1. This software was not pushed/forced out to our fleet of phones. Therefore its ineffective. We have approximately 80 duramax phones.
2. The phones that were manually updated showed no improvement with Sprint Direct connect. No improvement with missed called. Not much improvement overall, other than a false expectation that the phone is going to somehow work better by the users.
In addition to this, the delay of the 1X coverage release is only hurting this phone and the Sprint Direct connect reputation.
I guess there was a reason why Motorola didn't want to make a phone for the Sprint Direct connect Network Vision. Kyocera certainly didn't live up to the expectations that Motorola left behind.
Just got this phone today. Had been pushed for months to upgrade to the indestructable, 10 times better than I680, Kyocera Duramax.
In less tha 30 minutes we knew that this phone fell horribly short of previous Motorola phones, especially the I680. Now 5 hours into owning it we realize just how dissappointing it is.
Audio is too crisp and borderlines on scratchy. DC calls are lost lid key.
DC key seems to hang up and freeze. Signal strength and network strength are horrible.
Very disappointed and feeling very deceived by Sprint and the local wireless store that services our company.
Sprint is proud to have been named to The Civic 50, an annual survey of America?s most community-minded companies.
