"Power Cycling Problem"

The good: A cool rugidized phone that does not require a data plan.

The bad: Can hardly see the display in bright sun even with the brightness set to maximum.
Phone will shut down on its own.
Needs at least a 4 megapixel camera.

Summary: There is a problem with this phone where it will shut down and the only way to get it to power on again is to momentarily remove the battery. I returned the first phone thinking that this was just a problem with that particular unit however the second phone does the same thing. I emailed Kyocera and they replied that they are aware of the "power cycling problem" and are investigating but no other info was given. I followed up on this email a month later but they have not replied. I would not purchase this phone until Kyocera fixes this problem.
