    i'm sure the people who are on 10-4 are excited about these but man were these murdered with an ugly stick…

    Yep not the prettiest but military specs are not easily found. My phone continually gets rough housed so if the pro got those specs and presuming it runs Win Mobile 6.1 I'll give it closer scrutiny. At least Bell seems aware selection is an issue thank GOD.

    Don't even think about buying this phone (if you want to call it that). I had it in my shirt pocket for 2 days–the external display broke, so much for durabilty and if I wasn't within a couple of miles of a tower, the reception was terrible–kept cutting out. Don't waste your money.
