Samsung Rugby Review


The Samsung Rugby SGH-A837 holds on like a real champ as AT&T's one and only rugged phone in the PTT series. Even though the phone needs an update or changes on some of its features, the Samsung Rugby is still a fine choice phone for calling and...

This is a great phone. The only problem I have is that the front display does not show Day, Date and Month. When I called technical support they say that this is software problem for Rugby phone and they are working on it.
