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

Decent phone for new smartphone user. However, 6 mo. into ownership problems started. Poor battery life. When it brushes the ear, must swipe screen to get call back. Erased pics reappear spontaneously. Poor storage space. Inconsistent all the way around! Frustrating.

    Worked fine for first month or so, then it began to freeze up. Had to continually remove battery, restart, and finish text or web browsing.

    Short battery life, small screen, bad sound. Save your cash. Buy another phone! You've been warned

      This phone is used for personal as well as BYOD at the office. Love its size, can fit it in pants pocket without much effort. Downside, drop calls, callers cant hear me at times, gurgle voices, all factors of either poor phone or weak network. Will be taking this model (2 phones)back to Radio Shack for replacement.
