  1. I hate this phone so much!!! If I have l
    ocation on I get usage manager pop ups, I can’t download a lot of apps because most won’t move to the SD Card and the function of it is terrible.
    Call good texts good and basic browser great but if you like apps you don’t want this phone.

  2. Bought 4 for Christmas. The first day using it it constantly froze or would randomly turn off. Software updated so hoped that would fix it but didn’t. I then tried a second phone and it worked perfectly for a few days so I figured first was just a dud. So then I proceeded to switch kids old phones to the their new one and within a day they were all freezing up. Only way to turn it off is to hold power button down for what seems like forever.
    I loved it when it worked but is too much of a hassle turning it off & on all the time. Should’ve saved my $. Very disappointed. And since I can’t just switch aim card back to old phone we’re stuck with them or have to buy new sim cards. The att customer service rep said the old sim cards are now permanently deactivated and cannot reactivate them. ?

    • sadly no… it’s one of kyocera’s customizations of the OS and resides in the system menu and not as a separate app so you can’t disable it and unless they release an update that adds the option to turn it off you’re stuck with either turning every feature that makes a smartphone useful off to satisfy it’s overzealous battery drain warnings or living with the notification that won’t just go away

  3. Mine did not come with 8GB but 4GB and the usage manager come on when I turn on location for the weather app. I am using a 32 GB SD card with my phone so far but wish the battery lasted longer.

    • Yeah, the whole, 8GB seems to be a line of bull. Fresh out of the box has only 3.88GB of space, and with the included bloatware installed, leaves you with less than that to use for apps.

  4. Worst fancy phone we ever owned. Apps don’t move to SDcard, it’s very slow, and the usage manager is more annoying then a hungry mosquito!

  5. just bought the phone. don’t care about the data usage or GB stuff. camera works great for me, i did have a problem with the SIM CARD rebooting the phone, so far what I did for it….I factory reset the phone, re did everything, re downloaded everything to my phone, music-photos, etc. haven’t had it pop up yet. wish me luck on that. for the headphones thing. I will tell you it depends on what headphones you use, I use a bluetooth wireless old school looking thing i bought at walgreens. it works great with the phone and is loud. i’ve read that people had issues it was low. so just a suggestion. it’s really loud in mine. I only use the phone for calling, or texting work and music. and take pics and upload them to computer to edit. nothing to do about the usage manager thing that’s always there, so i ignore it..basically forget it’s there.
