I recently had to buy a new cell phone because my Samsung was so outdated that I couldn't find any store that carried batteries for it. I noticed that there is no way to tell when the Rally battery is being deleted nor by how much, and when it needs to be recharged. I used to charge my old phone every other day or so just to ensure I would have a fully charged phone handy but with this new one, there is no indication of how much battery power is left. Is anyone else familiar with the Kyocera Rally phone and have you had the same problem?

I have a Rally. Unless your is different, the battery indicator on mine is in the very top right corner of the screen, to the right of the time display. The "box" is all blue when charged. It slowly turns black while discharging, and red if really low. It sort of blinks while recharging.

See page 5 of the manual at this webpage for more info

The battery icon in the upper-right corner
of the screen tells you whether the phone
is:
- Charging (the icon is animated)
- Partially charged
- Fully charged

Default Kyocera Rally

Thanks for your reply, Reed. How do you like your Kyocera Rally? I don't like it as much as the Samsung I had. What would you say are the pluses and minuses of the Rally?

I bought mine to replace a similar 7 year old Nokia 6030 that did not have Bluetooth or camera. Did not want a smartphone, not touch screen, not flip style. Did not want to spend a lot of money. Its on a T-Mo prepaid plan. I make/get maybe 2 calls a month. No texting, etc.

I first tried a BLU Tank II http://www.bluproducts.com/index.php/tank It would not pair up with my car's Bluetooth despite many attempts, and calls to BLU. And speaker audio quality was poor. At the time the Rally was not available.

Some time later I spotted the new Rally on T-Mo's website. So got one thru BestBuy on-line. Bluetooth paired up on first try. Still learning all its capabilities. Camera leaves some to be desired. Only 0.3 megapixel (!), no flash, and needs good light for decent pic. Transferring pic to PC a bit cumbersome. Add-on microSD Card cost more than the phone !!

ISTM for the price ($15) it does what I need/want quite well.
