Who else?

This looks like a step down from my old motorola v950

The most basic thing Sprint allows Kyocera to screw up royally

I'm sorry, but from the review, it sounds like there are so many things that us iDEN folks are accustomed to having perfect right out of the bat, that it's a wonder that this phone ever made it out of the lab and onto store shelves. Why do I say that??? Here's why...

The phone's volume on the ear piece and loud speaker are both weak at best. If you're doing anything outside where there is sound above say 70 decibels (which happens often on even "quiet" construction sites), then this phone will be useless.

Seriously?? Kyocera??

If one thing customers like about iden phones besides the DC is the loud speaker and good quality motorola iden phones. I don't know why they don't stick with moto instead of using this garbage company that makes crap phones.

2008 Called, They Want Their Phones Back.
