The Rise can interface with the USB port of another display, tv, or computer. PC Connection is a system setting that allows use for media transfer or as a mass storage device even to a smart tv or display (with a media player or file manager); select your connection type to control the operation & then select your media. As provided the Rise doesn't seem to interface with HDMI or stream content to another display even using the USB connection. I've seen specs from other providers (Sprint) indicating the Rise is HotSpot capable although with VM that does not seem possible as provided out of the box; yet other users suggest an app FoxFi to enable HotSpot capability that may allow streaming content but I haven't attempted that yet. More info provided on the particular Ask & Answer sections. Hope this helps & I'll try to determine other capabilities as well as possible options.

You can absolutely keep your current number.
From the "Manage My Account" you can swap phones.
Scroll halfway down the page til you see "I want to..." on the right hand side.
There's an option to "Swap Phones."
Click on it, and viola, a step by step process is initiated.

Yes you can. It's consider a Android phone so you can download chat apps on it as much as you want. I suggest the Facebook app for that works the best.

Optimus Elite vs Kyocera Rise
Which one is better?

answer 1
I say the Rise is better because it has the most advanced Android platform, the 1GB processor, the touchscreen, the QWERTY keyboard, and the package comes with a 2GB card included so you can download apps and music and other stuff! So the Rise is better.

The slide out qwerty keyboard does not have a smiley button. However, to add a smiley while texting with the physical keyboard, you can press the lower right button on the front of the phone (the icon that looks like 3 vertical dots), and it will give you the option of inserting one.

It should! But I have seen people complain about getting charged. They can only charge you if you have money in your account.

Yes, Adobe Flash Player (Air, Reader, ...) & other standalone FLV players such as Moai can operate fine. So far the stock browser & multimedia apps have performed great. YouTube operates in the browser or as an app. I'm preparing to install another browser but don't expect trouble. Apps are available from the Google Play Store. Hope this helps & check again later in case I add more info.

DO NOT GET THE WILDFIRE! I got it last year on black Friday thinking it was gonna be awesome....and it wasn't. The internal memory is less than 200 mb. With such limited space, you can hardly download anything - even if you move apps to your SD Card (because an app never moves 100%). It also comes with a lot of useless apps that cannot be removed from the phone. My space was so limited that I was clearing cahes and data at least twice a day just to look at my photos. I felt like I was trapped!

With the rise, you get 1gb of internal memory to work with and the ability to remove apps you dont use, plus, you can type on the touch screen or use the slide out qwerty keyboard. I just got the rise 2 days ago...but so far I feel like I can breathe easier! The speaker is pretty awesome too. I'm still playing with it and learning about it...but so far I am very happy with it.
