Beware!! Problem Phone!!
Reviewed on Monday January 26, 2004 by Andrea, Norfolk, VA
I am writing concerning the various problems I have been having with my Kyocera 5135 phone. For one, in the 9 months that I have had it, this is my fourth phone of this same type. It seems like every couple of months something new goes wrong with the phone, and I take it in to my service povider (Alltel) and they give me a new one, which also goes bad in a matter of months. Now this one has gone bad. I was on the phone on Saturday, January 24, 3004 when suddenly the phone completely turned off. When I tried to turn it back on, only the backlighting came on. So now, I can make and receive phone calls, but I cant see who is calling me, or what numbers I am calling. I know that if I go into Alltel all they are going to do is give me another Kyocera 5135, which will eventually malfunction again. With having four phones, I have also had three (home) chargers. They too seem to stop working after a few months. When it broke the first time, Alltel was gracious enough to provide me with a new one for free, but when it happened the second time I had to purchase a charger (and trust me they are not cheap). With me being away at school, I need to have a reliable phone that I can count on. What I am basically saying is, I purchased a Kyocera 5135 for $200.000, I would like to get my money's worth.
