Military grade granny's phone, great product for grandpa too!
14 August 2014
Summary: I like the feel of the phone HOWEVER.... its not my idea of Military grade. Having the Gps make up for this a little. I noticed areas were I would like to have seen better design, the battery is covered and not able to take an upgraded battery, the battery charges from an outside port with no o-rings to seal it ( water proof?? ), no charging stand and the overall size makes it feel like a "technology challenged individuals" phone.
Summary: The phone is a nice size. It is compact and lightweight fits good into pocket. Has a ribbed type case so it's not slick, easy to hold without dropping. Biggest problem is the battery life. I have to charge it every other day, or I won't have enough power for a phone call. Just in standby mode I go to make a call and battery is LOW. I have asked AT&T for a NEW battery and they sent me one. 3 new batteries no help, same problem.
Pros: Rugged, nice rubberized grip
Cons: Battery life, have to answer call right away
Summary: The phone is great. Hardware-wise everything works as it should, and the phone is touch, durable, and rugged. Only problem is that AT&T software is DEEPLY embedded into the firmware, and so if you want to use it for T-mobile (as I do) or other GSM providers, be prepared to use it strictly for phone calls and texts (and photos, though the camera is anemic at best) . No GPS, No internet, no email, not unless you have AT&T service.
Summary: The phone is very sturdy, but pretty hard to navigate. A PPT screen keeps popping up each time I open it, at the numbers are not displayed in the front when the phone is closed. Also, the charger did not work.
Summary: I love the phone, however I can only use the voice and basic text (no pictures text, no internet). I was told I could use this phone with Straight Talk and all the functions but this is not true. I even carried the phone to a cell phone repair shop and they could not get it to work either. My first disappointment with anything I have order off of Amazon. I would give the phone 5 stars if it worked with Straight Talk.
Summary: I've already had the phone before and it works for me. I bought this as new, and it came with a phone number directory of 300 or more numbers, Emails, etc. Although it had all the packaging, I've got to wonder how it came to possess these things if it were really new? My only complaint...
