Summary: This phone is for my husband who likes things to last forever. After extensive searching, this phone met all of his requirements. It is a sturdy phone that is simple to use. Battery life is VERY good, 4 days without needing to charge. Reception is good, voices sound clear. Texting is a little tedious because it doesn't have a Querty keyboard. This is mostly a talk phone. The flashlight is bright.
Durable,waterproof,shockproof,long battery,reg size SIM,Very Good Phone!

Summary: Love it. Battery life is 1 week or more! Dropped it a couple of times on concrete getting in and out of the car with no damage. Works with my ATT go-phone SIM card. I had to call ATT & get them to unlock the SIM card. The phone is unlocked when you get it. I will have to call ATT again to get the network settings for web access. This is a real good phone. It has email feature, web feature with java, sms messages, send pictures etc.
Summary: Works great on AT&T, however you cannot send pictures via text and the support at the AT&T store is nothing but worthless. They completely refuse to even look at the phone because is not one they carry (they don't care that you are a customer of more than 15 years) they carry other so called sturdy phones, but my son who has used them (He works outdoors) say they have been unreliable, we found this one through people's reviews and so far has been great.
Summary: I was looking for a inexpensive replacement phone that was rugged and had many features. This phone hit the mark without a doubt. It isn't a smart phone but it does everything well without the worry of breaking it. As far as I can see it can do everything my old iphone can with the exception of wifi.
Summary: Was deciding between a $60 Nokia phone and this to use as a temp phone till I could get back into a smartphone. Went with this and thought I'd use it as a backup or for camping/swimming activities. As far as that goes the phone makes me confident that it could handle drops and water. I haven't dunked it in water yet but there are plenty of videos of people doing that on youtube. The software however leaves me frustrated daily.
Summary: After years of hating the cell phones I've owned, along comes the Samsung GT-B2710 and I'm in love. Set-up was super easy and fast. Very intuitive, which a tech-challenged person like me appreciates. The phone arrived fully-charged. And then I saw something I've never seen on my old AT&T phone: bars! My house is pretty much a dead zone for tower signals, but this new phone picked up the signal and held it.
This phone rocks on a little, tiny island in Greece!!! UPDATE!!
