Starting today, at Target (see flyer), the Kyocera Hydro Android 3G phone will be at $9.99 (Reg. 59.99). I know previous deals from Radioshack have hit the front page.

For more details, http://www.target.com/p/boost-kyo...A-14782670

Besides the phone, this can be used for other uses (see http://slickdeals.net/f/6559288-kyocera-hydro-prepaid-smart-phone-9-99-at-target-b-m-70-off)

Cheers!

Don't name it Boost Kyocera Hydro. Call it Kyocera Hydro (or Sprint Smart Phone). Smilie Yes, there is risk involved.

asking if smart phones have wifi is like asking if your new cars come with tires.

Does this phone have wifi? It isn't listed on the site I found specs for it.

Under R+ account, in "Device Details" it will automatically labeled "Boost xxx yyy". No way to change it. Started recently after R+ updated their phone database.

I see, so this phone will likely not work on R+. I was able to name it anything I like. Thanks for the info.

No, page plus runs on Verizon. You would have to flash this phone.

I got one in december (Target would only let me buy one). It crashes every now and then. Battery time is not even a day and sometimes it doesn´t charge. I have to take out the battery a few times until it finally starts charging. But it´s acceptable as a spare phone if you´re not picky.

Is it possible to change the ESN on these phones? I have a sprint phone with a broken screen I want to transfer the ESN over. I have Ring+ but I don't want to risk using the Boost ESN that comes with the Hydro.

I'm gonna try to pick this up tomorrow just to use with Perk TV... Should pay for itself within a couple days.
Good luck with that. Many people saying PerkTV will run 24/7 on Android are lying to get referrals (at least on reddit). A lot of people can only have it run a couple hours before it crashes or stops playing videos. It certainly won't be running 24/7, especially on it's slow hardware. I've tried a SGS II and EVO 3D (both dual-core phones), neither could run it more than a couple hours without stopping; one on 4.4 and the other on 4.1.

But if you don't mind checking the phone every hour or 2 to keep it running, maybe it'll pay off quick. At that rate, ~$0.04-0.05/hour.. it's basically getting paid $0.10 to spend 15 seconds restarting the app, playing a video, etc. Not worth the time for most people.

Now from what I've seen, it's much more likely to run PerkTV 24/7 on an iDevice, without having to constantly restart the app or manually start a video.

Thanks OP. I will grab a few.
Not all Targets will allow folks to buy "a few". Im sure they are well aware of how many resellers will be in the stores first thing in the morning, or even this evening nod

ESN follows the phone for its life.
