Boost Mobile’s Sanyo Incognito by Kyocera is QWERTY-licious

Boost Mobile today unveiled their first clamshell device, the Sanyo Incognito by Kyocera. At a price of $129.99, the Incognito will be available on Boost’s new Monthly Unlimited plan on Sprint’s 3G CDMA network.

The interesting design of the phone is not the clamshell formfactor, but the mirrored keypad that glows backed by an OLED display. It has a full internal QWERTY keyboard, 2.6-inch display, 2 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, GPS and MicroSD card support for up to 16GB.

The $129.99 price is with no-contract and a $50 a month package (excluding taxes) and free shipping from www.boostmobile.com. Best Buy, RadioShack, Target and Walmart will get it in the next few weeks.

    okaee so i got this phonee a few days ago for my birthday and its not all that , the screen sometimes freezes for no reason and it sometimes take for ever to get msg’s and sometimes people dnt even receive the msg you sent until a day later or not at all , this phone is not the business , personally i wouldn’t recommend it , but the internet works great , the picture msg’n is slow as crapp and the touch screen part in the front is annoying, sometimes ill be on the phone and it will hang up b/c my face its the end button withh me even knw’n and i prss the wrong numbers sometimess. im really thinking abt getting a seek by boostmobile or either bcak to verizon !

  7. austin says:

  8. Rikki says:

    I dont receive all of my calls, people will ask me why I dont answer the phone, but it never rang on my end. I get voicemails from people saying why didnt you answer too!! this sucks. my friend sat right in front of me and called me and my phone didnt ring, it went to voicemail. And i had all bars! the sprint network sucks im getting simple mobile tomorrow!

    I`ve had this phone for about a month now , and I`m not going to lie .. It isn`t the BEST phone in the world . It sometimes freezes for no reason , although I will admit the Youtube has pretty good quality . I personally don`t like the Internet that is already on here so I downloaded Opera Mini ; I suggest you do that too , because Opera Mini is twice as fast and even though it takes some time to get used to , it will all be worth it . The touchscreen front is not that good either , sometimes it won`t work when I press a number . It is a mirror , so that`s a good thing ! Um , I like the keyboard . And the camera on here is pretty good . The calling is average . Anything else you want to know I`m glad to help :) .

  15. DAVID says:

    should i buy this phone?i really want it.i have$80.00 right now

  16. Nades says:

    I’m a Boost Mobile Authorized dealer in Brooklyn NY. We have 5 stores, and since these phones came out, we have not received even 1 for any of our stores. Its horrible business, because, as per our dealer agreements, we HAVE to post up all the advertisements (Posters, flyers etc) of this Incognito, even BEFORE they came out, We’ve had to advertise-advertise-advertise! And have had customers coming in like crazy every day, day after day, asking, basically BEGGING for this phone, and even offering to pay up front and wait until we get them in stock. We have had so many ANGRY customers also bcuz they just dont understand the way it works. Boost has really screwed their dealers on this one. But, I’ll tell you something, It really doesn’t live up to all the “hype”.. and “hype” is the correct term.. Think about it, Advertised for $129.99, but nobody has them in stock – making them the “elusive best thing out there” and everybody HAS to have it.. so they pay up to $200. for it…. Supply & Demand at it’s very best…

    • Jas says:

      does any of the boost mobile phones work were if you go one place you get service an you go another place an you get no service at all also an what about text messages??

  17. Tyler says:

    ^^^ and yes get extended warranty…just in case….you never know….you would rather be safe than sorry:)

  18. Tyler says:

    everywhere by me has it……it has never been sold out lol…ever store has it in stock…if you walk in you will see like the front shelf in every store full of them…but never yet have they sold out for some reason…wierd..

  19. this phone is stoked and this is my next one that i am getting

  20. Sandy says:

    I also looked everywhere and everyone kept telling me they were on back order i finally called Radio Shack and they told me the just got a shipment 3 days ago and had 1 left they held that one for me for 5 hours until i got there…i still haven’t opened it because I’m thinkn about taking it back to get the extended warranty on it for $30 has anyone had any problems yet with this phone? would u recommend me getting the extended warranty…

  21. CriticalThinker says:

    OK, I admit it – I am an old fart. Yet, I LOVE this phone. I rarely text. Yet, compose just one email or enter just one URL into the browser and you appreciate the design.

    Minor problem is that my stubby old fingers have trouble honing in on the numbers on the outer screen. I’m sure that I will adapt to new tricks ;-)

  22. Melina says:

  28. eddie says:

    they are selling for $210 on Ebay like hotcakes! conspiracy?

  29. Just had a guy at Shack tell me there’s some kind of problem with these and they stopped making them, perhaps to fix it and that nobody can get them.

    Can anybody confirm? Or was this f’er just trying to upsell me to a crackberry?

  30. Mr Phone says:

    Yeah I had this phone for a week now, and it was an awesome week. Personal rating~5 stars…Its more for those who love to text and socialize. They have them everywhere in Connecticut. I never saw a store out of stock…=]

  47. bunny says:

    This phone is completely sold out in LA. I have been looking for just over a week now. To make things that much worse, there are huge billboards and signs on the sides of buses advertising it. I see this phone everywhere I go, taunting me.

  50. LadyTeeForever says:

    Does anyone know if you get to keep your same # for this phone, or do you have to get a new one. When I tried to change over to the clutch, they told me that I would have to get a new #. Would a new # be needed because of a chirp feature on your phone???
