Excerpt: You can drop it and kick it when you get upset because the features, such as Bluetooth, the camera and wireless emergency alerts, either don't work or when they do, they cause this device to have trouble. Calls are loud but not clear, Bluetooth also fails to recognize most non-Motorola devices (with a few exceptions from Plantronics, Panasonic and Sony), the camera can't even take a good photo, the phone is SLOW, and the phone really does need to go to the gym...
Summary: I purchased this phone because it has much better reception in my home, especially in my basement office. Our cell reception is poor here because we are in a low valley, even though near towers. My last 3 cell phones have had the same problem. While it is out of production it works better than newer cell phones. I actually have two similar phones for business and personal. It is easier to hold and open instead of small polished phones.
Summary: So far I am pleased with it. A better phone than the Razar I replaced it with. The battery stays charged longer. Too bad U S Cellular no longer carry them. I do not need a smart phone as this does everything I need it to do. Not a perfect phone but one I would buy again.
The Quantico is a SUPER phone all they way around!

Summary: The Motorola Quantico is an EXCELLENT military spec. phone that is basic, but VERY durable. The texting is easy on it and it withstands a lot of "dropping, kicking, etc." and keeps on working. It's not a smart phone so that's the only reason I gave it a 4/5 on features, because the features it does have work well also. This is a great phone and the Kyocera that U.S. Cellular says is its replacement is CRAP; don't waste your money!
Summary: I wanted one of these since they came out. Finally bought a nice used one after my penny phone failed to provide what I needed. The Quantico gives me confidence that it will work when/if I need it. Signal is above average and it's easy to hear. Battery life is only average and there doesn't seem to be much tapering off of battery level. It just goes from OK to low battery in one call.
Summary: This is an extremely rugged phone with enough features to satisfy my needs. I ordered a red rubberized cover so that if it dropped or lost it would be easy to see because of the color. I am still discovering some of it's unique features. I once owned an AT&T Tundra vr6 phone which was very similar to this phone and also made by Motorola. These phones are not fancy, but they just "KEEP ON TICKING".
