this phone does everything i wanted in a phone. the battery life is awesome. if you need a phone that is just a phone without all that fancy crap this is the perfect one. it is a little larger size than some so think about that before you buy,

And I was really miffed at the V750.

Great battery life. Easy to use. Can actually sync with Windows Media instead of the detestable Rhapsody interface. Best of all, it hasn't melted down in my pocket yet. Can't recommend this one highly enough. I still love to hate Verizon, but they got this one right.

Great phone.

This was an excellent deal on a super phone. It is easy to read. Has a loud ring tone and super voice quality. If you want an excellent basic phone that is built solid this is the one.

I have always opted for fairly basic cellphones without too many unnecessary bells and whistles, and the Convoy does not disappoint. A great "utilitarian" device in the true, form-follows-function format. I do not send or receive text or pix messages, and although the phone is certainly capable in both areas, heavy users of these services are probably better served by the current crop of "smart" phones. But in terms or making and receiving voice calls comfortably and efficiently, the phone is the best I've ever had. I should also mention that the Samsung Convoy is the first non-Motorola cell phone I've had, and I could not be happier. As other reviewers have pointed out, the Calendar function is a little weak, so if that is an important part of your cellphone usage, it would probably behoove you to once again consider the "smart" phone lineup instead. Perhaps not as "sleek" or "slim" as some of the other offerings, this is a great phone with a heavy-duty look and feel.

I'm a returning college student and although I think smart phones are very cool I just wanted a phone that gives me good signal and great battery life. The Samsung Convoy U640 does both. And despite being a military grade phone I find it sytlish and and attractive. It does what I want it to do without requiring any extras such as a data plan. I have a Zune HD, iPod Touch and a laptop to do that for me. Verizon Wireless is a fantastic cell carrier and I always have signal. Overall I really like this phone and highly recommend it if you're looking for a phone that does what cell phones were intended for, making and receiving calls.

Convoy worked great for about 3 months. Then battery life shortened and lots of dropped calls.
Went back to old Casio GZ oneS and no dropped calls.
Ive noticed a trend. Phones that do 3G high speed drop calls more than phones that do not.
I think they have trouble shifting multible tower sites when on the highway.
If you dont need high speed stick with a basic phone that doesnt do 3G.
It would be slick if you could turn 3G off like on the IPhone. But lets not open that can of worms.
AT&T doesnt work even with 3g turned off. Stick with Verizon and get a non 3G for highway travel.

This is a great little phone if you only need to use it as such. No bells and whistles just a solidly built phone with exceptional battery life. Easy to use and carry around in your pocket.

I am a mechanic and I cannot tell you how many phones I have broken crawling in/under/around vehicles and equipment but not this great phone! I realize it is not fancy and does not do all the stuff I could frankly, care less about. I want a PHONE...nothing more and nothing less and the Convoy is perfect. My wife is a veterinarian and I know hers has been stepped on by a cow, "slimed" with lube, dropped at least 40,000 times and even flew out of her shirt pocket out the window of her truck going 40 miles an hour when she hit a huge bump in the road...and it kept right on working!!! We have had these phones about 2 years.

Paired with EZ voice mail set-up & retrieval, the longest lasting battery of any cellphone I have ever owned and numbers and buttons you can actually see (I am over 50 so that is a big deal!) there is nothing I don't like about it and both my wife and I will hate having to go to another phone when these have lived out their phone life and we can no longer buy this model.

There are a lot of us who don't need data, video, pictures or unrelenting texting...just a phone...a tough, easy to use phone and the Convoy more than fits the bill.

Obtained this phone via Verizon when the battery in our old phone began to deteriorate. Overall, we like it quite well and the battery life we are seeing after a couple of months of use is quite good.

The side buttons, unlike our old LG, take a bit of effort to push, so are not so easily accidentally activated while holding the phone. The display is a decent size and generally visible, though, like most, is hard to see in direct sunlight. The ability to reorganize the menu items is a plus - items important to the user can be moved to the top (we use the list display).

The AC charger comes with a detachable cable which is standard USB on one end and can be used to connect the phone to a personal computer for both charging and data transfer (sigh, wouldn't it be nice if all phones used a cable standard on both ends, though?).

One amusing quirk - when the phone is set to answer with the push of 'any' key, evidently 'any' doesn't include the 'OK' (menu) key. That took a few tries to which to become accustomed.

Overall, the phone seems to be a decent basic (in today's world), solid phone.

I bought a Convoy about 10 weeks ago and, while I haven't used many of the features, it has worked well for most of those I did use. The one problem is that the regular speaker had a very slight, barely detectable "buzz" initially and it didn't bother me enough to want to deal with an exchange.

The buzz has grown recently to the point where it makes it hard to understand someone talking unclearly or with an accent and I sometimes have to request that they repeat themselves. (Tech support from India anyone?) Unfortunately, my 30-day return period has long expired and I seem to have no options except putting up with the problem or buying a new phone.

The lesson I hope to pass on is that if you have ANY problems with a phone initially (check them thoroughly to be sure), deal with them right away so that you are less likely to face these alternatives down the line.
