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.  I went to AT&T and was told that I could upgrage another number in my plan but there was nothig they could do.
  • Pros: good rubber feel, Long battery life
  • Cons: Can't hear even on outsidemode. Ring tone is low. Phone is heavy and big.

Needs a Couple of Improvements

  • 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.  I didn't like not being able to access a phone number stored in the address book if a default had been set to a different number.
