Pros:Dropped it on gravel not even a signle mark!

Battery life!

Really rugged!

Cons: T9 texting

Not a status symbol like iphone or Berry

No belt clip included

The Bottom Line: Great no frills phone that gets the job done for me!


I sold my iphone because the whole touch screen was'nt really up my alley. I opted to go for a traditional flip phone and I chose the Samsung Rugby, mainly because it looks tough and not "girly" like all of the other at&t flip phones. I couldnt be more happier with my purchase! Like the title states it reminds me of my old yet durable Nextels' phones. the user interface is easy to grasp, you can email your self ringtones (mp3's) and wallpapers (jpeg 176x220 pixels) , and media net is all I need to check the weather, sports, and email. The iphones internet and apps were to much and dont even get me started on the crappy batter life! I charged the iphone everynight and everyday and it still died before I got home from the office. The rugby last a solid 3 days with calls, texts, and media net suffering! All in all the Rugby wont make you look cool or flashy at the bar like an iphone or a Blackberry but it gets the job DONE! Another point I like is once you disconnect from media net you can recieve calls they dont get diverted to voicemail at&t didnt bother to tell me that when on edge the iphone takes DATA over voice priorty so ALL my calls went to voicemail as I dont have 3G at work or home. People say this phone is bulky I disagree it comparable to a NEXTEL/Sprint flip. Its feels manly and not girly small like most flips. feels smaller width wise than a RAZR but fatter in a good way. To sum up my review I love this phone and I hope to have this cool rugged phone for a long time! ILL NEVER BUY AN APPLE PRODUCT AGAIN!!!!!!
