The Rugby performs as advertised and is durable

MtnGuy, Samsung

  • Excerpt: I've has this phone now for about 8 months now. I live in the Sierra's. It's fallen in the snow, dropped on the ground and been in the rain. It's already had a brutal life and thus far, it's survived everything thats happened to it. Works well. Reception is very good giving the fact I'm some distance from a cell tower. My last phone, if I stepped outside would get about two bars on a good day.

This phone has very good features

  • Excerpt: Overall the Samsung Rugby is a very good phone, but it does share one negative that I have found in other Samsung products - the battery life is short. It has be to be recharged at least every 2 days, even when I just have it on but have not been actively using it. Placing calls, sending text messages, using apps - all worked very well.

Access to "Keyboard" pad during phone call

rayok1, Samsung
29 May 2014
  • Excerpt: After dialing a phone number, at times I am required to enter an extension number after the call has been answered by the company I have called; however, after the call has been answered, the screen goes blank and I have difficulty accessing the keyboard to dial an extension; more often than not, the screen fades in-and-out before I am able to use the keyboard to dial the extension; very annoying and frustrating.

  • Excerpt: Overall great phone except can't see screen outside even when shaded by hat or hand. For a rugged phone designed to be used outside, I consider this a significant demerit.

Worse phone ever!

Tabbyrex, Samsung
6 March 2014
  • Excerpt: I don't know if it was the phone itself or the fact that it was "refurbished"....but this phone was the WORSE phone I have ever owned. Within 6-7 months of owning it I was counting down till my contract renewed. Needless to say, I could wait! I would NOT recommend this phone!

Rugby works.

crayola98, Samsung
1 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Solid phone with great protection from physical mishaps and environmental factors. The Rugby Smart performs as advertised. While it would be great if the software could be updated above Gingerbread this phone does everything a smart phone needs to do.
