I should be recieving my Rise Tuesday, it's Saturday now. 'Will be my first smart phone. 'Have been building desktop PCs for over decade.
So, I've been reading a lot of reviews/previews for this phone. One review, page 6 or 7 I believe... Review: Kyocera Rise for Sprint : Camera (Phone Scoop)
quotes... "The Rise doesn't have autofocus nor touch-to-focus, so it takes pictures fairly fast."
This phone seems almost too good to be true, for me. My main reason for getting it (well, besides replacing my gameboyadvance) is, to replace my dialup internet connection for my home PC. 'Have been using a dumb-phone on Virgin Mobile's net for about 6-7 yrs...they seem like at least a decent company to work with...albeit no 4G where I live.
So, the day I recieve delivery, and have the battery charged up...I'm gonna walk 4-5 blocks to near my downtown, and a free hotspot area. Then, I'll be looking into paying the $35/mo for the...uhm...unlimited data plan...then, the extra $15/mo for the ability to connect my home PC to this phone's connection.
A report on that later into the/an appropriate thread.
'Nice to see others interest in this phone. Have a great day.
