Summary: Downgrading from a smart phone to this, I'm going to feel the loss, however, it does the job. Minor, annoying things, like the screen won't stay in during a call so that you can mash numbers (as is pretty standard for calls to anything but a friend these days), and the flash on the camera doesn't work... If I take away my spoiled rotten, it's actually a good phone and serves the purpose I purchased it for. Timely delivery. Thank you.
Summary: The phone was advertised as new. When it came. It looked OK, not new, but looked packaged well. When we plugged it in there was no response from the phone. We couldn't even charge it up. The company did treat me well though. I was able to get my card refunded and when I complained about paying the postage for its return they even paid for the return postage.
great phone for the money if you are looking for a phone to call and text.

Summary: Overall this was a great phone. We had trouble with two parts not working; My music and Mobile Im did not want to load and would freeze the phone. However everything else on this phone worked great. Call quality was good and the keyboard was easy to use. If you do not need to use this phone for music or mobile im such as aim then I do recommend this phone.
Excerpt: I got my samsung rogue in the beginning of january 2011. It started to be a pain at the end of march. It's now April and i neeeeeeeeeed to get rid of it. It's sad, I was truly excited for this phone. Right off the bat, the battery had a terrible charge, and they don't make an extra battery pack for the phone. It doesn't pick up on signal when someone next to you has it. The battery cover is a huge pain to get on and off, very poorly designed.
Pros: Text message set up, Display, Touch screen, Decent camera
Cons: Battery, Build, The phone itself, Call quality, Reception
Excerpt: GREAT PHONE OVERALL i dont use the internet never glitched on me and its a hell of a lot better than the glyde!!! Also it has great picture quality i took pictures for my schools yearbook with the camera. Also the key pad is a decent size i have never had a problem with this phone before.
Excerpt: okay so when i first got this phone i thought it was the best thing in the world ! now after about 2 months it wont vibrate anymore and it glitches A LOT ! sometimes i will even be sending a text and it will just shut off on me . and if im looking at a message conversation with someone and that person texts me it will freeze and you have to take the battery out ! it is such a pain . i keep going to the verizon store to get new ones .
Pros: good camera, nice widget bar, good web browser
Cons: doesnt vibrate, too many glitches, shuts off, freezes
Summary: I got this based on the many rave reviews on CNet. I had a Motorola Barrage (V860) and wish I would have kept it for one reason: reception ability. The V860 did a much better job of pulling in a signal. In places where the V860 would get 1 bar and be usable (could hold a call ok), the Convoy drops completely and says "searching for service". Otherwise it's an okay phone.
Excerpt: if your phone is constantly searching for signal its not just your phone because when i had the rogue it did it too. lives up to the line (glyde 2?). VERY glitchy. If they come out with a glyde 3 (rogue 2 whatever) they need to really revamp the entire idea, because the phones service/hardware/software is horrible. think very hard before you get this phone. the enV touch (although not great either) would probably be a better choice in this line of phones.
Pros: design of the phone. touch screen sliders always good, keyboard, pretty good after you get used to it., size. micro sdhc card good thing to have
Cons: no phone should overheat. NONE, the mp3 player is a HUGE disappointment, 4 phones glitched out on me. thats a problem, software needs to be upgraded.
Excerpt: i honestly hate this phone. it glitches all the time. it turns off randomly when im doing something. the video and picture quality is horrid. it is so slow. getting from one screen to another takes forever. the battery life is trerrible. it usually only lasts me eight hours because i use it so much. maybe its just the one i got and it needs replaced, but i dispise it with all my heart.
