Does the Kyocera Cadence have PDF reader for attachments because the LG Exalt does have attachments but just no PDF reader


Seems like the list of pros is getting bigger,

On Kyocera cadence you can easily go to home screen, send/view messages while phone calls,
You can open email attachment,
You can set up mobile hotspot without a plan.

Okay...so my good ol' Gousto 3 started making problems...first, the vibration was only doing a single vibrate (a problem pretty common with this model) and then started cracking of pieces...so I needed to get a new one. Well, they don't activate 3G phones anymore (and anyhow a million and a half dropped calls every day). And only the LG can be taken care by TAG, so the choice is pretty much no-choice, the LG Exalt LTE.

I'm on Verizon Prepaid and was always having a phone for under 15 bucks...and this baby costs a nice $150 and up! Until I found this eBay listing that after an offer and counter offer I got it for $115. Still x10 the price of my Gousto...

RIP 3G  :'( :'(

Honestly, I don’t know why anyone would need TAG to “take care of” the LG Exalt LTE. Only semi-practical internet use on it is as a hotspot (and that really drains the battery).

Any local TAG can do it, call them up before. Livingent released the method for it free of charge לטובת הכלל (was mentioned here https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=93301.15), see below a picture of it and announcements by one of the TAGs and Geder Filter (also Livingent):

Protecting the Basic 4G LTE Phone "LG Exalt VN220"


"Signal Faded; Call Was Lost" sounds familiar? This or similar messages is what most Verizon Basic Phone users are experiencing lately. Well, this is the beginning of the end of the 2G/3G era.

Users of most of the basic phones which rely on the 3G network have seen a significant amount of call drops and poor service throughout the nation. This is a direct result of the many dead spots of the old network which is no longer being maintained & slowly being faded out by the carriers, using the space for the 4G/5G generation. The issue is currently primarily with the Verizon Network, but will very soon follow with Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile.

While Verizon offers a number of Basic Phones which run on the 4G Network, some of them are not yet capable of being protected properly. Protections for all of the models are in different stages of development, which we will announce upon their release.

Today, TAG is happy to announce the release of a secure measure to protect the “LG Exalt VN220”. With this new method, a product released by the Livigent Filtering Firm, we are able to certify the phone up to the highest level of a secure Kosher Talk-Only Phone.

Purchase the phone at your favored retailer, activate the wireless service of your choice, then bring it to us to get it protected & sealed.

Please note: The protection of this device is permanent and non-reversible.

Let's stay safe together,

Can open all kind of attachments including PDFs (also Word and Excel), although not very useable size... It basically hs a full Mobisystems OfficeSuite in it (but I didn't find a way to open the app if not by opening a document already on the device and then going to the menu.)
Honestly, I don’t know why anyone would need TAG to “take care of” the LG Exalt LTE. Only semi-practical internet use on it is as a hotspot (and that really drains the battery).
Compared to a normal smartphone, that is. It has a fully functional web browser on which you can watch videos and what not. Not saying that it is the worsed possible device, but can still be pretty harmful if unblocked. (Of course, I'm only talking for the folks that in generally accepted that kind of approach to tech.)

Tried as well to figure out to open OfficeSuite without opening it as attachment, but once you there you can open new Excel sheets etc.

Seems like the list of pros is getting bigger,

On Kyocera cadence you can easily go to home screen, send/view messages while phone calls,
You can open email attachment,
You can set up mobile hotspot without a plan.

Kyocera vs LG Exalt

Kyocera pros:
T9 is kind of better, you get a full layout, vs switching by pressing the 0
You can open PDF files
Email attachment (Office Suite)
Hotspot without plan
Verizon cloud (sync contacts)
Texting while on phone call
Outside screen
Kyocera con:
No video recording/player

LG Exalt Pro:
Video recording/player
LG Exalt Con:
Switch words on T9 by pressing the 0 only
No PDF viewer
No Hotspot without plan
No Verizon cloud (sync contacts)
No Texting while on phone call (although there's workaround)
No Outside screen

Yes, see below on my Exalt (with the Livigent block.)

Two other pros for the Exalt is:
1) The internet blocking is more secure and cannot be factory reset (for whom this matters.)
2) Much much more comfortable UI and options (I have used both, and while it is very hard to describe it is just much better.)
