In-Depth Review of the sleek Kyocera Jet EVDO phone for the new content-oriented MVNO Amp'd.

Internet savvy teens (and tweens) have a tremendous appetite for entertainment, as well as placing a high priority on sharing their experiences with each other. The Jet is the first phone from Amp'd Mobile, the new service hoping to capitalize on the demands of today's youth. Amp'd offers cool cameraphones and affordable contracts that include data, voice, and Push-to-Talk service. The centerpiece however is the Amp'd Live service, which includes full-length music downloads and a large video library. The Jet is a great device for staying in touch with fellow young hipsters and accessing a wealth of entertaining online content.

Music Player Issues (and others, as it turns out)

I'm quite sure that the issues with the Jet music player not playing some tracks are the same as the ones with the Slider Sonic (since its the same exact phone except without EVDO and the Live/PTT service).

As far as battery life goes, what did you expect? This isn't a motorola v120. There is alot more going on here with about the same type of battery. So buy a car charger, and don't try to tell me that you will never use it, because I might be forced to smack you.

This goes for all EVDO phones. Everyone demands higher resolution and bigger screens, better speake...
WD2003, i will not rant back, but i don't think we're expecting too much from a phone when under normal usage, the battery lasts more than a day, or even a *full* day. there are plenty of ev-do phones out there with rich media capabilities that have s...

I am impressed w/ the phone. I wonder how the PTT works. Since it used Verizon's network, I would think its the same as Verizon.
No, Amp'd uses Kodiak, the same as Cingular. That makes it MUCH better than Verizon. 🙂

Build quality compared to A800

As you probobly know, I am a stickler for external build quality.

Any idea on how it fares up to the A800 by Samsung? Is the flip solid? How are the plastics? Do they feel hollow? Is there a cheap feeling battery door?
compared to the a800 i think you'll be rather happy. the plastics on the phone are all tight. there is no squeaking or that cheap hollow feeling around any part of the phone. but when holding it, it is clear this is a $99 phone: the finish is nice, bu...
