Excerpt: I wanted the most feature rich flip phone I could find, and this seemed to fit my requirements. Some of the important features do not work well. I wanted it to have a music player feature. This phone only plays the right channel of stereo music when playing thru the phone's speaker.
Excerpt: Prior convoy 2 customer. Really enjoyed the size, and clarity of the phones sound to my aging ears. Bought the iPhone 5S, used it for 7 months, and sold it because it was really a phone for those that like to play with it as a computer/toy, which I already had at home.
Excerpt: I would like it better if the alarm actually worked correctly. The phone doesn't wake up for the alarm to go off and I have already replaced it once. When I flip it open it takes at least 3 seconds for the screen to light up so besides those small issues great phone.
Excerpt: This phone is completely faulty and unreliable. The alarm clock doesn't work and the phone constantly lags. Whenever I answer the phone, it takes a few seconds to register and pick up my voice. I am very displeased.
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.
Excerpt: Received on 6-Sep-2013. After 2 days and several bumps and drops understand this is a very tough phone. Very basic as upgrading from Smartphone due to costs. Inexpensive and the call clarity is excellent. Not too fancy and such but does what a phone is supposed to do.
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...
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).
