Summary: I had to send it back because the top of the screen didn't work at all. i had to use it in landscape if i wanted to mess with anything up top. otherwise, everything was great and exactly what i was expecting.
Summary: I bought this phone, new in box, from an ebay seller, phone worked fine for several months, then it would only light up with the "CAT" on the screen, and would never fully boot up. I tried re-setting it, pulling the battery, etc. but nothing would work. I wrote CAT phone co. and they wrote me back, and said "we are sorry, go back to your vendor," even though I explained that it was an ebay purchase.
Summary: The case etc is very chunky and seems hardwearing but the most annoying thing is when speaking 'in call' your cheek will touch the glass and mess up your icons etc. I had to reset mine after nearly every call. My phone has just developed a fault this last week, where the power button fails to work and I have to call my phone from another line in order to wake it up from standby. I assume if the battery ever dies, I will never be able to use it again.
Great until you do break it- Not an American phone.

Summary: Great phone, but two stars for when you do break it (face down on a pebble will do) the warranty will cover it- in the Czech Republic. Pros: A certain sort of stylish, shrugs off anything short of a direct strike to the screen, and there is what amounts to a two year road hazard warranty on the screen. Dropped it half a dozen times on New York City sidewalks without any sign of damage.
Excerpt: My company bought thee of these phones and have had them almost a year. At first i thought they would be the answer to my problems mainly of dropped and soaked phones. The b15 delivers in its shock resistance and water proof claims but thats about the only positive things i can reallistcly say. This phone otherwise is by far the worst phone i have ever had and i have a crew that would agree. Here are a few things that we hate about the b15.
Summary: screen easily broke when i knocked my phone off the arm of the couch
Pros: Looks nice, easy to use, not damaged easily, takes good pictures, can't select your own ringtones for contacts, memory space is less than 2Gb available not 4Gb available, before I could use some of the google apps I needed to create a gmail account
