Summary: Yes, I was thankful to locate this phone that was very similar to the one I was replacing for my Aunt. She is a very "senior-senior" and did not want to relearn many new features. Her old one had numbers that were more pronounced and easier to see, but this one will suffice.
Excerpt: Before this phone, I had a Blackberry & two Droids. While those were great phones, the battery life on them was terrible. I got sick of charging my phone around the clock & decided to try something a bit simpler.
Excerpt: I like the solid feel of the phone. Sound is clear with speaker on and off. Reception is about average but no antenna port. Battery life is excellent. Screen usless in daylight. Holster falls off belt easly but sealed ports make for pocked or purse carry.
Excerpt: Very satisfied with the battery life! I don't text or surf so re-charge once a week is all. Call quality is great. Great customization of buttons and shortcuts.

Excerpt: I've had similar phones with the design and functions that the convoy has. I find it easy to use and learn and move around in the menu. we tried other phones of different styles and they don't seem to have the durability or range that the convoy has.
Pros: great signal, easy to learn and use. like the flip shut desgin
Cons: the T9 Word feature doesn't work as it should, volume button on the side gets changed due to the way you hold the phone when talking.
Summary: Works as well as the previous Samsung Convoy my husband owned. He lost his first Convoy after a good four years, tried a different flip phone just was not the same.This used Convoy feels a little loose when you flip it open, but not a major. These phones are pretty rugged.
