No, I'm not. When you enter into the sales chat for Verizon and ask for
a military grade phone they send you the link to the Convoy 3 (which is
almost impossible to find via their "Shop" interface) and according to
them the CPO really is refurbished, not "display model". The Convoy 3,
and an even more tragic dumb phone are the complete set of "rugged"
offerings utilizing Verizon celluar service. No confusion. Just being
told to purchase jokes.
What good is a strong signal when the phone is broken? You are risking
your life on a cheaply made phone.
So you are willing to risk your life on poor service over taking care of your phones better...
ok so if sprint is the way to go, why are you trolling verizon message boards.......
When you are in a crash and bleeding out, I guess it will be a great
comfort to know you have a strong cell tower signal. Too bad your new
iPhone is now a puddle of parts on the floor or in your shirt pocket.
When your ina crash and bleeding out and your phone is in great condition but you cant make a call because you have no service too bad. Ill ask you the same question. If spirnt is so great why are you trolling verizon message board. You have no excuse exept you must be a verizon custoemr and your butt hurt because they wouldnt give you something you didnt deserve at some point in time. Sprint will pay your ETFs so you have no reason to stay, exept you know their service is trsh so you wont make the switch you just like to complain
Same as above. Phone will be fine but how can you make a call without service. Catch22.
Also if you were dying you know the chances of you making a call from something like that? More than likely someone else will make the call. When jobs that dangerous you should never be alone... Just saying.
Much greater than the chance of making a call from something like that
with a broken Apple dumb phone.
Anyway, I will leave you 2 trolls to the dark spaces under your bridge.
The original topic for this thread was:
"why is Verizon determined to drive me away by dropping all
pretense of having any RUGGED basic phones?"
I answered the person and now, aparently, relatives of upper management
are in here trying to defend a completely indefensible position. Before
the trolls appeared, everyone on here needed a rugged phone WITH a
functioning network. Hence the original poster's frustration. Dumb
phones are fine for the dumb. A very large segment of the cellular
market needs an honest to goodness rugged phone on a reliable network.
Right now we can get one or the other. This is mind boggling given the
various defense agencies use of cellular and requirement of rugged
phones, hence the mil-spec numbers tossed about.
Calling us trolls... You are the one who isn't thinking rationally here. Also my job is more than likely just as dangerous as yours and we travel in teams of 6. If I can't make a call surely the other 5 should be able to... Let's be serious here.
ok and our reply was verizon carrys phones that the manufactors consider themself as "rugged". And my second point was maybe verizon isnt for youi if they dont have the phones you want, however you need to decide what is important, a "rugged" phone with less service or a less "rugged" phone with good service. If there is a phone that is not in demand verizon isnt going to sell it. the market for this phone must be small because verizonais all about makign money. Odviously these "rugged" phones arent making money because there isnt a big enough market for them. Thats not bad management in most buisness places but maybe you know something smart people dont know
