I was disappointed in the DuraPlus's calling capabilities. Phone calls sounded terrible. They were full of noise and interference. Worse, the earpiece was absolutely anemic. It barely produced any volume at all, even when set to the maximum volume. Hoping for the speakerphone to save you? Don't get your hopes up. It's awful as well. Given this phone's sheer size and bulk, there's no excuse for sub-par voice performance. Voice is this phone's meat-and-potatoes feature, and it fails badly." (end quote)
I tried two DuraPlus phones in a row, both had excellent sound quality in normal "phone-to-the-ear" conversations, but both failed miserably on speakerphone. Very weak sound, very "muddy" sound in...

A knockoff of the Moto i365
I just don't get why Sprint didn't ask Motorola to take its best Nextel phones (i580, i365 for example) and swap out the iDEN chipset & replace it with a CDMA chipset. That would make the transition for us long-time, diehard Nextel users more palatable. The iDEN Motos are a known quantity, whereas the Kyocera phones are complete unknowns when it comes to ruggedized models.
But good old Sprint, in its infinite wisdom (not) has so far commissioned only Kyocera phones for the new Sprint Direct Connect PTT phones. Just like everything else Sprint does, you have to slap your forehead in amazement.
