Who in their right mind would put a very sensitive button on top of a phone that disconnects a call or calls someone out of the blue

No music playback....

I was seriously considering ditching my Blackberry for this phone until I read that you cannot play music on it. There is no music player and no file management feature to find/use .mp3(or the like)....
With that massive external speaker setup that should have been a priority element.
To bad I didn't see this message a while ago because you can use DuraXT with a microSD card and transfer non protected songs from your computer to the device or via Bluetooth. The phone has a feature called memory storage, and within that area is how ...

DuraXT Reception?

I have used an i580 since it was introduced (actually I've had 3 in a row after the previous one died) because it was the Nextel phone with the best reception. But the Nextel antenna nearest my house has been decommissioned.

I'm going to have to switch from Nextel to Sprint and am considering the DuraXT. I'm on the fringe of the nearest Sprint antenna. In the past, the Sprint phones which I have tried at my house have not gotten good reception.

How does the DuraXT reception compare to the i580 reception?

How does the DuraXT reception compare to other Sprint phones reception?

It's as good as any sprint Direct Connect phone is going to be, just louder speaker. Honestly try it, and if you have issues call the airrave department and they will send you a free signal booster.

The Walkie will not be as good as Nextel in its ...
The absolute champ for reception of the recent-model Nextel phones is the i365, with "rubber-ducky" antenna. I have carried both the i580 and the i365 with rubber ducky antenna, and the latter wins hands-down in terms of reception. With the i365+rubbe...

Finally a match for the old Moto iDEN phones?

It sounds like this phone gets better reception and better audio quality and louder speaker than its predecessors. I know the first few Kyocera Sprint DC phones didn't have the greatest voice quality. Glad to see Sprint is upping their game for those die-hard iDEN users who won't give up their old Motorola bricks. I know I had a hard time giving up my i530! Looks like this would be a decent replacement. Especially now that the iDEN network is doomed come 2013 ☚ī¸ Nice review by the way!
Agreed, it is a good review and it sounds like Sprint & Kyocera are trying to correct the shortcomings/defects of the original models intended to replace the Motorola Nextel phones.

I still dislike the fact that the Kyocera phones when set to One-T...
Thanks for the review its nice that PS still gives love to the flip phones..

Doesn't look all that rugged.

For a phone that can resist being thrown in water, and "blowing rain" this device sure seems to have alot of holes in it's body. I would be interested to hear from an owner of this device, just how rugged / water resistant is it ?
I had a Sanyo taho, the phone that was a couple behind this phone (before the duramax) and it was very tough.

We threw it off the roof of the shop here about 5, atleast 30 feet onto asphalt and it worked just fine. the battery popped out only once....
