Summary: I'm a Millwright and I go through or have gone through a lot of phones. Not this one. It does not have all the bells and whistles as most phones but really that is not what this phone is about and what it is a about is top of the line in its class and price range. The only thing i don't like is at&t will charge you for using the g.p.s.
Summary: I ordered this phone for my dad who is in construction. So far it has withstood the beatings of his job and he is very satisfied with its basic functions. He needed a basic but good rugged phone and for the past month he has had no problems so we are hoping this one will last him at least a year or two, if not more. Trustworthy seller as well, as the phone arrived on time & functions perfectly.
Summary: like it the keyboard I like a little bigger.........otherwise very nice phone. the transfer of photos to email ......a lot more involved than on my razor Motorola phone...... seems a little more involved in doing things compared to my razor..........but still I really like it....take longer to do things than on my razor phone.........
Summary: I just got the Rugby III today, seems good so far. I was trying to get my keys for the door & I accidentally dropped it from the 2nd story landing and it was raining. I thought, I hope there right about this phone it was all wet and it hit the lawn chair arm and then the sidewalk. I went down and got it and it was ok, not scratched. I made a call, and received one since then, all ok. Glad that was not my Atrix.
Pros: great for running around. , works in the rain.
Summary: A great little phone for the not so techy person, simple and rugged... Not a smart phone by any means it has a great speaker and if your prone to dropping your phone or getting your phone wet this is the product for you, it just feel like a heavy duty phone in your hands great for a contractor of some one who needs a sturdy no nonsence device.
Summary: I bought this phone because I am pretty hard on phones and am sick of replacing them all the time. Plus, I needed a flip phone because I'm sick of making calls and sending text by accident, and this phone is perfect. The Samsung Rugby is a seriously tough phone, and the flip up feature cuts down on butt calls. It's pretty easy to use, but if you're looking for something that does a million things and will impress your friends, this phone is not the one.
Summary: Despite what the reviewer says here, I've had great call quality. Of course, I'm coming from a smart phone, so maybe my opinion is a bit skewed. But I also had a land line until recently and it compares pretty favorably to that experience, so I guess it was just the area the phone was used in.
Pros: Phenomenal battery life, nice clear calls, easy to use number pad
