    Very good phone but misleading box contents and features

    It is a very good phone that syncs very easily with my Bluetooth devices. The battery seems to last forever in standby mode (I am not a heavy phone user). A little big and heavy for a flip phone, but given that it is water and dust proof, etc., it is understandable. My biggest complaint is that both the box and the manual says that it comes with a MicroUSB to 3.5 mm adapter - well, it does not. What appears happened is that when Samsung updated the Rugby II to Rugby III they removed the feature to plug a 3.5mm headset via the adapter, but they did not update the info on the box and manual. Why they would remove that feature is unexplainable given that the phone can take up to a 32 GB micro SD card and thus would make a terrific MP3 player during my frequent long flights. I could use the MP3 feature with a Bluetooth headset, but that does not work on an airplane. As it is now, the phone is not compatible with any Micro USB or 3.5mm headset. The prospect of listening to music via the built-in speaker is a non-starter

    This phone is tough but that's it's best feature. The side mounted buttons interfere with just carrying this the PTT button when pressed accidentally in hand or holster bumps alarms and calls off when you try to answer the phone. The volume buttons also interfere. Once the PTT button is locked if you get a PTT call you must drop the call, go to three menus and then turn the PTT talk button on by then you could have just called. The front screen is not needed. if you need the time you must open the phone to see time on the front screen. My last Samsung phone was a Slider SGH-a777 and in my opinion it was the better phone between these two.

    Okay, I'm pretty tough on phones. I've put two in the drink and wore one completely out. Last models I had (not Samsung's) would pop apart and I had to put everything back together. But this Rugby is great. Never "flies" apart. Endures all kinds of torture. Hasn't been in the drink yet but is protected to 4 meters. I don't even want to be that deep by accident. Never misses a call, never drops a call. Use it for my alarm clock and I love that I carry my alarm every where I go. Easy to operate, pretty intuitive. I HIGHLY recommend this phone for the rugged guy. Also love the "rubbery" outer shell. Makes holding on to it a cinch.

    I got this phone because my company will not pay allow us to have smartphones. If you want a basic phone that does not need a data plan this is not the one you want. Most of the features on this phone require a data plan of some sort, which makes it an expensive basic phone if you don't have data. Also the navagation button is not real user frendly if you have big hands. Most of the time you either will back out of what you are doing or go to the wrong screen. Another "flaw" with this phone is the loaded ring tones are awful. I had to connect to a PC and download sone ringers that I coud hear and were not so "prissy".

    I purchased this phone in February this year because I was looking for a durable basic phone. I was tired of having phones that felt cheap when I held them. This phone does everything that I want it to. It has great audio quality, a nice speaker phone, physical key pad, solid-feeling buttons on both sides of the device. The phone has stayed connected during the majority of my calls and the battery life is excellent. While the camera is low quality, it does not matter to me that much because I do not use it very often. All in all, a great device that I recommend to those looking for a basic phone.
