AT&T 4G LTE Network

AT&T's 4G LTE network allows for quicker access, smoother media streaming, and faster web experiences. LTE technology is capable of delivering mobile broadband speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G. Additionally, LTE technology offers a faster response time due to lower latency--the processing time it takes to move data through a network--vastly speeding download times for web pages as well as improving services such as mobile gaming and two-way video calling.

By the end of 2011, AT&T plans to launch its 4G LTE network in 15 major metropolitan areas, covering at least 70 million Americans. Coverage will continue to expand in the next few years and is planned to be largely complete by the end of 2013.

And when combined with 4G HSPA+ technology, AT&T is capable of delivering a quicker, more consistent mobile broadband experience than ever before. AT&T has deployed HSPA+ to virtually 100 percent of its mobile broadband network, which enables 4G speeds when combined with enhanced backhaul (via Ethernet or fiber). Backhaul is one of the major pieces of a telecommunications network. Think of it as the limbs connecting AT&T's cell towers with AT&T's backbone network that provides access to the Internet.

Tech Talk

LTE = Long Term Evolution
Advanced wireless technology capable of increasing AT&T's already-fast network speeds. Now in select markets with deployment ongoing.
HSPA+ = High Speed Packet Access
Paired with enhanced backhaul--the accelerated pipeline between our network backbone and cell towers across the country--this technology boosts network performance.

Android Ice Cream Sandwich Operating System

The Galaxy Rugby Pro runs the Android 4.0 operating system (dubbed Ice Cream Sandwich), which adds powerful new ways of communicating and sharing while improving on the best Android features: easy multitasking, rich notifications, customizable home screens, resizable widgets, and more.

Android IceCreamSanwich

The new Ice Cream Sandwich interface features an onscreen navigation bar that replaces the hardware buttons for Back, Home, and Menu found with older Android-powered phones. And with Google+ integration, you can video chat with groups of up to 9 friends as well as easily upload and share photos and videos. Other features include:

Face Unlock

You can now unlock your phone with just your face using the Face Unlock option. It takes advantage of the front-facing camera and state-of-the-art facial recognition technology to register a face during setup and then to recognize it again when unlocking the device. Just hold your phone in front of your face to unlock (or use a backup PIN).

And the lock screen now lets you do more without unlocking. From the slide lock screen, you can jump directly to the camera for a picture or pull down the notifications window to check for messages. When listening to music, you can even manage music tracks and see album art.

Home Screen Folders

Quickly access related apps right from the home screen by organizing apps and shortcuts into folders--just drag one app onto another to create a folder.


Multitasking is even easier and more visual in Android 4.0. The Recent Apps button lets you jump instantly from one task to another using the list in the System Bar. The list pops up to show thumbnail images of apps used recently--tapping a thumbnail switches to the app.

Voice Input

The new voice engine in Android 4.0 lets you dictate the text you want, for as long as you want, using the language you want. You can speak continuously for a prolonged time, even pausing for intervals if needed, and dictate punctuation to create correct sentences. As the voice input engine enters text, it underlines possible dictation errors in gray. After dictating, you can tap the underlined words to quickly replace them from a list of suggestions.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect blend of size/specs/durability. November 25, 2012
I bought this phone for compromise. Initially, I was doing the S3/One X debate like most people who want a high-end Android phone. One X had the price advantage, S3 has a removable battery and SD card which is a huge plus for me. Specs were comparable. But the drawback of both was the screen size. I had been using the HTC Inspire 4G, which was already so big in its case that I had to carry it in a back pocket rather than a front, taking it out to sit down comfortably. Both of these phones are bigger.

The current screen-size arms-race in the phone world is beyond me. I understand the benefit of a bigger screen, but when I can't comfortably fit the phone in my pocket anymore I think the return is diminishing. Apparently I'm alone on this (not really, I read more than a few posts on Android forums lamenting the issue), because the sub-4.5" screen, high-spec Android phone is a rare beast. I briefly (very briefly) even considered going to that walled garden (beautified prison?) that is iOS because Apple definitely got the size/spec balance right on the iPhone 5.

