Texting Software glitch

piquant, Phone Arena
7 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Very similar to the convoy 2. The main menu button is not as easy to manipulate. Same average camera. The biggest problem is the text. There has to be a software issue here. The font on the convoy 3 is half the size as the convoy 2 making it very difficult to use. Neither Samsung or Verizon could fix it. Both were suprised how small it is.

10 September 2011
  • Pros: Long battery life, OK camera, VERY durable. Bluetooth connects easily and it functions well as a basic phone.
  • Cons: The biggest pain the *ss to connect to a computer to download picture or video, I have been at it for several hours and it still FAILS. Downloaded the factory software/ firmware upgrades and it still will not connect. I don't like the fact that you cannot

"Poor durability, good battery life"

spitfire777, CNET
20 September 2010
  • Pros: battery holds up well
  • Cons: poor design and materials quality. Dropped phone from waist height after only having it for three weeks and it broke into two pieces [struck hinged corner]. SHOULD NOT BREAK THAT EASILY, POOR MATERIAL QUALITY.

User Review

Rick E., HandCellPhone
29 August 2010
  • Summary: The Convoy phone has major contact problems. For example, if you try and scroll to a certain letter such as "B" to try and find a contact which starts with the letter "B", the phone will freeze and shut off. The same thing happens with many of the other letters of the alphabet. Verizon has known about the problem for quite some time, but blames it on Samsung, Samsung knows about the problem and blames it on Verizon.

"It is the worst phone I have ever owned"

idontwanttomakeaname, CNET
9 August 2010
  • Pros: make your ringtones from your sounds
  • Cons: bulky. dumbed down version of any basic phone. I would rather be without a phone and like in a cave than deal with it. if you are close to legally blind and couldn't use a track phone this phone is for you.
