Not "ruggedized", not good

Frank Stein, Amazon
1 July 2014
  • Summary: There's nothing I can see that qualifies this phone as "ruggedized". It's a standard flip phone, that's about it. One problem is that it's a ridiculously huge flip phone. Easily the largest flip phone I've seen. Another problem is it works only intermittently - at best - on the T-Mobile network. I used multiple SIM cards in this phone, but consistently had the same issues with spotty function (sending texts and making calls).

Not an UNLOCKED phone

Jon Freeman, Amazon
1 March 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this phone to be used on T-Mobile's network. When inserting the SIM card, I am told that I need the network unlock code. This phone has AT&T logos on it, so I would assume that it is still paired to their network. This product being advertised as an "unlocked GSM ruggedized phone" is just false. My phone was shipped from Tablet Distributors...

Great, if you don't want a working phone.

AlanMG, Samsung
31 August 2013
  • Summary: Phone turns off by itself. Makes no noise when it does so. Resetting, restoring, etc. do not fix issue. Support from Samsung is sympathetic but pathetic. Will only repair, not replace, so that that when your new phone does not work, you end up without a phone for two weeks (or more) while they fix their product. Told that they don't have facilities to provide replacement phones. Guess that says it all, too many that don't work and need to be replaced.
  • Cons: Poor quality, Did not meet expectations, does not work as a phone.

This company sucks

Favian, Amazon
5 June 2013
  • Summary: I recently bought this phone from Ehome Tech and I was happy with my purchase until I found out the phone would not charge a couple of days later after I received it. I contacted the company about it and they answered one of my emails about the phone but when I asked to exchange it they completely ignored me. I do not recommend buying from this company!

ljs12340, Ebay
4 April 2013
  • Summary: sadly it is not a phone that I would buy again. 1st the connection ability is no better than my old model. the bluetooth connection to the laptop was ok, but lacked the ability to read the memory card [the phone itself was easily read] but not the card that actually holds the pictures taken.

AT&T Unlocked Rugby II A847 3G

Kryz72, Amazon
6 November 2012
  • Summary: It's not an AT&T network phone, rather TELUS which is a Canadian Network. It is not completely Unlocked/unlockable. I will never be able to send or recieve pictures or get any media/internet if I were to choose so because it can not be unlocked completely. Also due to recent experience with the daylight savings change, to prob include travelling across the continental US, the time will not update on it's own. You have to manually update the time.
