I own the Koi as of now, have had it for 2 weeks now, and here is what i have come up with.. Enjoy Wink -KO!-

I have a problem with people trying to open my phone like a clamshell, it does have some give and was made for people to do that. (please not so hard next time.) I spoke to the Kyocera rep about this phone, and he stated that there is a titanium bolt that runs through the swivel point. (nice touch)

Here are some pro's and cons i have come to find while still exploring my koi, I've had for about 2 weeks with US Cellular, i am a sales associate.

...Originality is the key to sucess in my book, and one of the only phones i have seen that give you the option to create 15 sec. clips to play hold music for your callers on hold. it has 2 options so you can have up to 3 people on hold.
...Camera and flash, flash is actually functional
...Video and sound - 15 sec. clips Mpeg4
...Unique design, (strike up a convo)
...Titanium bolt, holds swivel together
...Phone is able to be answered open, or closed
...Phone displayes the last 15 calls missed/dialed/incoming/ all clearly labeled with a picture
...The menu wheel, is extremely easy to use and has a scroll mouse to access. (blows people's minds)
...The belt clip that comes with it wasn't supposed to have a clear plastic cover to protect the screen, but they did come with em "GOOD JOB KYOCERA!"

...BATT LIFE?!? Does it exist? it is a huge screen, i figured as much that the batt life would be junk, that's why i have a car charger.
...Ringtones. (doesn't even come with as many as the SoHo) also, the phone doesn't have a feature to vibrate and ring at the same time, (with standard tones) must D/L
...Profiles, I came from a Nokia and it had 5 customizable profiles. This phone either has all or silent. i would only use 3, but it only gives 2.
...Wallpaper, not full screen, but i am starting to like it not being...
...Phonebook, when scrolling to a certain letter, it does not display what that letter is, hit it too many times and you get thrown off course.
...While charging, you can't lock, or place phone on silent (Feature Currently Unavailable) Once i wasn’t unable to turn phone on while charging, that lasted 15 min. and is fine now.
...No bluetooth. would be awesome to have that for handy-dandy file transfer with my Pc Because US Cellular does "NOT" cripple bluetooth technology, only CDMA network available with it, as of right now.
