I rarely write reviews, I’m lazy. However, I had such a hard time finding any in-depth reviews before I bought this phone that I thought I’d provide one. This is coming from a long-time android smart-phone user. Like a lot of other people, I was sick of $200 phone bills and sick of the time suck that comes along with having a computer in your hands all day long. I decided to go back to a basic phone, and wanted something rugged. It was purchased used from another website.

Great little flip phone. It’s very resilient and resistant to water, dirt and drops. No SIM required on CDMA networks!

Very good basic phone. The speaker volume and clarity are good in noisy environments, and my voice is clear to people I talk to. Furthermore a SIM card can be installed, but a SIM card is NOT required on a CDMA network. You can also add a microSD memory card up to 64GB capacity for media and contacts storage. I don’t know how or even whether it works on a GSM network, so it might not be a good flip phone for international travel– but perhaps The mobile data is limited to 3G, so don’t expect to browse the web in any meaningful way.

Blind Friendly but not all functions are available anymore. Blame the Cell companies

I chose this phone because of the multiple reviews attesting to its durability. But that was only one criteria I used. Other considerations included the ability to use GPS navigation, to access the internet on a limited basis if needed, a decent camera with enough memory for a trip’s pictures, an MP3 player and most importantly of all, good accessibility for the blind. At activation I was pleasantly surprised at how well the readout worked on every function I tried. Then I got the first disappointing news. The GPS service wasn’t included, it had to be downloaded and then paid for in addition to my usual bill. Not entirely unexpected. Then I contacted Verizon to inquire about activating the GPS and internet services, only to be informed that Verizon, not to mention most of the other major cell carriers, stopped supporting those services for ALL basic phones as of the first of this year. To use those services you are now required to pay for a smart phone and deal with the associated headaches! That means twice the bill, constant update issues, crashing, constant attempts at hacking and cloning of your phone, not to mention the constant pop-up ads, and of course the constant need to be on guard against theft!. Exactly the reasons I don’t want a so-called smart phone.

Great flip-phone for constant use!

This is my second Convoy, as I’ve had one for about eight or so years, after having had a G-Zone (WOW!). The Convoy is practically indestructible, and the only reason I’m replacing mine (and getting my husband one too) is that the phone will no longer hold a charge, even with new batteries. I don’t have or want a “smart”phone, so the Convoy is perfect.

A solid, unpretenous phone

I wanted a phone that is, well, a phone. This is what I got. Yes, it has a camera and a flashlight, but it’s mostly a phone that fits in my pocket and doesn’t slip out. When I want to make a call I open it and key in the number. When I take a call, I open it. Sure, I don’t get the surprising pleasure of butt dialing a foreign head of state, but it works to send and receive telephone calls.

Inexpensive and easy to use!

I just purchased this phone today for my grandmother from the seller MyBullfrog in like new condition. It came even better than I thought it would. It looked brand new. Not a scratch on it. It was so simple to add it to my family’s existing Verizon plan, too. Did it online in five minutes flat! It’s simple to use and loud enough to both hear it ringing and hear whomever is on the other end of the line during a call. This same phone is I believe almost $150-$200 on Verizon. I got it for less than half that!

One tough flip phone

The Samsung Convoy 4 is tough, water resistant, flip phone. It has a camera and flashlight built in. Text message conversations appear in “strings” like a smart phone with oldest message at the top of list. As for battery life, starting out it has been going a week to ten days between charges. If you don’t want a touch screen, and want a tough flip phone this phone might be a good option.
