I was skeptical when it came to trying out the Slider. Kyocera doesn't even appear on my tech radar, so imagine my surprise when the Slider turned out to be the finest phone I've ever used.

Yes, it's awkward at first. The sliding motion initially seems unnatural, but it soon becomes second nature and you'll find yourself wondering how you ever lived with a standard bar or clamshell. The phone need not be open to be used; all basic features, including the menu and camera, can be accessed with slide closed.


+Superior voice quality
+Beautifully smooth screen
+Excellent speaker
+MP3 Player
+Good Camera
+Decent battery life
+Solid feel
+Crystal-clear Bluetooth
+Expandable memory with micro SD cards
+Small footprint, low profile
+Great accessories included
+2.5mm jack, in case Bluetooth ain't your thing


-No FM radio
-Limited customization of menus, colors, and buttons
-Won't wash the dishes or cook supper

It's hard to review a handset and give an objective, reliable opinion, because there are simply too many variables that contribute to a phone's overall value, with the largest among these being the carrier. Do not expect the same level of satisfaction from Virgin that you'd get from Alltel; for our purposes here, these are two entirely different phones and the only one that I unreservedly recommend is the one from Alltel.
