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: My other favorite feature is the ease at which I can check my three e-mail account in a matter of seconds under the messaging icon. Altogether, this phone is well worth the price and is sturdy, efficient and stylish. I haven’t bought a new phone in a long time, but am pleased with this purchase. I do recommend putting a screen cover to protect your screen and getting the outer phone protector.
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!