Enter the Rugby Pro.

I'm not a cliffdiver or anything, but I am an outdoorsy person who also drinks a lot. Both of those things mean that if I'm going to carry around something daily that is worth over $400 I need to take caution. I kept my HTC Inspire in an Otterbox during our time together, and that's the only reason it's still in re-sellable condition. That also means that I am going to need to put an Otterbox on an S3, One X, or iPhone. Which, especially in the case of the S3 or One X, means GIANT AWKWARD PHONE. That's why the Rugby Pro caught my eye.

Usually "rugged" phones are mid-level at best spec-wise. Not this one. Dual Core 1.5 ghz processor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Phone - updated March 11, 2013 February 22, 2013
This is my first smartphone. I am migrating from a 1st generation Rugby flip phone which served me flawlessly for over four years. Like another reviewer, I am not a cliffdiver or best buds with Bear Grylls. At the other extreme, I am not a phone worshiper, my phone is a tool, not an ornament. My 1st Gen Rugby rode in the back pocket of my jeans as long as I had it and left a wear pattern like a snuff can.

Enter the Rugby Pro. Actually, enter the Galaxy S3... My employer decided to pick up my cell phone expense and they sent me an S3. I was skeptical of the S3 as soon as I took it out of the box. For my hand, it was too thin, too slick, and too fragile-looking (more on that later). The S3 is a great phone but not for me. SO... I jumped through some hoops and my Rugby Pro arrived three days ago. It has the same mil-spec 810g qualities my Rugby flip phone had which means, in theory, the Rugby Pro is dunk-proof and bounce-resistant, etc. The exterior of the Rugby Pro is slightly textured instead of the mirror finish of the S3. The edges have some small ribs which make holding on to the phone easier. The headphone and USB ports have tightly-fitting covers.

From a connectivity perspective, it syncs perfectly with my company's Exchange email servers. Sound quality is great. It seamlessly transitions from 4g to my home network as soon as I walk in the door. Keyboard: I am still getting used to the tiny keys but have gotten much faster in just a few days.

I have very high expectations for the Galaxy Rugby Pro. Last year, I was eating dinner at a bar and the guy next to me loudly announced I was "from the '80s" because I had a flip phone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do your self a favor and give this phone a shot April 29, 2013
By Ken
The rugby pro will be the only smart phone I ever buy period, its tough for everyday life, it is not much bulkier or heavier than most other sm phones I have had, the display is great, If you are in the construction industry of any kind or have teenagers who are forever dragging you back to the store to get a new phone because they dropped theirs in the commode or worse then give this one a try, it will save you headaches and money in the long run, just make sure everything on the back of the phone is sealed correctly and locked and make sure after you pull the charger out you pop the cover back on properly, Yesterday i dropped mine in the mud and as luck would have it yes I backed over it in a full size chevy pickup, I figured it was done and I would have to get another one but I sprayed it off with clean water and it works like the day I got it, try that with a blackberry or one of the other smartphones, it has all the features the other phones do and this one has a cool corporate contact section with day by day and hour by hour scheduling which I am constantly going to, each one can have an alarm set for it as well up to 1 day out which I thought was pretty cool I am impressed so far, Trust me on this one guys and gals who work out in the elements get this phone, you will not be disappointed, The salesman at the AT&T store gave me a demo on the phone and actually took his watch off and tried to scratch the screen with a sharp part of his watch band and he could not so I asked If I could give it a try and I could not and I was pressing down very very hard, I told him sold after that little demo. Yes if you get this phone for a teenager you are probably going to catch more than a little you know what but trust me when their friends phones are down for a day here and there and your kids keeps working day in and day out then you will be the hero, it just may take a little while for them to jump on board.
