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

This phone acts aweful on wifi. It will freeze up and crash a lot on many apps. If you use the 3G it works way better and doesn't crash or freeze. Also if you turn off both. Atlease it does on my phone. If you text a lot its great as you get unlimited texting. Web browsing is pretty good too it doesn't support flash player but it only hardly crashes on websites if you use the 3G. All in all this phone would've been great without wifi features. Faster too!

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

    I bought this for my 13 year old daughter. I was worried about starting her out with a really expensive phone, so I went with The Kyocera EVENT from Virgin Mobile. We have been loyal Virgin Mobile customers for 7 plus years. She loves her new phone! I love that the phone was only 30$ and the monthly bill is only 35$ for 300 min, unlimited data and texting. NO PROBLEMS SO FAR!!!!

        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.
