Samsung SCH-R500 Hue
We live in a rural area in Missouri on the fringe of Alltel's service area. I selected the phone because it was reputed to have good call quality and the ability to pull in weak signals. I believe that it does...we actually can use the phone inside our house, whereas with AT&T we could not. However, I got less than 24 hours battery life with the phone. I only made a few brief phone calls, no texting, no internet, and only a couple of photos.
When I talked to my service rep she said that we probably won't get great battery life with any phone because of the area we live in. The battery is being drained because the phone is work...
