Alright so depending on which company you have your obama phone through, you're going to be running on a subsidiary of different carriers. For Assurance Wireless (virgin mobile/sprint) and any AT&T carrier, this is the phone you should be getting:


The Sprint version is the 'Sonim XP Strike' and the AT&T version is the 'Sonim BOLT'

These dumb phones are basically indestructible. They're waterproof, shock proof, dust proof, crush proof. They can take a hell of a beating. They exceed DoD specs, and were meant to be used by people with really, really shitty jobs.

Best of all, you can pick one up in excellent condition for about $10 on eBay.

Unfortunately, you won't be able to swap your SIM out to this handset with some obama phone carriers. Please look here and check:
