Kyocera Rise

One of Kyocera’s most decent offerings in a while “rose” right on cue at Sprint, and, also on schedule, the phone is now available through Virgin Mobile. The Rise is this time around up for grabs for a slightly higher price, but you’ll be glad to know you don’t have to sign up any kind of contract up front to be able to buy it.

The total number of subscriptions of the seven biggest telcos in the United States has declined with 52,000.

Sprint’s eco-friendly entry-level LG Optimus Elite might not have been on top of many wish lists when it started selling a few weeks back, but since Virgin Mobile started offering the phone,... things seem to have changed a bit.
