Trouble. Verizon UNlaunches

Dropped ancher? Put it in dry dock? Verizon has stopped selling the Kyocera Duraforce Ultra 5G. Within a week of its first sales Verizon's website said that it was unavailable to order. A few days later they showed a shipping date of late March and a few days after that it showed a shipping date of April 1 2021. As of March 31st Verizon has removed the phone from their website. There are problems with the screen becoming unresponsive which is reset by hitting the power button and then unlocking the phone again. There are also problems with the screen touching itself. If you go into the developer section and turn on "show touches" (older phones was show taps), you will see a little circle show up for a second or so after you touch the phon...

Just a vote of support here - I'm having both of these same issues (non-responsive screen, and screen going wild with its own touches). I decided to go check the Verizon page to read other reviews and found it to be taken down...very interesting. I li...

Did you ever figure it out? I got the same issues with mine?
I did a factory reset. There was an update from Verizon about a week ago. I've tried it in safe mode. I've tried it with glove touch mode off. The problem still exists. It doesn't happen real often. It seems to be slightly worse if you got a lot of f...

Just got the 5g ultra from Verizon wireless website at the end of June, and I want to throw it in the woods. All the same problems you have, jumping screen by itself, and freezes up unresponsive and have to lockout and unlock then it's only responsive...

I am regretting this DuraForce Ultra and I'm also getting super annoyed at the Verizon carrier for this product. Out of the box, this phone was frozen and needed a master reset through safe mode...
I should have brought it back right then.

Do not buy this phone

I made the mistake of purchasing the DuraForce Ultra 5G in early April 2021 from Verizon and it has never worked properly. It drops their network and never reconnects unless you reset the device. Then it will pick up the network anywhere from 25 min. to 5 days before it drops it again only to go through the same process again. It will never pick up the network again until you reset everything. Verizon has sent out a new sim, a replacement phone, they have reset my phone number, I have run the phone is safe mode and they have done a network check of my area with no problems reported. The phone is apparently not ready for market as it is clearly a software issue. After over two months of troubleshooting and wasting approx, 40 some hours of my ...

Support timeline problematic for some people

The Ultra is available on Verizon as of 3.11.21. I started with the brigadier and security updates stopped when the PRO came out. Updates for the pro stopped when the pro 2 came out. Updates for the pro 2 were happening approximately every month on Verizon but it's been over 3 months since the last one in December (google security October). The ATT pro2 did get a security update in February 21 but who knows when or if they'll get the ultra. So if you buy late in the 2 year cycle Kyocera has been on you're not going to get updates for very long. Maybe that will change but I doubt it. Kyocera is a small player but I think they should support the phones for more than 2 years. There were problems with the pro and pro 2 that were not address...

5 days in no problems. I was pleasantly surprised initially that there were no garbage apps and games and facecrap. Then Verizon sent out the first update and about 12 or more apps showed up that I had to uninstall.

hope it is better quality than the duraforce pro - when does it release on verizon?

currently using the duraforce pro, which was replaced under warranty for overheating battery just before warranty ran out. the replacement phone (just like the original) is very slow and the screen repeatedly just freezes up when trying to do simple things like scrolling thru the android screens, and have to wait 20-30 seconds for the processor to catch up. the duraforce pro 2 came out remarkably quickly after the 1, but there were no deals and I refuse to fix the manufacturer's problem with five of my own 100 dollar bills, especially after only 24 months of use on the original phone. I intend to upgrade but it if doesn't work properly this time I will return it quickly. I do like the design and dislike the Sonim design as its too big and...

Kyocera DuraForce Ultra 5G

Hopefully AT&T picks up this phone as well.
There are many that need rugged phones like these.
