This is a sturdy little phone I bought especially since it is waterproof. Even though it was labeled as a Verizon phone it didn't come with a SIM card. Walmart wanted $50 for a SIM card so I went to a regular Verizon store and after some arguing they put in a SIM card for free.
But Verizon also charges $35 to activate the phone, and another $45 for the first months prepay service, so add that to the cost of the phone if you are considering buying one.

The lady at Verizon told me they used to have one of these phones actually soaking in a fish tank to prove it was actually waterproof. If you work in a wet environment this is probably a good phone to have.

I know others have not spoken so highly of this phone but I absolutely LOVE it. It is easy to use and it does everything I want a phone to do. I only rated it four stars because of the camera. It is a decent camera but I have had better cameras on phones in this price range before. Even so, I turned down an upgrade because I LOVE this phone. I especially love its durability.

The phone was nice to use and had good features for a 4G phone. The only probably I had with the phone was the charger in put must have been bad and it charged slow. I ordered a new battery for it and a new charger,but it didn't help the problem. The company was really nice about the whole deal and gave me a whole refund for the phone. That was a plus and they handled the issue very well.

I have had this phone for almost 2 years and although it has stood up to the punishment well hardware wise it does have some problems with the software. The first problem that I had was that a Verizon Locator Agent message would pop up when I was trying to do something and wouldn't close. I was so frustrated with it that I almost pushed my finger through the screen pushing the deny button. That problem went away by itself after about 3 months of frustration. Sometimes I will get a message that says "slow charging use the original charger" and I am using the original charger. The lingering problem that it has now is that every time that I look at a text message and every time that I send one it gives a message that says Message not sent, review the message and send again. It does this even though I am not sending a message and have to double check to make sure that it has sent the message when I do send one. It seems like there should be a software upgrade to fix these problems but there isn't one available.

The battery life is terrible. I have had it go from 100% to 1% in less than 3 hours only using the phone to check the time. The phone doesn't do well in weak service areas and when it is voice roaming the battery dies quick. It takes a long time for the battery to recharge even with the original charger.

I like the fact that this phone can handle some moisture. Mine fell out of my pocket and into a puddle. It was there for quite a while before I noticed that it was missing. All I did was dry it off and it worked with no ill effects.

If you are looking for an inexpensive phone that can take normal abuse in stride this is a good one. The software issues are an annoyance that you can get used to and if you can keep it plugged in you can play games and web surf.
