This phone...we have been through hell and back.
22 February 2013
Summary: I had this phone for about 3 1/2 years before it finally gave way to a tomahawk as did my old blackberry world edition...It's battery life was fantastic, I am an avid phone user for various reasons and under constant use, it's battery life would be about a week. It's Idle life? Well, after the tomahawk hit it, only its inner screen had stopped working, Outer screen and everything else still worked flawlessly.
Pros: I can go on forever, It's very practical if you are always outdoors and pushing the limit of everything like me.
Summary: If you are one of the few who do not want a smart phone and desire a phone almost indestructible, this is for you. Personally I got it so I could simply put it in my life vest when kayaking or jet skiing. Great for texting. Bulky obviously.
Pros: waterproof., rugged., ease of use., battery life - (I charge maybe once every 2 weeks), Keyboard - (I love this feature).
Cons: tiny screen, you have to scroll heavily online., Bulky
Pros: Great for people who break phones easily and good for calls.
Cons: The messaging just flat out sucks. I have ordered several new phones and each has the same issues. First, it restarts when messaging 6 times a day and fails to send a message another 20 times a day on average. Not worth the money if you message a lot
Summary: I used to like this phone. Seemed indestructible and i liked the easy to use keyboard. Longish story short, I jumped in a pool with my "indestructible" brigade, and it decided that after over a year of complete hydrophillic behavior it would act like any other electronic device would under water. In spite of this, ive read many reviews and i seem to be the only person with a semi-waterproof brigade. Lucky me..
Pros: Waterproof most of the time., Nice Keyboard, fast texting.
Cons: Waterproof most of the time., Slow and glitchy when using the outside keys., Bad sound quality when calling., Large, women will frequently mistake it for a walkey-talkey..
