No Surprises

Stephen, J&R
27 August 2010
  • Summary: Works fine as a durable feature phone. Music player, camera, etc. are mediocre but acceptable. The biggest problem is opening the phone to get access to the battery, SIM card, and microSD card; it is quite a challenge. Getting photos off the phone or music onto the phone requires removing the microSD card, so don't plan on doing that too often.
  • Pros: Durable Design, Great Battery Life
  • Cons: Difficult To Open

  • Summary: "i have had this phone for about a year now and have dropped in in water number of times and yes it still works great but the thing i am have problems with is the bluetooth on it, when i yours any handfree kit the phone will turn itselfs off and back on when i make a call, have taken it back a number of times but i am up to about 4 phones now but they all do the same so have given up on the bluetooth part because you can't have it all.

It does ring in the water

Tomek, J&R

  • Summary: This is a really solid phone, but there is a major problem with samsung software. So if you think about syncing your phone with a pc, you might as well forget about it. Same applies to loading music and ringtones through a pc. But if you don't care about that, and you are an outdoors person - you'll love that phone!
  • Pros: Durable Design, Great Battery Life

Rock Solid Subpar Phone

Skipper Da Bio, J&R
21 January 2010
  • Summary: The Good - This phone is very durable, I have owned it for a month now and have rinsed it off with water have also done my fair share of dropping it and what not. Battery life is good as well. The Bad - The phone I used before this was a Nokia E51 and this phone is a step down as far as call quality and reception go. I figure this is due to it's rugged design which the Nokia was not.
  • Pros: Charges Quickly, Durable Design, Flashlight, Great Battery Life, Waterproof
  • Cons: Subpar Reception, Very poor Microphone

samsung mobile

F. N. URE, Amazon

  • Summary: I needed another mobile as my smart phone was with vodafone and I couldn't get reception at my new address so I bought this phone with a t-mobile sim. It's fine for basic use and the handset is sturdy but light. Some things like texting and adding contacts aren't as straightforward as with other phones I've had. Very good battery.

Still going strong after 3 1/2 years. Does what it says on the box!

Sett, Samsung

  • Summary: I bought my SIM free B2100 3 1/2 years ago. I needed a good reliable rugged phone, since, at the time, I was heavily involved with Search & Rescue in the South West. Dartmoor can be a most inhospitable place at 3am in the middle of winter! After another soaking while out on the moor this weekend, the phone has just emerged from the washing machine with my (now) clean running kit. Apart from a nice clean case and keypad, phone is fully functional!

The best phone I've ever had

FordCapriForEver, Samsung
20 February 2013
  • Summary: This isn't a smart phone, so obviously most of your friends will at first brag about theirs and try to convince you it's old-fashioned and rubbish. One of mine actually put his iPhone in my face, playing a clip from Indiana Jones ("It belongs in a museum!!"), which admittedly I did find rather funny... But if you think about it, a phone is for making calls and sending texts on the go...

  • Summary: Great phone for outdoors or hard use. Mine went through a hot wash cycle (by accident!) and came out working perfectly and smelling very nice too.

Phone of steel

The Texas Sheep Rancher, Samsung
18 March 2012
  • Summary: This phone has performed exactly like i wanted it to. It has been wet, stepped on, thrown, and scratched. in one particular circumstance a 250 lb sheep stepped on it and it took me 10 minutes to find it because of the depth it was shoved into the mud. This is not a smart phone but a basic phone, i can operate it easily and without issues. It is much like a phone built into an otterbox.

Never Fails

Satancom, Samsung

  • Summary: This phone has lasted me two years, its a bit battered now but continues to work regardless. This includes daily use in a motor garage, subject to camping trips and being used in horrific weather. I have dropped this in many pints for a laugh, launched it as far as I could accross a car park and even had someone stamp on it when I said it was indestructable... They were impressed, I was relived when it was still working fine afterwards.
