Freedompop Kyocera Hydro Icon in Boot Loop
I have Kyocera Hydro Icon that I purchased in July 2015, and since this weekend it is in a boot loop, start screen shows "powered by android" then vibrate and repeat. I have tried to factory reset but no success. Once in maybe 20 attempts it will boot up, but restart within a few min and back to boot looping. Curiously the only time it boots properly is when it is plugged into a power supply.
The device used to gets a firmware upgrade, but it never installed correctly. So I always cancel it.
1) Has anyone seen this issue and knows a fix. Please share.
2) If not: What is the best cheap LTE replacement for this phone. I used it exclusively as a car GPS.
