Summary: I bought this phone for my husband. He works in constrution type areas and needed something that took a beating. That it does and the call quality and reception are great. You can get on the intenet if you desire. It is 3 g capable. Great phone and yes I would recommend it to others.
Summary: I was looking for a durable, t-mobile compatible, flip phone for my hard working hubby and this is PERFECT! It's made by AT&T, but since it's an unlocked phone and it takes the same sim card as t-mobile...I just stuck his card in and it worked perfectly. It's large enough for his big hands and has big buttons. The sound, reception, and features are GREAT! It doesn't have a lot of "bells and whistles", but that isn't what we were looking for.
Summary: This phone replaced a MOTOROLA TUNDRA which I kept very shortly. Loved the Rugby (past tense). After many years, I dropped it in the lake. It was a constant companion for kayaking, to give you an idea of the abuse it took .. and kept on ticking.
Summary: I ordered this phone for my husband who goes through cell phones like tissue as he ends up ruining them at work. This is a great phone, very sturdy, durable and well worth the money. He has gotten his pocket wet with the phone inside, dropped it off a forklift, had a tool box fall on it, etc...etc...and it is still working perfectly. I highly recommend this phone to anyone that is rough and has trouble with phones getting damaged often.
Summary: I love this phone because it can take a beating. My work demands a phone this reliable let's put it this way my friend was making fun of it I took it slid it oacross the floor to a wall told him to call my phone still worked asked him to bdo that with his smart phone still waiting
Summary: Nice phone, bought it refurbished in Like New condition, very rugged, waterproof, (not tested yet) sound is good, light, the single problem is that is little bulky, (not a slim razor phone) need bigger pockets, otherwise excellent phone for specially outdoor people, or for those who don't care too much ...
Summary: I really like this phone. It works well very good reception and has great battery life. it is also the most rugged phone I have owned. It was used and really beat up looking when I got it but also really cheap. I however did super glue the PTT and the silly speaker buttons. I also live in a area of high crime and less than a mile from my home a young man was killed this year for his smartphone....No one would bother to steal this beat up cheap looking phone!
Summary: I bought this for my husband. He loves it. He is disabled and has the use of only one arm. His hands are big and he is able to use the keypad easily. Did I mention that hes has had the phone for only a month and has dropped the phone on wood floor already and the phone has stood up. It was not in pieces. Great phone!!!!!
