Kyocera Jet for Amp'd Mobile review: Kyocera Jet for Amp'd Mobile


The Kyocera Jet comes with a sharp, colorful LCD; EV-DO support; a speakerphone; a 128MB TransFlash card; built-in GPS; and access to streaming video and the Amp'd music store. It's also inexpensive for a 3G multimedia phone.

The Kyocera Jet has small, hard-to-press keys; a submegapixel camera; and no Bluetooth or analog roaming. Plus, it has a tendency to freeze.

The Kyocera Jet is a bargain 3G multimedia phone for Amp'd Mobile but is saddled with an underwhelming VGA camera, a small and annoying keypad, and a tendency to freeze at inopportune moments.

Kyocera Jet for Amp'd Mobile


I consider myself a pretty fair person and although I knew that Amp'd Mobile was a growing company when I started my service, I had NO IDEA that I would find them to be one of the WORST companies that I have ever conducted business with.

Honest Review: Amp'd Mobile does not even TRY to live up to the innovative phone and plans that they make "look" new and exciting

Amp'd Mobile has HORRIBLE Customer Service and does not fulfill promises

Kyocera Jet for Amp'd Mobile


You know how your computer freezes up and you have to reboot? Well, imagine doing that all the time. That is what you will have to do with this phone. Amp'd Mobile's customer service is a joke. If you even get through, because you are constantly...

There are no Pros

Too many to list

Kyocera Jet for Amp'd Mobile


With the exception of the ringtone, this phone sucks. Amp'd Live doesn't work, it freezes, Media Player won't play if you skip a song, picture/video quality are poor, no bluetooth.

customize ringtone

everything else
