          Comments about Virgin Mobile® payLo® Kyocera Kona No-Contract Phone:

          I bought this at the unbelievable black friday price just to use it as a prop in photographs, etc. I had to check it out though, and I am totally blown away by the quality of this phone! I have never activated it, so I can't really speak regarding call quality or battery life, but the physical quality of the phone is superb, even at the regular price. The inside screen is fantastic by flip phone standards, and the outside one is quite good. The keypad has nice, hard buttons, with a nice clicky feel, although they are just a bit on the slick side. Really, I'm being a bit nit picky with that. the back has a pleasing rubbery texture, and although the whole phone is plastic it has a nice quality feel all over. The only styling point I don't like is the fake carbon fiber pattern around the outside screen. As I understand it this is a feature of the Virgin Mobile version, in case you were looking for another provider. Finally, both sides have a nice wide groove to slip your thumb in to flip the phone open, which is the cornerstone of any good flip phone design. I paid next to nothing for this phone, and if I could get away with a flip phone for daily use, this would be my everyday phone.

            Comments about Virgin Mobile® payLo® Kyocera Kona No-Contract Phone:

            I'm reviewing this on behalf of an elderly couple that live nearby. A friend pointed out how inexpensive this phone was, and they asked me to take them to the nearest Radio Shack to get one to replace the phone that they used with Assurance wireless.

            They seem to love this phone. OK, they don't do much with it. They only make calls. Occasionally, they even took some pictures with it (I think the lens placement is ridiculous). They aren't tech-savvy and they don't know much about technology. All they want is a basic phone and this is perfect for them.

            The phone that originally came with their phone plan was pretty awful. They said that it dropped calls all the time, and that the buttons were small and hard to see. This phone has big buttons, and is MUCH easier to operate. The clam-shell makes pocket-dialing impossible, and this one gets a better signal. The battery lasts OK, and they charge it only once every couple of days. If anyone out there uses that Assurance wireless plan, this is the perfect phone for you.

              Comments about Virgin Mobile® payLo® Kyocera Kona No-Contract Phone:

              Supposed to have 26 day standby battery life - we only got 6 hours from a fully charged phone. Assumed it was defective, so returned it for another, and had exactly the same incredibly short battery life (on standby....no calls, texts, etc)
