      Comments about Virgin Mobile® Kyocera Event No-Contract Phone (Black):

      This is the second time ive purchased this phone. First one was okay for the first month, then it just got ridiculous. The phone lasted me about 6 months before it just started restarting and shutting down. So being short on money i bought a second for $15 at my local store, didnt even last 4 months before it did the same. Mind you, i rarely dropped this phone. Cheap. Not a good choice if you'd like to keep a phone more than 5 months! Wouldnt recommend

          I bought this at Radio Shack. The phone was on sale, also I had a $10 coupon so I got it for $19.99 plus. Hey, an S3 or Note, it isn't. But for $20 I will say that it's worth every penny!

              Comments about Virgin Mobile® Kyocera Event No-Contract Phone (Black):

              The Event is actually a half decent starter smartphone that has one major drawback...the constant freezing. Don't really understand the cause of this constant freezing as the Hydro, which as a comparable phone, seems to lack the same issues.

              When it does work, it is great for basic smartphone functions (e-mail, maintaining a calendar, GPS apps, etc.).

              But then again, the freezing. Thankfully, I'm patient and don't mind rebooting the phone 3 or 4 times a day. Guessing I'm the exception, though, and not the rule.

                I normally don't take th time to review, but R.S. gave me extra - including time, so I'll return same.

                I use the product mostly for calling my mom in emergency's, and i text and game a lot.
                The phone is fast and works great, but it sometimes freezes up, and doesn't turn off. Also, the keypad is a bit small and sometimes the swype-to-talk feature is a bit wonky.
                Otherwise it's great.
