Summary: I was very disappointed with the phone I received. Granted, it was used, but even though it had seen quite a bit of wear and tear I would have overlooked that if it worked properly. The volume of the loudspeaker was not impressive and sounded like tin cans connected by a string.
Summary: This phone ended up dying in October. I bought it as a gift for my MIL. I am very disappointed in this phone made by Samsung AND it cost a fortune for something that only had a 30 day warranty. Avoid this purchase and find another brand and or model elsewhere. Totally bummed out about this buy.
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.
Summary: The phone has an external PTT (push-to-talk aka press-to-transmit) button which is quite easy to depress inadvertently. That brings up a screen wanting to start a PTT activity. (PTT is an optional, extra cost feature that lets your phone act much like a walkie-talkie.
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.
