Summary: The phone quit working after five weeks so I had to buy another phone. Prior to this the phone served my purpose. There's no special bells and whistles and no keyboard texting option but that's okay for some people.
Excerpt: Wanted a good flip phone, something that seems to be hard to find nowadays. I really wanted to like this phone - ruggedized, no slip coating makes it easy to hold, not to big for pocket, front button lock prevents accidental Pocket Texting, good camera, awesome flashlight, lots of ways to customize it, and great battery live are things I love.
Pros: Great battery, decent build, decent camera, flashlight, Micro USB storage, loud speaker phone,
Cons: Voice quality is muddy, text size is rediculously small, dead spots where other phones work, Bluetooth downloads of photos sucks sometimes, PC will not recognize it via USB (tow Windows 7 computers).
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.
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.
