    Got this phone earlier this week and so far it's been great!

    **Make sure to immediately set updates to manual in the Google play store and don't upgrade anything google until Google fixes an issue they caused with a recent update!!**

    We're really loving this phone! It's a good solid device for the price and actually is much better than the S2 it's replacing. Much snappier performance, longer battery life, and wireless charging (powermat not qi).

    Loving that it's impact and water resistant for my teenager!!

    If I buy a Hydro will it come with this fix already applied?

    Probably not, because this is a Kyocera issue not a FreedomPop one. However It would be a good idea if they did. I can't confirm this but I've been told devices still running 4.3 doesn't have the crash issue for the following apps:hangouts, gmail, youtube, drive, music, and android pay. 4.4 however does have it and I can confirm that, since I've been running 4.4 since day one.

    If you are having trouble with the FreedomPop messaging app registering, always try uninstalling it and then reinstalling it. If that doesn't work download push notification fixer (no root) from the play store. make sure both intervals are set to 5 minutes and click apply.

    @Ryan Radford 2

    So if the phone they sent is running 4.3 it should be fine as long as the user doesn't upgrade to 4.4?

    Again, I don't have a 4.3 version of the icon to verify. I have four of these I don't need anymore. I updated all of my devices from day one.

    Oh hey my newbie tag is back, it disappeared for awhile. Can't say I missed it.

    Is there a valid path to get the Hydro to Android V5.0.1?
  • Robert ZimmermanRobert Zimmerman Posts: 95FreedomPop Newbie
    @James_in_Utah , no, there is currently not a way to upgrade past KitKat 4.4.2. There is also no custom ROM development going on because the phone has a locked bootloader.
