I've has this phone now for about 8 months now. I live in the Sierra's. It's fallen in the snow, dropped on the ground and been in the rain. It's already had a brutal life and thus far, it's survived everything thats happened to it. Works well. Reception is very good giving the fact I'm some distance from a cell tower. My last phone, if I stepped outside would get about two bars on a good day. The receiver on the phone is alot better and now I get (usually 4 bars) and on a good day, all 5 bars. Simple to use and battery life is alot better than previous phones I've had. It's made my life alot easier. I've expanded memory (SD card) and I have really nothing to complain about. My one and only gripe is, how does one clear the phone logs ? Other than that, I'd recommend this in a heart beat. Great phone. Durable and battery life is alot better than most.

I previously had a Samsung Captivate and I wanted something similar, but did not want to pay a lot of money. I looked around and found this phone, I have had it for a few weeks now, I use it all the time, and I absolutely love it

I have had the Rugby Smart for a week and I love it. It is durable, capable and WATERPROOF. Yes, waterproof. I read a review that someone wrote about their 7yr old child throwing it into a swimming pool (6ft of water for 40mins) and it still worked. I am rough on my gear and I need a phone with that kind of durability. I went to the AT&T store to check it out and walked out with one of the last phones in stock. ***There is nowhere to really rate this below, so I will say that two of the best features of this phone are: 1) FULL DUPLEX SPEAKERPHONE. If your not tech savy, this means no more talk-and-pause for a reply. You and your caller can talk at the same time without the phone cutting in and out. Simply awesome!!! 2) 720p AMOLED screen. The screen has true daytime-sunlight viewing. No joke, With the useful widget that lets you change the setting with just a few short presses, turning your screen brightness up for sunlight is easy and it makes sense.
