Motorola Tundra VA76r

 

Whether you're an extreme sports fan, outdoorsy person, an outdoor worker or just a klutz, and you have to stay a large posse to keep in contact with, the aptly-named Motorola Tundra is your phone. It's a rugged model that meets 810F U.S. Military...

Push-to-Talk; excellent sound quality and volume; 3G worldphone connectivity; bright 2.2-inch LCD screen

Poor camera; no SMS threading; unattractive; clunky and heavy

The Tundra provides a surprisingly robust set of communication, workplace and entertainment applications...

Motorola Tundra VA76r (AT&T)

 

Though it added the Samsung Rugby to its lineup last fall, AT&T hasn't carried a huge selection of rugged phones. That's why we were glad to see the Motorola Tundra VA76r make its debut at CES 2009. In many ways the Tundra is a Nextel phone wrapped up...

The Motorola Tundra VA76r offers a sturdy design, easy-to-use controls, and a brilliant display. Call quality is fantastic

The Motorola Tundra VA76r suffers from poor photo quality and variable streaming video

The durable Motorola Tundra VA76r succeeds admirably at making calls, but its multimedia experience doesn't measure up.

Motorola Tundra

 

If you think today's cell phones aren't manly enough, then take a look at the Motorola Tundra, AT&T's latest handset for the push-to-talk Nextel set. The military-spec-certified Tundra is resistant to dust, rain, humidity, vibration, and extreme...

Rugged and attractive. Stellar reception. Loud speakerphone. Top-notch numeric keypad. Plenty of Web, multimedia, and GPS options

Large for a flip phone. External antenna. Poor camera

The Tundra sets the bar for tough, field-ready devices, and gives AT&T Push-To-Talk subscribers a viable alternative to Nextel.

Super-tough AT&T phone with excellent call quality

 

The Motorola Tundra VA76r is a push-to-talk (PTT) cell phone from AT&T, meaning it can be used like an old fashioned walkie-talkie between similarly equipped phones. As befits a PTT phone, the Tundra is designed for heavy-duty use. The durable...

Extremely durable, effective noise cancelation, excellent call quality and reception, push-to-talk capability

Nonstandard headphone jack, small external screen, mediocre battery life, bulky

Review: Motorola VA76r Tundra

 

Motorola offers up a rugged PTT phone for AT&T. The Tundra can take a serious beating and still get the job done. Check out Phone Scoop's full review and video tour.

3 years, Still works.

 

I purchased this rugged phone after my 3rd phone in 3 years stopped working. I work in an industrial setting, and my phones are exposed to bumps, dust and steel shavings on a daily basis. After 6 months of use, one morning the phone wouldn't turn back...

Well designed buttons for not-so-dainty fingers ; Good call quality ; It has survived

Limited internet access

Best Communication Phone Made

 

Best communication phone I have ever owned. Excellent sound. Receives signal where other cells do not. If you're wanting to surf the internet, this phone is not for you. If you are looking for the best communication phone, ptt, speaker, sound quality,...

Outstanding Signal and Reception, Great Speakers

Not Good for Surfing the Internet

Consumer review by:

Using it for almost 2 years - very disappointed.

 

If in the market for a rugged phone, there are better ones out there. Motorola seems to have forgotten about this phone - and doesn't seem to care to fix the obvious problems with a firmware/software update. I've never had a phone with so little...

main display screen is good. Keypad is good

Poor software. No software or firmware upgrades. Processor not powerful enough - very slow to transition between screens/options, etc. Camera is awful. Requires reboots often. External screen is useless
