Summary: Good purchase, shipped quickly and they were all three new phones. We use these phones for employees who can't use iphones because of the delicacy of the iphone screens. These phones are very rugged .
Summary: I have one of the latest, greatest all singing and dancing Samsung cells. But... I'm in the infantry and wanted to take my phone out in the field as I thought some of the Android apps could be pretty helpful. However, I didn't want to take an expensive cellphone out in the boonies and kill it off within a matter of hours or days. I saw this phone priced here at $149 and figured I wouldn't cry too much if I destroyed the phone.
Summary: First the qualifier. I am not a computer geek so I don't need the absolute latest computer gimmicks. I want a cell phone that works easily, is GSM so I can use it in my travels around the world, has easy compatibility with my essential Skype and GoogleVoice, accesses the internet, and lets me check the occasional email, and has an adequate screen and letters so I don't have to pull out my reading glasses to use it, and of course has WiFi- which many waterproof phones...
Summary: I had my doubts buying this phone. The phone arrived in an AT&T box, but had no significant information about the device inside. I opened it and found everything as pictured, 1 phone, 1 battery, 1 wall charger, 1 micro USB cable. I popped in the battery and sim card and I was ready to go. The phone works perfectly, despite being replaced by the Rugby Pro and now Galaxy s4 Active its still a phone that can hold its own.
I can't imagine why you'd want an iphone when this seems so much better!

Summary: I've had this phone for a month now and love it. This is my first smart phone and it's easy to use - I love reading books with it too, supper clear text. My daughter has an iphone and everything she doesn't like about it Samsung has improved on.
Summary: I needed a ruggedized smart phone. There were 2 choices, this and Motorola; and I really dislike Motorola's software. After 3 months, workng outside every day, the phone has been flawless. I realize it's not the latest software version, and I don't mind. I'm not a bleeding edge kind of guy. It phones when I need it to, it texts when I need it to, and it webs when I need it to. It started out needing a charge every day.
