Kx16 photos???

I was under the impression that I could upload my photos off of my Kyocera Candid KX16 onto my computer. I bought the data cable bundle and installed the drivers but from there I am totally lost. Is it possible to transfer photos from the phone onto my computer and if so could someone please guide me in how to do so or to a site that will explain how? I have tried to google a search but all I have gotten were shopping sites. Any help here will be greatly appreciated.

Kyocera KX16 candid data cable help

I don't know about the rest of you but I have a problem with the data cable costing $70 for this phone!

Does anyone have the pen outs or wireing diagram for this cable! I have the parts to make my own bu I don't know what wires go where!

Any help with this would be welcomed because I can't find the data cable anywhere around here and like I said $70 off the web site is a bunch of bull!!!! That more then the darn Phone costs! (well almost!)

Recording ring tones

My cousin has a phone where it allows her to record her or one of her friends talking and then set what she recorded as her ring tone. I was wondering if the candid had the capability of doing that. I know there is a saved sounds folder but I don't know how to save the sounds. If anyone knows of a way to do this please respond! thanks.

KYKX16 "Candid" - here to stay?

I am a wireless consultant, and the candid is a top seller. Does anyone ever have any problems with this phone, or do you not like it because it looks 'cheap'? In my experience, people just want a cell phone, and to offer them the 'cheapest one'. Over all, had any tech. problems with it?

Easily Cracked Internal Display

I have encountered many people with a cracked internal display. In their concern they seem to always say, "i didn't even drop it or anything." Evidently, any pressure (even if its in your pocket and you're just leaning against something) can cause the crystal to break. Each customer denies any fault and there are reasons to make that lie but why would every customer have that same explaination? I am a skeptic that it is entirely the customers fault. Therefore, could there be a "pressure point" or "weak spot" in the construction to make this phone easily damaged. If anyone could help me figure out what is happening to my customers phones or a better way to caution them, please respond.

Thank you

cheep and cheerful

It has a decent looking (faux japanese), but the screen is tiny (even $0 phones are now 128 x 160 pixels for non camera phones) and the keypad layout is cheezy.

Other than that, nice phone for the cheapo's (which is most consumers).
