Great phone, very durable.

Summary: This phone is very durable, and compact. Occasionally it will hang up and I'll have to reset it by pulling the battery for a second and then putting it back in. My wife's phone of the same kind doesn't do this. It doesn't happen very often though. The CPU on the phone seems adequate but the memory is a little low, luckily it has a tool for clearing programs out of ram memory which speeds it up. I will probably shop for a newer Rugby when I decide I need a new phone.
I like it a LOT... once I got the battery issue resolved

Summary: I got 2, one for me and one for my wife for about $150.00 from Consumer Cellular. Initially the battery life was pretty bad but would last for a day almost always. I found JuiceDefender and went with the Ultimate option,,, that's just the way I am when the cost is pretty low. Installing that and setting the options like I like made a WORLD of difference on battery life! I think it should be installed on all Rugby Smart phones and maybe ALL android pones!
Pros: Just about everything, especially the ruggedness
Cons: sometimes the outgoing audio doesn't work but that may be the carrier, not the pone
Summary: I had few issues getting it on a MetroPCS carrier once the T-mobil merger (or whatever it was) went through, As for the pheon itself, it was a decent camera and is waterproof but i dont test fate, just know I dont have to worry when i leave it in the pocket at work, bc im a lifeguard. I have had the hardest time rooting it though. The only con I see is that if I leave screen rotation enabled, I cant type so the full keyboard is crap.
Summary: Awesome phone very durable. Purchased because my son and I both are hard on phones. This is my first actual android and the ease of use is amazing. Only drawback is the excess amount of apps preloaded on the phone that are not removable. Other than that amazing phone worth the $$$ .
All the latest smart phone features in a durable long-lasting design.

Summary: Great phone overall. A smart phone with all the latest features, but it has a rugged durable design so no worries about breaking it. The one button touch for the flashlight is really handy too. Excellent screen and camera quality. The only thing I really don't like is how slow the phone is. After you open 3 or 4 programs it really starts to slow down. But I bought it for the rugged durable long-lasting design so I can live with that. I highly recommend this phone.
Summary: Excellent phone. No problems with the phone. Very pleased with the capabilities the phone offers. Would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in a phone that will withstand the tests of time.
