Recycling Batteries Responsibly

  • The European Directive on Batteries and Accumulators aims to minimise the impact of batteries on the environment and encourage the recovery of the materials they contain. In the UK, regulations on the recycling of batteries and accumulators (rechargeable batteries) were Introduced in 2009. The Waste Batteries Regulations aim to significantly increase UK collection and recycling of used portable batteries from 3% in 2007 to 25% by 2012, rising to at least 45% in 2016.

  • The battery symbol on a product or on its packaging indicates that the product must not be disposed of with general household waste. Instead, it is the consumer’s responsibility to dispose of their waste batteries at a designated collection point so that they can be recycled. The separate collection and recycling of batteries at the time of dispo sal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that they are recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. A comprehensive list of battery recycling centres can be obtained from: www.recycle-more.co.uk

  • All Samsung products that are subject to the Batteries Directive are compliant with the UK battery and accumulator Requirements. In accordance with national law, SAMSUNG Electronics (UK) Ltd is a member of an approved batteries producer compliance scheme. This scheme collects, treats and disposes of batteries on Samsung’s behalf.

Not very water resistant

I replaced my Rugby 1 with this phone and liked it until I was caught in a rain storm. The phone worked but had no display. With a phone that is advertised as water resisitant i went back to the AT&T store where I bought it and the enthusiasm they showed me when they were selling it to me disappeared.

They were rude and indifferent. I went to a AT&T reair center and was told sorry but I could put it in a bag of rice and it might work. Basically if you buy this phone which is said to be indestructable you had better buy the insurance. I would have ibought the insurance if I hadn`t been told how tough the phone was.

Sorry I bought it

Never had so many problems with a cell phone since my 1st in the mid 1980's, will not connect , does not ring , missed calls , have 100's of PHOTOS that I never intentionally took.

Speaker ON its off speaker OFF its ON :(. Cell provider has no clue on how to correct problems , taking out the sim card and reinstalling it is a CORRECTIVE measure.

This is a tough phone.

I have only had this phone for 3 months. It is great. I am a carpenter. I have droped it on cement flooor, bumped agenst walls, and thrown it acrossrooms.

The one thing I do not like about it is it takes lots of pocket pictures. Only up to 200 taken by it's self in my pocket. Good carma, big screen, ane love the speaker on it.

Simply Simple is Simply Perfect

The phone its self may not offer an array of applications but for professional use in heavy equipment the phone works perfectly, even miles into theback lands and great north this phone still preforms as if in the city.

With built in walkie talkie style engineering speaking and hearing in loud environments is higher than most phones I have used over the years. The rugged design proves its self over and over after being dropped nearly thirty meters from a tower in the rain this device still preformed. When our company phone policy had expired it was a no contest decision... everyone in the field received a Rugby.
