i decided to go with vmobile a little more than a year and a half ago, after a run in with a contract carrier. i've been through quite a few phones in this time including a slider sonic, marbl, and a flasher.so far, this phone has been the best option for me, aside from the slider sonic (rip)pros-awesome reception (sprints coverage is pretty decent in my area)-clear sound quality-decent megapixel camera with photo editing-standard phone tools (organizer, calc, stopwatch, etc.)-supports real music tones-awesome color scheme and keypad backlightcons-led flash (which doubles as flashlight)-sometimes while texting, the cursor is sent to a random place in the text - i've experienced this problem with kyocera phones in the past, especially those running this os-random icons used for menu options (unchangable)i've had the phone for a little over 2 months now, and i think it absolutely kicks arse. i have actually run into some problems with the display turning white and freezing up on me, which i understand happens to phones sometimes. i'll most likely contact kyocera for repairs/replacement unless vmobile offers a warranty exchange program.but aside from that minor problem, the phone's been awesome to me. it's small and the color scheme/layout of the camera and red keypad backlight give meaning to the name cyclops. i get compliments on how neat the phone looks, and a few on how the phone looks like a toy (which makes me love it that much more).all in all, i think this is one of the better phoens vmobile has put out. an awesome choice for anybody that likes to snap larger emospace-size pics and dislikes contracts.
