Summary: bought this to replace the quantico I've carried in my pocket every day for the past few years. my phones lead a VERY hard life and the quantico is the only one that has lasted more than a year. even compared to other military phones, this one is the best there is. call reception is excellent, battery life great, features are adequate (it isn't a smartphone, just the basics) and durability is off the charts.
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.
Summary: After my 2-year-old son dropped two of my previous cell phones in my morning coffee, I realized I needed something more durable than a simple "penny-phone." I read some reviews and decided, "what better than a military-grade, waterproof phone?" I have only had the phone for a few days, but my husband has the same phones in their squad cars at the police department. Now I can drink my coffee without the fear of losing a phone in the process!
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!
