I am strongly considering making the move to a smart phone. My basic phone (ravine) has been working great for 3 1/2 years and still is. Therefore I was considering getting the commando 4g. The people at verizon say stay away from it, the reviews are mixed. So I need some help. I need a reliable phone, I already know the commandos shortcomings in power and camera, I can live with that. But is the phone reliable? Am I going to end up with a constantly glitchy or phone that shuts off randomly? I like the commando, but if I have to I'll give up ruggedness for reliability and get a droid mini or some such. I don't plan to root the phone so if thats what has to be done to make it reliable I'll look for a different phone. Thanks again for your help.
