Excerpt: While I am a staunch flip phone advocate, I am considering a smart phone, have to move to the 90s right? My issues with the Convoy are the blue tooth and the T9 vocabulary. The phone auto pairs with my car for about 2 weeks then I have to re-seat the battery. Usually don't discover until I receive a call while driving. When texting you would think it would recognize the need for the word 'is' or 'it' rather than '47' or the word 'when' instead of '9436'.
A basic & tough phone with great reception and a couple of extra features
14 July 2011
Summary: Ok, I’ve had this phone for a little over a week now so I know exactly what features I was use to and sure wish this phone had. 3 main features I will talk about are the Calendar, Display, and Ringtones. Calendar: Being a fire fighter and working every 3 days, knowing when I’m working as far into the future as I wanted was great.
Excerpt: This phone is both reliable, durable, and useful. It is extremely tough. Being a clumsy person myself, I have dropped this phone so many times I cannot count and it still holds up even after all those drops. It has a pretty good battery life and can last for days on a full battery. I like it because its simple and can be a pay as you go. It is a good price for what you get.
Excerpt: I am OK with my Samsung Convoy cell phone but that is about it. It is a good overall basic phone with a decent camera and at a reasonable price. It is pretty tough as I have managed to drop it several times. The battery life for me is about average for other cell phones tha I have used in the past.. The phone is a little thick than other cell phones of the clam shell design.
Summary: I got this based on the many rave reviews on CNet. I had a Motorola Barrage (V860) and wish I would have kept it for one reason: reception ability. The V860 did a much better job of pulling in a signal. In places where the V860 would get 1 bar and be usable (could hold a call ok), the Convoy drops completely and says "searching for service". Otherwise it's an okay phone.
Pros: Excellent voice quality and background noise reduction, actually too good. Great battery life. Good hefty feel. Good quality camera.
Cons: Phone is too big for a flip phone. Only one volume control for the entire phone. Background noise reduction is so good you think the other person has hung up. Battery life is good because the cover display is off most of the time.
