Summary: Our home location has marginal cell phone coverage from all carriers. However, for 10 years I carried a Nokia for business as it was the only phone I tried that works in the home. When it finally broke I tried an Apple smart phone. It was not as good as the Nokia's reception, but it did work marginally in the home. I got the iphone wet and had to trash it. I replaced it with a Samsung Rugby 3 that I liked better than any other I tried.
Summary: I initially had difficulty charging battery and getting phone to work. I had ordered another, spare, battery and that worked a little better. Through Amazon, I contacted supplier and asked for a replacement battery since original couldn't be charged, Supplier sent a new phone, AC charger and battery. Amazing!! It all works well now.
