Same problems as everyone else

Speaker died within the first week, they sent it back to the factory and instead of fixing it, they sent me a new one. Makes me wonder whether the inherent speaker problems are design flaw. Now I've had this one for two months and the battery is good for about a day before it dies. My Rugby III would last a good week. Don't buy this piece of garbage, its not worth the headaches....

Poor Functionality

I recently switched from the Samsung Convoy series which is the comparable Verizon phone. I had Convoys for over 6 years. No contest. This Rugby is painful to use compared to the Convoy. What can be done in one click on the Convoy requires 3, 4, or more clicks on the Rugby. Absolutely everything requires going through multiple menus. There are no hotkeys or shortcuts (i.e., that are actually short). The address book functionality is horrible. If I want to scroll to names that start with "S" I type in S and I get any name that has any S in it in any position. Texting is truly a pain. Phone sound quality is terrible and I have the same problem as others with being unable to hear the other end. I don't understand how Samsung can have produced both a lemon like this phone and the Convoy, which is sleek, lightweight and functional.

This phone would have been OK 10 years ago but in 2016 its junk. Texting is painful, the phone is below average in quality, the camera is junk by today's standards. Why would Samsung produce something like this now? Don't be cheap get a real phone.
