"The strobe does what it feels like"

The good: Good texting phone. Good clarity. The bad: Does what it feels like Summary: Had one strobe for 4 months. Replaced it and now my second strobe is doing the same as my first. It turns off randomly, unlocks randomly, press the power button and calls a random number in your contacts,switches from vibrate to ringing mode randomly. I hate the phone.

"This phone stinks!"

The good: keyboard The bad: The display stinks. no video. bulky. Summary: I basically only use my phone for texting. I got my first one in Feb of 08 and I liked it alot until in April the screen started messing up. At first it would just freeze up for like sec, then it started distorting images. i was receiving texts upside down. And then the back light stopped working. So i got a replacement. Now (August 08) my replacement started doing the same thing. Except now both screens are black and... more...

"The Strobe's alright."

The good: Fast texting, call clarity, good internet. The bad: The screen connectors wear out easily, so it has about a year's worth of usage. Summary: I am currently on my third model of this phone, and it's time for a new one. I got the Strobe on September 20, 2006. I'm sixteen years old, so you can imagine my delight with the Qwerty keyboard, fast texting, call clarity, internet access, etc. This phone was my pride and joy... until May rolled around. The screens stopped "talking to each... more...

The good: Its great for texting, durable i have dropped so many times in so many different places, The bad: Where to start...it restarts like it's a computer, you can't talk while it is charging, sometimes you have to adjust the charger in order for it to charge, it switches to roaming for no reason, kind of bulky Summary: This is a good phone for texting other than that it is ok. It is small, yet bulky and the battery can go bad pretty quickly.I carry my charger in my purse when I go out... more...

"Texting unlimited"

The good: good keypad, big inside screen, ok picture quality The bad: small outside screen, not bluetooth compatible Summary: This is a phone for big texters, like me. Even though you've probably heard that a lot so far, it's true. That's all I looked for when I was buying a phone. "is it good with texting? Should I go with a razor (size over everything) or this Kyocera (texing over everything)? If u luv 2 txt, go w/dis phone.

"Bluetooth does NOT work"

The good: Nice keyboard for a flip phone. The bad: Just refuses to sync with bluetooth. No way to transfer photos or sound without sending it as an SMS. No data push. No ability to install your own applications. Summary: I have this phone through Surewest. I was also assured that I could access and transfer my media files easily, and that bluetooth worked. NOPE! The manual deliberately dances around this point- there is no way to transfer your media files off this phone without spending a... more...

"This phone is fantastic!"

The good: Small, full keyboard, user friendly The bad: looks a little thick Summary: One of my co-workers had an LG ENV which has much of the same features but wasn't available with my carrier. However, my phone is more compact and the flash and low light feature make it take really good cam shots. I LOVE it! It's such an easy to use, full featured phone. The full keyboard makes texting really easy. Definitely something to consider if you like texting.

"Great For Texting!"

The good: The inside keyboard is really nice if you're into texting! It's so much easier than a regular phone! The bad: If you take a picture using the outside screen, it stays that size when you open it, and it's a little dificult to take a picture with it flipped open. Summary: I've had the Strobe for about 6 months and I like it a lot compared to phones I've had in the past. It's very bulky in your pocket, though, which gets annoying at first, but otherwise, it isn't a bad phone. Like I... more...
