Be careful as the plans are falsely advertised herein

Summary: The 30-Day Monthly Plans are NOT all accurate. I bought(2)of these phones based on their information that I could buy 750, 500 or 200 minute plans for $25/$30/$15 just exactly like any NET10 phone on the planet. It's advertised on NET10's web site for plans as low as $15/month and Amazon simply cut-and-pasted their information herein. When the phones arrived I then discover that I have to pay for "unlimited" minutes only and need $90 for service per month.
Summary: I bought this as a water resistant smart phone. I have the Casio G zOne to compare it to. This has none of the O-ring seals of the Casio, and none of the plugs to seal the charging port, headphone port, etc. I returned the one I purchased.
Summary: I signed up for Republic Wireless and got the Defy as my first smart phone. I was so excited, and this phone really impressed me with its abundance of great features. - Call quality. Since I switched to this phone my wife has commented on how hard it is to understand me and how muffled the calls are. It also drops a significant amount of calls, which is great because who wants to talk to their wife anyway? Am I right?
Summary: I am uniquely qualified to review this product, as I have3 owned THREE of them. The first one was purchased based on the claim that the phone is "rugged". It fell from my lap onto the floor 24 inches below, shattering the screen. It wasn't thrown, it wasn't stepped on- it fell. I purchased a new one, along with an otterbox case. This one lasted 24 hours before the micro USP port simply lost connection.
