Not good, not bad but not good

I received this phone as a gift for my birthday. After about two months my anntenna broke off. I have to step outside to talk and be at a window to text message. The fact that it doesn't paly any real tunes (not MP3 compatable) really ticks me off, and on top of it all, I need to physically take the battery out so my phone doesn;t turn itself on in clas X_X Less

I love it....

This is not a fancy phone... basic and reliable! I have put it through hell and it is still working very well. I find it simple to use and it looks cool.

It's Awesome!!

I wanted to get out of those nasty flip phones, and so I came upon a great quality phone, and for the past 2 years it has made me happy! It has the basic features which is great. I never really play games anyway, and it has my work schedual on it which is very helpful for me. I can't live without this phone!

my phone is a piece of crap this phone usually only lasts at least a year and it always turns on and off and dies really fast you can only talk for like an hour before it dies this phone sucks..
This phone was sent to me as a replacement after my kyocera k484 took a bath. Upon arrival, the key pad doesn''t work.

Looks nice but is EVIL!!

So the phone looks easy to use...and I was told it was the best phone to purchase. What an idiot I was to listen. My phone no longer rings!!! Kinda hard to get calls, don''t ya think!?! And, get this my battery dies after like an hour and I CAN''T even talk while charging it! I''m not even close to recommending this phone to ANYONE!

This phone is great, better than expected! I love the interchangeable faceplates! I have a bunch of them. Too bad changing them voids the warranty though. Long battery life. It''s so compact (fits in my small purse), easy to use, & has many cool ringtones. Also, I dropped it on concrete floor, & it still works fine. The only things that I would say are negative about this phone is that the keypad is so small it''s kind of difficult to dial the correct numbers, & reception isn''t the greatest. I can hear fine on the phone but the person I''m talking to can''t hear me the best. Overall, great phone, great price!!! Less

Cool phone, NO wallpaper or ringtones.

This phone is good with the right service provider, with cricket you can''t to my knowledge get ringtones or wallpaper unless your a great artist.

(Almost) Everything you need!

After losing my Nokia 3390 I needed a new phone amd chose the Kyocera Energi (K494) on Telus Pay & Talk. I''m quite impressed with the features and ease of use of this phone -- the transition was painless! I won''t bore you describing its features (you can read about them elsewhere) but I will tell you what is missing (a couple of small things that would be nice to have but aren''t a huge deal.) The faceplate is removable but the keypad is not, so you really can''t change the look of the phone or replace a worn-out keypad. There is no provision for entering long distance calling cards. I got around this by putting my cards into a regular phonebook entry. You can''t get this phone to vibrate and ring at the same time. It will vibrate THEN ring, but that''s as close as you get. If you''re somewhere loud you might not be able to hear the ring, but if you''re not in contact with the phone (say it''s in your coat pocket) you won''t feel the ring. And finally, you can''t recharge the phone and talk at the same time. Not a problem for me since I charge my phone at home and if I''m at home I''m using the landline. Less
