Excerpt: I am a klutz. There are no ifs, ands or buts about it. My last two phones have gone through the gauntlet of cell phone useage. They have been: 1) dropped in a lake (repeatedly), dashed onto the ground from 20+ feet up, sat on, tossed from person to person and dropped, etc. They all died. This one has survived me for the last year and shows no sign of wear. The rubberized sides help you keep a good grip on it while the locking back of the phone helps protect the...
Excerpt: If you are looking for a durable phone that will take abuse and give you exceptional service, you need to check out this phone. It is military grade, which means that it is rugged and waterproof to an extent and it will handle the rigors of use. After rebate, I paid about $150 for the phone, but I need a phone that will take punishment and one that I can rely on to get good reception and easy to use.
Excerpt: This is my work phone. It does what I need it to, which usually just means making phone calls. I like the large screen and the Bluetooth has come in hand a couple of times. I would like to have a camera, but I guess you have to give something up to get a phone this durable. It is covered in rubber and has taken a couple of falls from waist level. It seems like it will last the two years until I qualify for a new one.

Summary: If you are looking for a phone that will last... then this is it I have had this same phone for almost 3yrs now! Iv been through many phones before I found this one. A new phone every 6months just does not cut it for me I just can't afford it. I am a drywaller so I need something that can tolerate the dust! And is durable and shock resistant. My phone is definitely showing its age but it still functions fine.
Summary: Why buy insurance? You can not get this great phone anymore. What a shame. They do not make them like they use to. They just do not make them. I got this phone as a backup in case the one I have got lost ... cause it will not break. What I have saved on not buying insurance these past 3 years have paid for this backup phone x10 over. Does everything I need a phone to do then some. Why by milk (extra battery) when you can get the whole cow for the same price.
Summary: I bought this phone for simple functionality. I was tired of using smart phones that cost 400 dollars and have to be recharged every few hours. I also work in construction and constantly had my phones getting scratched and damaged. This phone works perfectly and is very durable. It holds a charge for 2-3 full days. I don't talk much on it but I pretty much text throughtout the day. Its simple and easy to use.
