Summary: I got this phone for my wife to replace an old samsung with a broken hinge. The voice quality is very good and it is easy to hear people on it using speakerphone which is very loud. Battery life is good lasting about 5 days. Things are easier to read than my older samsung both on the keys and on the display because they are bigger. My wife had one of these about a year ago, but dropped it into a glass of water, it died instantly, no milspec here.
Durable, fantastic battery life, and pre-installed IM Apps

Summary: The battery life is fantastic. Depending on use, you could easily get this phone to last a week on one charge. An accidental drop won't mean a shattered screen; this phone is very, very durable. Also, if you use instant messenger services like AOL, Yahoo, or MSN, they are already pre-installed on the phone.

Summary: I bought this phone because I bought a 2011 Volvo and the Nav/BlueTooth system would not work with my old Samsung phone. Volvo said this one would work and it does--I can now do voice activated dialing through the car and have a conversation hands free. I am using the camera also, but miss the flash that my old Samsung Snapshot had. This camera is close to being as good as the old Snapshot, but that one was 5 Megapixel--an outstanding camera.
Summary: I got this phone for my wife who just wanted a basic phone, and we have been very impressed so far with this phone. The voice quality is very very good and it is really easy to understand people on it. The camera takes very nice pictures and the overall phone is pretty fast with very little lag. The speakers are very loud and work very well. Battery life is extremely good lasting 4 days with no problem depending on use.
Summary: This phone is durable and moisture resistant (not water proof). I have dropped mine many times with no broken parts. It has enough features for an affordable field use phone. I'm still trying to figure out the push to talk feature.
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. I researched Verizon phones with long battery lives & this seemed to be one of the best in that department. Although this isn't the fanciest or most attractive phone, it's dependable and the battery life is amazing.
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. Port covers attached to phone when off the port. Ring solund level a bit low. Interface is similar to last phone and covers all the tasks I need.
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. Hated the fact that I couldn't hit a key in the middle of the night to see what time it was, but, found that holding one of the front keys down turns it on. Nice lock feature was prob needed. No accidental pics and music playing.
