Review: Kyocera Jet for Amp'd

Menus Calls / Contacts Messaging  

Holding the down key on the D-pad launches the text messaging main menu, where clicking on the first option will launch a new message. Composing a new text message begins with addressing it, where there are options for recent recipients, selecting from the address book, as well as choosing from pre-configured group lists. Presenting this option directly in the text message window (as well as under the Amp'd PTT menu) is something we certainly think is implemented better on the Jet than on other phones. Composing the message utilizes EZI rapid text entry, which while different from the more prevalent T9 input method, proved to be no less accurate, as we were able to type quickly and easily.

The messaging application also provides a couple of exceptionally useful functions that we haven't seen on other phones. First, from the message compose screen, the Jet allows for a message to have a specified future delivery date and time. Second, the messaging application contains a block list, where offending numbers can be added, and any message from a number on that list will not be delivered to the phone.
