Summary: This phone rocks. I've had 2 separate phones (this same model) over the past 8 years. One was dropped in a can of primer (paint) and sunk to the bottom, and still continued to work for years after. Great for people who tend to abuse their phone.
Summary: The Barrage is an excellant basic phone. This is the second one I have owned. The first lastted 8 yrars and was only retired because the rubber seals around the side buttons deteriorated to where the phone could not be waterproof any longer. It was still fully funcional and providing excellant service at the time of retirement. I have used the Barrage with an extended battery since day one of the original purchase.
Great phone if all you need is a basic talk and text phone

Summary: No smart phone or camera phone allowed at my job. this phone is perfect for my work. it is rugged and durable. only draw back is the text feature since there is no qwerty keyboard or touch screen have to text using just the keys on the keypad.
Summary: we were very happy to receive this set, we will keep you in mind if I need another. we could have return our other phone to our insurance but I think he feels that because he has the v860 in house now that he can change his phone when his ready. We did not activate it yet so hopefully it will be okay when we do so, if not well not your fault.
