Phone is decent, but Sprint Direct Connect SUCKS
on September 12, 2012
The Kyocera DuraPlus Phone is decent to mediocre at best. It's best point is that it's rugged. It can take a drop and keep working. The problem is that, in San Antonio, TX, at least, Sprint Direct Connect SUCKS. It's anything but a direct connection. When it works, the audio is often garbled. More time than not, however, it fails to connect at all. This is a great disappointment because we were told that it was as good as the NexTel the 10 DuraPlus phones were replacing. Sadly, we are stuck for another 18 or so months. My recommendation...DON'T BUY THIS PHONE OR THE SPRINT DIRECT CONNECT SERVICE!!!!!
