Rugby II vs. Tundra

I have been using the Motorola Tundra for over one year.  AT&T recently sent me a Rugby II as a replacement phone after I damaged my Tundra. 

 

The Tundra is clearly a better phone.  The Rugby II has poor cellular signal reception / penetration into buildings.  In my home and where I work, my cellular signal with my Tundra is all 5 bars. The Rugby II drops to 1-2 bars and sometimes I have no service inside certain buildings.  The other day, I was in a building at my job where the Tundra had all 5 bars and the Rugby II had none - no service.

 

The Tundra takes larger pictures but some could be clearer.  The Rugby II's snapshot camera takes a clear picture but the picture and the objects in them are too small; the zoom function is poor and there is no zoom and pan function.

 

Unlke the Rugby II, the Tundra is larger and easier to handle. I did not have any trouble accidentally bumping buttoms. I am sending the Rugby II back and getting another Tundra

The Rugby II fits in the same category as the Tundra. Both are rugged, durable phones.

 

Based on your post, is it the Tundra that you are wanting to switch back to?
