Review: Kyocera DuraPlus for Sprint
The DuraPlus has EV-DO Rev. A connectivity and a WAP browser on board. The default home page is Sprint's portal, which is a disaster of links to content that costs you money. Beware this minefield. The browser is able to navigate Sprint's horrid content portal quickly, though, and it actually does a pretty good job rendering HTML web sites, too. You can choose to visit other web sites, but it's a serious pain with the 12-key keypad. I've forgotten how unsatisfying it is to use feature phones that don't have touch screens to surf the web.
The one thing I really like is the navigation toolbar that the web browser has. Press the left soft key, and you can quickly jump back and forward between recently visited web sites, as well as hop back to your home page, and a Google search page.

The DuraPlus only allows you to customize some of the really basic things, such as ringtones, ringer IDs, screen savers, etc. As noted, you can alter the main menu between grid and list views, but further customization to the way apps and folders are organized isn't available.
You can also change the font size between normal and large. The size increase is just enough to make a difference, but it doesn't go far enough for those who need very large fonts.
