The SOHO will never make it to Verizon.

If it does it won't be on the shelf very long.

Look for it in a Bubble Pack at a Radio Shack near you. The message from "Way With Yourself" is simply not so.

All bets are off..this phone is another P.O.S from Kyocera. Stick to the sure thing..since Kyocera is sinking fast. So fast, that they need to move to Mexico. Make any sense??

Recommendation to all..stick to the real phones that work such as Nokia, LG, Samsung and MOTO. Rolling Eyes

Don't know what your problem is with Kyocera, but I know 3 or 4 people who have the Soho almost as long as I have, and they like it and have had no problems.

We'll have to wait and see if Verizon does get it and how well it does.

LG phones are great? Hmm, seems to me I have read about multiple problems with the LG VX5550 over the past few months. Haven't heard about anything like that with Kyocera phones. Battery problems, yes, but they didn't make those.

I bought a SoHo from a Verizon store last week. What on earth is the problem you're having with SoHo/Verizon??? It seems to be an obsession of some sort.

I wanted a simple basic cell phone with email capability. Went to Verizon store and bought the SoHo. Awesome sound, clearest phone I've ever used. Once I figure out how to set up my email I'll like it even better! I am tryiing to figure out what POP and IMAP are. But the phone is great. Hubby got a Samsung and wishes he'd gotten the Kyocera.

I agree...I have had the soho with alltel for 9 months now...have never had any issues with anything. In fact my phone is the one that normally works in the hard to reach places.
Sound is great and reception is very very good. Speakerphone is fine. Ringer volumne isn't the loudest...but at the same time it is adequate unless at a concert or sporting event...battery life is pretty good....have to make sure you fully charge the battery and though they don't say this...I find if it is discharged once in a while it seems to work better.
