RE: kyocera Rise / virgin mobile: Hotspot & user issues

Is there a hack or reprograming of this phone that will remove the blocks that the phone carrier has programed to disable certain features that the manufacturer has orginally programed the phone to do?

Touché, Sprint.

There may yet be life after death for PTT. The major drawback of all the other PTT apps in the Play Store is that you can only communicate with others that have downloaded it. Being able to connect with what's left of the Nextel community (albeit tattered at this point) may actually be a benefit to choosing Sprint without having to go with the fashion challenged Nextel handsets... And once its available to all of Android, even better still. More income, and a subscriber base not limited to any one carrier. Bravo Sprint Wink

Cell-phone assist for seniors

This is a good idea, at least in principle, but it's a matter of detail & execution as to whether it will be actually useful to seniors.

Hopefully Sprint also incorporated things like:

(1) Large font, vastly simplified interface design (i.e. the number, size & legibility of icons & text on each screen),

(2) Rubbery, grippy cases (the iPhone could never be a serious phone for seniors, because of the ridiculously stupid slick-backed case Jobs insisted on).

(3) A convenient way to carry their phones on a lanyard the seniors can hang around their necks if they wish (phone is less likely to get lost/misplaced, it's closer to their ears so they will actually hear the phone ring/beep, they can get to it quickly so they can answer it bef...

iD pack for Cool Seniors

My grandfather couldn't even begin to know what a smartphone is, let alone use one. Give him a flip phone, however, even a slide-out with a keyboard, and hes good to go. Does sprint really think that seniors want to use any of those Smartphones they named support this ?

Just To Clarify...

"There is only one lock screen shortcut, and it opens the camera (the dedicated camera button only works when the phone is already awake). Otherwise, the only actions you can take from the lock screen are to silence or answer incoming calls."

Technically, this is not true; ICS allows the notification shade to be pulled down from the lock screen for quick and easy access to...well, notifications. It's an obscure addition that not a lot of people know about.

Low-end, not mid-range

I think the reviewer is incorrect calling the Rise a mid-range phone. It's lower end and priced as much. It sells for $99 at Virgin Mobile. Secondly, I don't think the camera is that good - accurate with color or focus, as megapixels only relate to print size - on ANY low-end phone. If I'm wrong about that, maybe someone can provide an example of a cheap unsubsidized phone (

See Samsung...

Stock ICS even makes a cheap low end device like this look good!
