My New Candid Kyocera Cricket Phone

Posted on: October 9th, 2007 by Michelle Chiles

The good: The phone is goo for going out of town.The bad: It's not good when you slam the phone and when you open it back up the screen goes blank.Summary: My Review is that the cricket phone does a lot. For example the cricket takes pictures and it also sends your picture to your e-mail for you. The cricket also lets you download songs .And the kind of cricket I got is a Kyocera Cricket.

The good: very user friendly phoneThe bad: the display stopped working after 7 months. It's still under warranty but it makes me wonder about the long term durability.Summary: It has been a good phone and I would recommend it to others as a good basic phone.

Pretty good so far!

Posted on: February 27th, 2007 by O Omen

The good: Camera (hey, it's a phone, not a camera.)Colour Screen.External LCD.Pretty good variety of features.Durable.The bad: User manual not very detailed (have to find some of the short cuts on your own).Can be a little glitchy sometimes.Have to do surgery to change face plates.Summary: My family has had 2 of these phones for over a month and hasn?t really found any problems with the phone itself. I have had a great deal of problems, but they are with Alltel NOT the phone. They were not setup properly when they left Alltel and I?ve had to talk to Alltel technical support several times now (very annoying!).The only problem I have encountered so far was trying to make a photo into wallpaper and it would restart itself sometimes when I tried. The people at Alltel couldn?t give me an answer, although they did tell me to run an update on the software from my phone (so if you have an old Candid, you might want to check and see if you have the latest software update on your phone). The answer was that the size of pictures I was taking was wrong, when I fixed that I could make my photos into wallpaper with no problems. My husband?s phone hasn?t had any problems or glitches at all.I?ve read complaints that the Kyocera Candid has no games, but aha, it does! According to the User?s Manual on the Kyocera website it has games, but they may not be available on your phone, check with your service provider. What I discovered is that many service providers remove the games so that you have to pay from them. Not the phone?s fault, just the crappy service providers.I haven?t had a problem yet with battery life, but since pretty much all batteries develop a memory I?ll keep an eye on it.Overall I give this phone a good grade; it was good for the price (free) and for what I use it for. I don?t really like to text, so I wasn?t too worried about that feature. I?m also not interested in spending hundreds of dollars on a phone just because it?s ?cool?, it?s a phone, it makes phone call, enough said.

good phone for the money

Posted on: October 11th, 2006 by Carole Holmes

The good: has a decent camera, easy to use, and shos time on the front of phone The bad: hard to text on Summary: this was the first Kyrocera phone i have had since this one i went on to buy a second which i found much easier to text on the Kyrocera Strobe, however the candid was easy to use if your not use to texting, downloading, and using features on the phone like speed dial, i also liked that you can make the phone where you cant use it while roaming that was a nice plus saves me a few times :) anyway i think this phone is a good value for the price i paid for it :)

Cell Phone

Posted on: October 1st, 2006 by Sarah Nicholson

The good: Blue buttons, camera, small, very popular, has all the extras on itThe bad: sometimes turns off when you dont want it to, scratches easilySummary: I love my cell phone but there could be better. I take my cell phone everywhere.I dont know what I would do without it. But sometimes it just dont want to work the way I want it to. I would like to have a cell phone that accually stays on when I want it on and goes off when I want it to go off.

Kyocera Candid Camera Phone

Posted on: September 24th, 2006 by Anonymous

The good: It's compact and light weight. Easy open and close,numbers are easy to see and use. Can go directly to camera mode with one touch,can adjust volumn without opening the phone, charger plugs in easely,sleek black and silver design,antenna thick so it doesn't bend or breakThe bad: There is really nothing I don't like about my phone. I have nothing bad to say.Summary: I have recommended this phone to others alot. I've had it almost a year now and will keep it and continue using it. Others have checked the phone and they like it also and have stated they would like to get one also. There have been some who never saw it before and are looking for a new phone so I believe they might have bought one of these.

Kyocera Candid phone

Posted on: September 21st, 2006 by Robin Foster

The good: I am not cell phone "savvy" but this flip phone is easy to use, has a good display and lots of standard ring tones.The bad: Speaker volumn doesn't go high enough for me - can't hear it when it's in my purse.Summary: Overall, I'm happy with my phone, I have had 2 Kyocera flip phones over the last several years and always enjoyed the good quality of them. My only complaint was when my first phone just up and fried one day, didn't have a chance to retrieve my phonebook.

The Candid Rocks

Posted on: August 31st, 2006 by Thomas Van Tress

The good: Very easy interface, able to do a lot of functions without having to go into the main menu, allows user to easily set up group texting, quick dialing from phonebook was a breeze by typing the first letters of their name. very useful when driving. also allows voice calling with voice recognition software. connected easily with mobile phone tools for me PC.The bad: Lose screen in bright sunlight. some of the ringtones too low to hear in loud situations. buttons were too small for texting rapidly. range of antenna should be better.Summary: This phone has served me and my family well. Camera is mediocre but useful when forgetful minds forget the regular camera. Definitely have to buy the car charger as when doing multiple functions it would drain the battery much quicker.
