Excerpt: I work in construction; yes this is the style, ruggedness, and sturdiness of phone I wanted. That said, I have owned this phone for less than three days and already have made several "Pocket calls". I have put this phone in my pocket, in my belt pouch, and on the dash of my truck and repeatedly hit the top button for speaker. I recalls the last call and I re-call the last number. I have told my wife that I am going to change carriers as well as return his phone.
Excerpt: Just purchased 5 of these for work. One for myself and I replaced 2 i580's and was going to use the other 2 as spares. But before the end of the week both i680 were brought back to me. They wanted their i580's back due to dropped signals and poor reception. The phones were used in 3 different tower areas and experienced the same problem. Suspect it's due to the unit having an internal antenna. Sound familiar, maybe I should find some duct tape.
Summary: Coolio has this phone I think. Pretty cool looking phone, but one question, does it work with straight talk wireless from Walmart. As stragiht talk is the best value phone on the market, I can not use a phone that does not work with straight talk.
