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

Exalt syncs contacts IIRC.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Correct.
Though, can said contact syncing (or transfer) be done without a Verizon account (trying to use on MVNO)?

Red pocket works on all 4 carriers. You have to know if itís red pocket Verizon, sprint, T-Mobile or att.

And if you are using a flip phone you probably donít use data. Then you have better options
The cheapest talk and text plan that I know of are
On the Verizon network u.s.mobile totals ~ $14
On the sprint network  tello ~ $10
On the AT&T network freeUp $10
On the T-Mobile network ultra mobile ~ $ 12
I wrote ~ because of the taxes vary from state to state
This plan requires restarting after every 2000 minutes used - in middle of the month, no?

No. My son just got it. That's their price for unlimited talk and text monthly.

You are correct. A quick online chat fixes that issue.

Did U.S. Mobile just change all their plans?
