Summary: The old flip-phone finally failed. My wife prefered a phone with a slide-out keyboard, but didn't want an expensive data plan. Since my daughter has been using a Samsung Rant for a few trouble-free years, I thought it would be a good choice for my wife as well. No regrets! It's a great rugged phone, easy to learn and use, with excellent voice clarity. It has a very nice camera, and is perfect for text messaging.
Best phone I've had that isn't a smartphone.

Summary: I had this phone in red and it is a great phone for texting for a member of the generation that needs a phone but the smartphone is too much. It takes great outdoor distance photos too - not so good for indoor/people shots. But adequate. I bought a used phone in black when the charger connection on my red one started to get wonky, and now I'm back to happy.
Summary: I LOVE THIS CELL PHONE ! I HAVE 7 PEOPLE IN MY FAMILY WITH THIS CELL PHONE ! WE ALL LOVE THIS PHONE ! ITS VERY EASY TO USE ! IVE HAD MY RANT FOR ABOUT 3 YEARS AN I HAVE NEVER HAD 1 PROBLEM WITH IT ! I LOVE THIS PHONE ! THIS PHONE IS NOT A SMART PHONE BUT DOES EVERYTHING A SMART PHONE DOES AN WITHOUT THE EXTRA COST OF HAVING A SMART PHONE ! IF THERE WAS 1 THING ID CHANGE ABOUT THIS CELL PHONE , ID MAKE IT HAVE A BIGGER SCREEN !
Summary: the only area i could rate it low in is features--but i don't want a lot of features or apps, so that's a 5/5 for me. it's so easy to operate and user-friendly. i went back to the rant after my LG touch screen died in an accident involving a large dog and a can of soda. i hated that freaking phone.
Excerpt: I like the slide out QWERTY keypad. Don't like the browser for internet (thru Sprint) - very slow and can't access secure websites. As soon as I can get an "upgrade" to my phone, I think I'll get the exclaim.
Excerpt: This Rant phone is super great for texting. The sound is amazing too..love the clear sound quality. Easy to get around on...just click a few buttons and you are where you need to be..Sprint is also an amazing cell company!
Not good for bluetoothing ringtones, but overall reliable.

Excerpt: I got this phone because my other one would freeze in the middle of texting, and i'd have to turn it off and on again. this phone is much more reliable, it doesn't freeze, it works great. my only complaint was that i thought it came with bluetooth so i could send and recieve ringtones, but i can't.
