Motorola Barrage (Verizon Wireless)


Motorola has a long history of creating durable cell phones, but with the occasional exception, they've ended up at Nextel. As we've long encouraged Moto to spread the rugged love, we were glad to see it launch the Motorola Barrage for Verizon...

The Motorola Barrage has a durable design and a functional feature set that includes push-to-talk. Photo and call quality are satisfactory

The Motorola Barrage's 3G connection is a bit slow, and video and music quality are unimpressive

The Motorola Barrage offers Verizon Wireless customers a rugged push-to-talk phone with admirable call quality.

Motorola Barrage V860 (Verizon Wireless)


If you have butterfingers and you're looking for a Verizon voice phone, the Motorola Barrage is a good choice. The Barrage can stand up to dunking, slipping, and knocking around, though not true torture, and it offers a decent design and good call...

Good call quality. Long battery life. Waterproof

Not super rugged. Below average video and camera phone ; Watch the Motorola Barrage V860

The Barrage offers a good balance of call quality and moderate toughness, but it isn't an extremely rugged phone.

Motorola Barrage Reviewed


The Motorola Barrage is a very durable phone, and is a perfect choice for people who are usually hard on their phones or love the outdoors. The Motorola Barrage offers a rich feature set and very good call, audio and video quality.

The Motorola Barrage serves as a phone, music player and navigation device. It is a little bulky but that will not be an issue unless good design is the most important thing to you. This is really intended as a tough outdoors device and it has a...

Motorola Barrage


There's a specific market for this device - construction workers, those that need push-to-talk capabilities, and those that are hard on their phones. That being said, the device still offers features that could make it attractive to people not in that...

Excellent Rugged No-Frills Phone


Extremely rugged construction, yes - it is waterproof, shock resistant, good call quality, decent camera, good price, when charged correctly, the battery lasts a long time (10-14 days), however the battery does not respond well to short or quick charging

Buttons are harder to press than most phones, music player requires a Rhapsody account, bulky, cover flips shut too easily when answering calls, lack of an integrated belt clip

Like the phone I am hard on phones this one has lasted.


All I use my phone for is talking and texting. The battery will last about week for about 10 months. Then with in a week the battery will lose the charge in less than a day. The good thing is I can go to Verizon and get a new one because it was less...

I have dropped it from 10-15ft on more than one occasion. I like the sound when you are on the phone. It feel good when using it

I am on my third battery
