Excerpt: If you use your phone very much, then you had better have back up batteries. I don't use mine much and have to charge it like every day to every other day. They have sent me two batteries now, and a new phone. I will never buy another smart phone again.
Excerpt: I have had this phone for about 3 monthes now. I havent liked it from day one but before i left a reeview thought i would give it some time and the benefit of the doubt. It is a very nice size and seems fairly rugged but thats about all the positive i can honestly say about it.
Excerpt: This is the WORST phone I have ever owned. It is so extremely slow. To the point that the phone screen completely blacks out when transitioning from one program to the next. I would have to say that it was just a glitch in the system or a bugs working out kinda thing with the phone BUT this is my...
Excerpt: Got wet from rain, front display is out of service, main display is half burned! Waste of money, and time! Red this reviews, did not believe them, but it's true, ONLY LOOKS RUGGED, but IT IS NOT WATER RESISTENT!!!!! Bought this phone from europe...now iţm sorry...
Excerpt: After less than two months of use the front screen cracked when the phone vibrated for an incoming text message. About two weeks later the phone got wet and quit working all together. AT&T will not help in any way because they say it is physical damage.
Cons: Front screen cracked from vibration alert., NOT water resistant., No warranty help from AT&T, Not tough at all.
Excerpt: Less than a year ago I decided to upgrade to a new phone. I work in construction, so I wanted something strong and durable. I spent about 200 dollars on this military grade phone (so they say). This thing is not near a tough as they say it is.
Excerpt: I recently purchased a Rugby for much the same reason as most of you I'm sure. I need something beefy, It's just too hard for me to handle a dainty little phone. Overall I take very good care of my electronics.
Pros: Big and beefy, nice feel, nice slide proof rubber guard.
Cons: Mil Spec is a joke, not at all tough like advertised, waste of time and money, not at all water resistant.
Excerpt: My last phone was a sony erricson. I had it for 3 years. It was dropped dozens of times as well as off of ladders as I am a contractor. It still works like new but looks very ratty so I unfortunately bought this Rugby. 1) I first noticed that that callers voices were not as clear.
Excerpt: I bought this phone for its rugged specifications. I'm an active person (firefighter) and I thought I'd like some additional protection. The specs are nothing more than window dressing. The phone got wet, admittedly immersed, and failed.
Cons: Heavy and bulky. You give up the nice feel and light weight for what is supposed to be a rugged phone. The phone doesn't deliver and neither does the factory.
