Motorola Quantico

 

Motorola is no stranger to the rugged clamshell, with recent handsets like the Motorola Brute i680 for Nextel and the Motorola Tundra for AT&T. So it's no surprise that even regional carrier U.S. Cellular has one of its very own--the Motorola Quantico....

The Motorola Quantico is well-built and durable against a variety of harsh conditions. It has a 1.3-megapixel camera, a music player, A-GPS, and a roomy keypad. It has good call quality as well

The Motorola Quantico's screen could be improved, and it's quite bulky

The Motorola Quantico is a rugged midrange phone that doesn't offer too many surprises, but it makes it up in reliability.

Motorola Quantico (U.S. Cellular)

 

The Quantico is a dual-band, 2G CDMA 1xRTT (850/1900 MHz) device with no Wi-Fi. Voice quality was stellar; crisp, clear, and loud, with no background hiss. Callers said I sounded great, almost as if it was a land line. Motorola's CrystalTalk noise...

Rugged design. Stellar voice quality. Booming speakerphone. Long battery life

Poor camera. Disappointing Web browser and music player. Low screen resolution

The Motorola Quantico is a good phone for field workers and frequent talkers in U.S. Cellular's coverage areas; if that's all you need, it's a fine choice.

Motorola Quantico Cell Phone Review-Another Great Phone

 

When I first saw the Motorola Quantico, I had to laugh a little. Just a little, though-I mean, Quantico? Isn't that the training center for the FBI? What does THAT have to do with a cell phone? But then I picked it up, tried it out a little bit,...

"Phone hinge does not hold up."

 

Piece of junk that started falling apart from day one just like all the other Motorola phone I have owned.

No pros to this phone

Very poor design, bulky, weak hinge, warranty does not cover any advertised features of the phone. Very slow at texting, often times does not put a space or a letter when using itap. Whole phone lags when the more text messages you have on it.

"Tough phone that is working great after a two years!"

 

Love this phone. I would love to switch it for a tough, large screen, smartphone but they don't make one. The text prediction takes some adjustment and it sometimes suggest the most off the wall words instead of suggesting the most commonly used and...

Most other phones I owned didn't survive this long except for the tiny little Motorola Vader I had many, many years ago. The Quantico is waterproof (accidental), rollover proof (accidental), shock proof (accidental). Bluetooth excellent.

I see complaints about ITAP text prediction. One: You CAN turn it off! Two: It DOESN'T like it when you can't spell in the first place. I don't have that problem but it does act oddly. Ex: Why it suggests Moses first instead of noses is beyond me.

Pretty good phone overall.

 

Works great, to all the people having a problem with the 0 key in texting just hold it down for a sec. Kinda like the speed dial. Music player is great and has a gps if needed and takes a sd card. Wish it came in a few colors but oh well. Live at the...

Rugged, great signal, Motorola quality and semi waterproof. I tried it out in the rain the other day made a call and never even worried about it

could have the back plate a little more secure, seems a little loose at the bottom of it the US cellular people said it was like that and not to worry, and a little thicker compared to a lot of phones

The best non-smart phone US Cellular offers it seems.

 

This product is probably the best 'cheap' phone from US Cellular, but it takes patience to use due to the often-illogical interface.

Some innovations not in other 'cheap' phones. The ease of entering nos. for dates / times instead of scrolling. I drop phones all the time, so I appreciate the durability. I use the calendar, and it's nice to have that programmed as a main key
