Excerpt: This phone is built to be tough which it is. Ive dropped it and knocked it around many times without it ever being affected. However it is rather slow. It constantly freezes and locks up. I frequently have to crash it to stop it and get it to move on.
Excerpt: I purchased this phone and have been using it for about 3 weeks now. Its a great phone for the average user. The processor is a lot slower than most droid phones I have used. The only benefit of this phone is its durability.
Excerpt: This phone was purchased for our son based on the product claims. We wanted a phone that would be durable and stand up to the use of a 13 year old. We have had it one week and it is already broken from one drop. The phone fell out of sweat shirt pocket and the screen broke!
NOT AS RUGGED AS THEY WOULD LIKE YOU TO BELIEVE/NO WARRANTY

Excerpt: I have had my Rugby a few months. I only purchased a rugged so that it would last until my contract was up. I work in an office and have not abused or dropped my phone. I opened the phone and the plastic hinge broke in two.
Pros: good rubber feel, Long battery life
Cons: Can't hear even on outsidemode. Ring tone is low. Phone is heavy and big.
Excerpt: I tried for about 3 weeks and took it back. It's rugged but doesn't come with a longer warranty. The PTT button is easily pushed by accident. The coating/paint on the outside edges started flaking off as I have seen noted in other reviews by users.
