I bought my Kyocera Switch Blade from Virgin mobile and the screens eventually us turn black on ya one day. Then I bought a Kyocera Switch Blade from US cellular and had it for about 4 months then the screen was messing up agae thingen my insurance biught me a new one && same thing. My sister has had hers for 18 months and no problem at all. I guess it's jus how well you take care of them.

Both Display Screens on Kyocera Strobe phone stopped working.


I would suggest taking it to the phone company and asking them for help. The phone might still be under warranty, and you might be able to get it fixed.
But if that doesn't help, you can often buy new display screens for phones and install them quite easily.

I would suggest looking on ebay for a screen for them.

Also, it may cost a little more, but you can buy a new phone exactly like this one for about 60 dollars on e-bay. This would be a last resort, but it is an option.

Hope this helps!

Kyocera strobe


sorry to say but you have to replace the screen as the cable that goes from the screen to the phone through the hinge has broke.so when you have it half open its making contact.

Why why why


The strobe can't seem to blue-tooth or download. I have a strobe, and four or five of my friends do too. No blue-toothing AT ALL can happen with these phones, it seems...not to or from other strobes either.

But you may find thier phones anyway.

Kyocera - Strobe


Open your phone to the qwerty keypad. In the righthand corner above and between the speaker and power/clear buttons, there should be a whiteish little button. Is anything obstructing it? Try pressing it gently a few times with a small phillips screwdriver or a ball-point pen top. GENTLY being the keyword! When you push that down, your outer screen should be lit up, and when you release it, it should light up the inside screen. Note that when your inside screen is lit, that your outer screen should light up blue-black-purple, and vice-versa.

If there is no obstruction that can be easily removed or fixed, I reccomend returning it to the retailer/company for a refund or new phone.

As a strobe owner, I understand your frustration. Worst phone I've had so far.
