I love my Cyclops

By 

from Lacey, WA

Comments about Kyocera - Cyclops Cell Phone:

I have had my Cyclops for more than two years and it is still going strong! I started using Virgin Mobile about 5 years ago because I was afraid my kids would rack up some huge cellphone bills. Well, two of them have moved on to their own homes but my youngest and I still use VM.

This is a great little camera phone. It takes decent pictures and I have had no problems with it at all.

The only problem is that while texting, it sometimes skips or jumps backwards but that doesn't happen very often.

A good phone, until it died.

By 

from Ypsilanti, MI

Comments about Kyocera - Cyclops Cell Phone:

This was my first phone. I loved it greatly. Outside of the fact that the battery sucked and I had to charge it all the time, it was great. It had all the features I needed and wanted. You could feel that phone vibrating anywhere, even could hear it if it was sitting on a table or the couch, it was that loud. It's a very sleek looking phone and you could customize it very easily. There's so many choices with it. It also had a good amount of memory so I could download a ton of ringtones and a few different games onto it. It also had some great extras like a timer, my new phone doesn't have one and I can't say how much I miss it. The camera also took some good quality pictures, you could even change it to different sizes as well. My phone lasted about a year before one call from 'Unavailable' took it out. (The screen went cloudy and I couldn't use it after that.) Despite that I would really recommend this phone, it was very good.

Cute flip phone!

By 

from Orcutt, CA

Comments about Kyocera - Cyclops Cell Phone:

The Kyocera K325 Cyclops is a 1.3 megapixel camera flip phone provided by Virgin Mobile. If you are interested in a prepaid phone with either by-the-minute or monthly plans, Virgin Mobile's Cyclops would be a good buy. This isn't the most up-to-date phone available right now, so don't expect to get a QWERTY keyboard or even Bluetooth with this phone. But if you're on a budget, this would be a great choice. Some highlights: it does take and send pictures. It does provide downloadable games, ringtones, and wallpapers. It has a calendar, stopwatch, and calculator. So although this isn't quite as advanced as other phones available, it is still practical and fun to use. The Cyclops gets its name from its unique design. The camera lens is located directly above its vertical display panel. The orange trim around these two features accentuate this off-white phone, giving it a cyclops-like appearance. Refer to the photo provided to get a better look.

The Kyocera Cyclops is a decent phone for the money.

By 

from Jamaica, NY

Comments about Kyocera - Cyclops Cell Phone:

I bought the Cyclops in 2008 as a second cell phone because my two children had Virgin Mobile service which cost a lot less than my previous cell phone service.  I actually like to use the mobile e-mail and the mobile web on the Cyclops. This is not a phone for technophiles.  The Cyclops' screen is small compared to the newer phones, and the camera is not that great, but if you're looking for a decent, inexpensive phone that call do a little of everything, this is the phone.  This phone only comes with three demo games, so you have to buy the full version of any game you want on this phone.  It has a pretty decent address book feature where you can add photos of the people in your book.  You can also visit the Virgin Mobile website to listen to real music ringtones before you buy them.  They offer a great selection of ringtones, both current and older songs.  I like to use the phone when I'm traveling, and I need a local restaurant or taxi phone number.  I simply go online to a search engine, find the number, and make the phone call.  Once I'm finished with the phone call, the Cyclops returns to the website I was viewing.  A very decent phone if you don't need the lastest style.

good for a py as you go

By 

from Freeland, PA

Comments about Kyocera - Cyclops Cell Phone:

The Cyclops Vigin Mobile cell phone is an older model but works just fine. I do not get service in some area, mostly grocery stores but all in all I never had a problem. I like the fact that I do not have a monthly bill. I do not use it as a main phone basicly it is just to comunicate with my family members when I am not home.  It has the capabilty to take pictures and they are ok for what I need.  I do send some text mesages but not many and the price per text message isn't a real lot per text.  I like the fact that you can top up on line and it is activated with in minutes. Virgin Mobile also sends me a text to let me know my minutes are low so I never run out. They also have specials if you top up for 20.00 you get 30.00 for the price of twenty.  You can also download ring tones that do not cost a lot of money.  I also like the fact that if you recommend someone and they purchase a Virgin Mobile phone They get free minutes and you do as well. I would and have recommended a Virgin Mobile phone

Perfect for the person who doesn't want to spend to much.

By 

from Baldwin City, KS

Comments about Kyocera - Cyclops Cell Phone:

This phone has taken numerous beatings and been drop-kicked several times, skidding across rough parking lots. I've had it for 2 years now, and the only trouble I've had with it is that occasionally the screen freezes up and turns white. This is easily fixed by pulling out and putting back in the battery with no harm done. It has a camera with very nice resolution, slightly inset into the phone to ensure that it is not easily scratched. The keys are raised for ease in texting. Overall, it is a durable, well-made phone, and I would highly recommend it.

I am so surprised at how much I like this cell phone.

By 

from Texarkana, TX

Comments about Kyocera - Cyclops Cell Phone:

When I ordered Kyocera-Red Cyclops, I did not think it was going to be such a great purchase.  I bought it because there was a promotion and my other cell phone died on me.  I needed a cell phone very quickly, so I went to my account at virgin mobile and within 3 days, the phone was delivered to me (no shipping fee).  I was very impressed from the moment I took it out of the box.  I was surprised that it looked so nice and it has a lot of features that my previous phone did not have.  The only thing that would liketo see in the future with Virgin mobile, is to that this phone last longer than the previous 5 phones I have had in the past 6 years.   all in all I can say I made a really good choice purchasing my phone.

great little phone

By 

from Memphis, TN

Comments about Kyocera - Cyclops Cell Phone:

I got this phone free with my service contract. The charger is delicate and temprimental, but the phone has worked great. Excellent features -- including camera -- for a low price. Very compact flip style.

This is the prepaid way to go!

By 

from Burbank, IL

Comments about Kyocera - Cyclops Cell Phone:

This phone is perfect for someone who doesn't want to pay every month. The camera is fine and its company only makes you pay every 3 months, so that's convenient. I have this phone for about 4 months now myself and it hasn't failed me.
