Yeah so what are we suposed to do with these phones? They were only contracted for use by Amp'd....now that Amp'd ceases to exist...are we all really stuck with a $200 phone that is useless?

Anybody got any ideas? Can you trade them in? Sell them? Port them? What's a girl to do????? Crying or Very sad

Kyocera Jet turns off?

I bought a Kyocera Jet for ampd, and love it, except it seems to just turn off for no reason, and won't turn back on until it's plugged in. Apparently it happens if I press all the buttons on the front face simultaneously (which I guess happens a lot when it's in my pocket) I was just wondering if anyone else noticed this and how can I fix it?
my randomly turns off too. mine restarts automatically though, but it's kind of annoying. and mine doesn't even have to have all the buttons pressed. i close my phone after sending a txt or something, and it restarts for no reason.

Speakerphone

Does anyone know how the speakerphone is on this phone? I have a nokia 6620 and the speakerphone sucks a$$ on that phone, completely useless.

Jet or Remix

Well Remix is suppost to come out pretty soon and i was wondering what you guys think is better.
Kyocera Jet or Slider Remix?
Thnx! Very Happy
Definitely the kyocera Jet, simple because it has a better look, and because it adds Push to Talk, and Evdo.

video ?

i heard that you can record 15 second video's to the phone

but you can also change the settings to record to the memory stick and you can record up to three minutes.

is that true?

Another Wonderful Review

"The Jet is the first phone available from Amp'd Mobile, so it is all very new. As can be expected, there are some glitches. For example, out of the box the Amp'd Live feature (Amp'd's live/streaming media portal) does not work. Tech support is very friendly and assures me this will be fixed but at this point I cannot try out all the phone's features.

The hardware itself looks very stylish. The case is plastic which feels a little cheaper than my previous phone but it seems to be sturdy and it is all put together well. The pieces are well-machined, the buttons respond well, and the styling is consistent and attractive. My only reservation is that the slide seems a little awkward, but this does not interfere with the operation of the phone...

Music Player Issues (and others, as it turns out)

I'm quite sure that the issues with the Jet music player not playing some tracks are the same as the ones with the Slider Sonic (since its the same exact phone except without EVDO and the Live/PTT service).

The issue is that if the filename is too long, the song won't show in the list. I'm not sure what the limit is, but who cares? just make the name shorter until it works.

As far as battery life goes, what did you expect? This isn't a motorola v120. There is alot more going on here with about the same type of battery. So buy a car charger, and don't try to tell me that you will never use it, because I might be forced to smack you.

This goes for all EVDO phones. Everyone demands higher resolution and bigger screens, better speake...

WD2003, i will not rant back, but i don't think we're expecting too much from a phone when under normal usage, the battery lasts more than a day, or even a *full* day. there are plenty of ev-do phones out there with rich media capabilities that have s...

Impressed

I am impressed w/ the phone. I wonder how the PTT works. Since it used Verizon's network, I would think its the same as Verizon.
No, Amp'd uses Kodiak, the same as Cingular. That makes it MUCH better than Verizon. Smile

Build quality compared to A800

As you probobly know, I am a stickler for external build quality.

Any idea on how it fares up to the A800 by Samsung? Is the flip solid? How are the plastics? Do they feel hollow? Is there a cheap feeling battery door?
compared to the a800 i think you'll be rather happy. the plastics on the phone are all tight. there is no squeaking or that cheap hollow feeling around any part of the phone. but when holding it, it is clear this is a $99 phone: the finish is nice, bu...

Amp'd Mobile

This phone will be released for a new MVNO-Amp'd Mobile.

-Amp'd will offer BOTH prepaid & postpaid accounts.

-Data packages WILL be available.

Do not have the link, but a rep w/ Amp'd mobile described that the plans will be similar to your cable company...eg you have basic cable for a set price (think of this as your minutes) and then you add on subscriptions to premium channels (think of this as data packages, text, etc)

Hope this is helpful.
Can't wait for the Launch!!

One Question

Around wat month does this phone come out and how much? Very Happy
Thanks
Amp'd originally announced Q3 as their planned launch timeframe.

They planned to have a lineup starting at about $100 for the cheapest model. I'm not sure if the Jet is that model or not - it could be the entry- or the mid-level model, but I'm pret...

Amp'd shares verizon network correct?

Is this correct? Can verizon customers use this phone or any Amp'd for for that matter?
Yes! Very Happy
...
Probably not. Amp'd is an MVNO. They do use Verizon's network, but everything they offer to consumers is 100% separate from Verizon.

It's perfectly possible - and in fact quite likely - that Amp'd will lock their phones like Sprint does. It's just ...

Is Amp'd going to be a pre-paid service???

What type of services will they offer? I read EVDO and all of that but will they offer actual data plans or just cater to the youth market with flashing streaming videos and ringers and such?
Amp'd is going to be a pre-paid MVNO service geared toward teens. They are using Verizon's EVDO network to provide teens and the like with video, music. etc. Most likely, no data plans.
They said in March they plan to offer both pre- and post-paid plans.
