Top Customer Reviews
That said, once a fix is hopefully issued, the phone should fill my needs. It is a decent looking, rugged phone that has the features I need.
More disturbingly though? About half of the people using these phone have started having issues where the phone acts like it has a dead battery and powers itself off, randomly. When this happens, the power button won't turn it back on again. You have to pull the battery out for a few seconds and put it back in, to get the phone to turn back on.
I tried to exchange one of these phones at my local Sprint store last week for this problem, only to find out that it's a known software problem with ALL of the Taho phones, and they don't have a fix yet! So basically, I can't recommend this phone to anyone until they get this resolved!
(On the plus side, these phones do seem to be relatively rugged, as advertised, and seem to run for a long time on a battery charge.)
I would not recommend this phone.
