The perfect phone!! Outstanding value worth every penny!
I did a ton of research on this phone before buying it. I read mixed reviews from consumers, and am SO glad I decided to make the purchase. The only real negative about buying this phone previously owned was that the backup assistant somehow stayed connected to the prior owner's number. Verizon wasn't very helpful on figuring out how to reset the application, but I was able to manually transfer all of my contacts and workaround the inconvenience of not being able to use the simple backup assistant because I was too lazy (and it was too far!) to take it in to a Verizon store to have them do it for me. The battery life is unparalleled in quality.... it lasts days on a single charge & I LOVE that!! It doesn't have all the bells and whistles that today's smart phones have... in fact, the web features are a bit clunky and antiquated, but I find the most valued one to be the VZ Navigator/GPS navigation that this phone is equipped with and it works beautifully. I can also easily check my email from it. You don't HAVE to have a data plan to own this phone, but you CAN and I enjoy being able to have the choice. The phone is easy to use, the buttons are not too small and not too big. The phone isn't at all clunky. The sound quality and signal strength beat my old phone hands down. My husband has the DroidX and he is a little bit jealous about how indestructible and sturdy this phone is. The speaker is great and should I ever need to replace it, I'll be likely to replace it with the same model phone. Perfect middle of the road phone without all that extra crap you don't need!!!Read full review

Best "dumb" phone I have ever had.
I bought this phone because my LG Chocolate Touch was having some serious issues. I decided to buy the Brigade because I text more than I talk on my phone and the keyboard on the Brigade is very good. I also needed a tough phone because I am constantly working outside so my phone tends to go through a beating (especially during the summer). I have had the phone for a little while and am very happy with how it is doing. The texting is much easier than my previous phones. It is also easy to navigate through the menues. The camera is very good compared any other camera I have had on a phone. It is a little bulky but it is easier to get used to than I thought it would be. The ringer and speaker phone is very clear and loud. The battery will last about 3 days with light talking and moderate texting. In short, I am very happy with this phone and feel like I could take it anywhere.<br><br>Also, the reception is much better than my Chocolate ever was. On average (especially country areas) I get at least one more bar of service than my Chocolate ever did.<br><br>I would buy this product again and I would recommend it to anyone who is active, who likes the outdoors, or anyone who works outside. It is great for talking and texting.Read full review

I bought this for my son . He had one but it was warned to death and he wanted another one like it because it is a tough phone. He is very happy.

Very rugged phone
The phone is really rugged. In my engineering class I placed it in a bowl of water.<br>We then called my phone and it still worked!<br>I've thrown it across my room to prove how strong it is. It's INDESTRUCTIBLE!<br>There are barely any scratches on it!<br><br>There is one flaw: the software.<br>Why does verizon contract Casio to build indestructible phones, yet program it with terrible software?<br>The network speed is incredible. It downloads media faster than any phone I've used. However for a messaging phone the processing is weak. Sometimes when I get into texting the phone will shut off when messaging too much. To fix this all I do is turn the phone off for a few minutes. When I turn it back on, it always works perfectly for several hours.<br><br>Likewise, because it is waterproof it means that nothing gets in or out.<br>When you put that much padding on a phone some sound will be compromised.<br>Granted Casio compensated by putting in one of the loudest and highest quality speakers I've ever heard in a cell phone, however the microphone is difficult to work with. You have to absolutely make sure the microphone is level with the corner of your mouth. Otherwise they cant hear you. Once you figure out how to talk into it, its is incredibly easy to use and truly an amazing phone.<br><br>The only "real" problem is with the texting. However, this phone has been out for a while now, so soon Verizon should be releasing a software update for the phone which will hopefully fix the occasional text overload the phone can get.<br><br>This is a great phone and I'll never buy another!Read full review
