Javier teiszerski, 12 Jun 2016Hi martin, i'm javier from rosario- santa fe. Do you have a cat s50 ? Where did you buy it? Is... moreHell no ! Its extremely bad and very expwnsive that doesnt live to its standards and expertise. Its bulky yet weak and has a very bad display it will embarras you if you pull it out in public
Worst phone I've ever owned, it started falling apart after a week, and I cracked the screen in a month just by keeping it in my pocket at work with the screen facing in. When I tried to get the phone fix the customer service was horrible, and I eventually just gave up and bought another phone.
My husband purchased this phone in January 2016 and it has never worked. First he couldn't answer any calls coming in. Took it into the store where we purchased it and they were puzzled too but eventually got it working. Then he couldn't make any calls so again took it to the store and again they got it working after an hour of trying and leaving it with them. One day it got wet and so we took it back into the store and they sent it for repairs. They repair center would not repair it even though it was still under warranty. We were told to ensure the clip on the side is always closed which is always has been or it wouldn't be covered. The CAT site says it is "waterproof for up to 60 seconds (1 min) at a depth of 3.5ft" Well it isn't. It was not in 3.5ft of water and not for 1 min. When it got wet, it was picked up within 2 seconds. This is a very expensive phone that doesn't live up to what it is marketed as. The site also says it is military standard. If the military is using a similar phone, they better get another. The CAT phone sucks. I contacted CAT and told them of the situation but have not heard back yet. Don't buy this phone.
Might be rugged but don't get it wet. I'm a bartender and dropped my Cat s50c into a tub of iced bottled beers. Phone wasn't in there more than 10 seconds and the screen went black. Back of the phone was hot and a short while later could see condensation in the back camera lens. Mil Spec? Not. Going back to a Kyocera Brigadier,
The most expensive phone I ever bought costing $4300tt phone blank out exactly three months from the day I received it and never comes back on before the phone was getting very very not when making a call cat s50 it not a good phone to buy the worst phone I ever buy mike
Hi Guys, I need help. Phone CATS50. I turned on TALKBACK option. I can't find option Turn OFF. In settings menu I don't have option Accessibility. Who knows where I can find it. It's killing me. Thanks in advance
First the good: this phone has a decent screen and is reasonably rugged.
Now the bad: the phone freezes up all the time with a dark screen sometimes in the middle of a call, it is very glitchy and loses GPS signal in the middle of town, won't connect to cell towers unless I turn it on and of repeatedly. Also the camera is just really poor quality, too. Because it is running on an older OS, many apps do not work properly.
At any given point, my kids' i phones pull up data much quicker, and we're all on the same plan.
Finally because I wasn't able to buy this phone through T Mobile, I have virtually no support. The CAT support is truly useless. They have no idea how the phone works.
I can't wait to get a different phone, this POS just stresses my day out to no end. Smart phones are supposed to help us not hurt us.
This is the worst phone I have ever owned. The phone won't hold a charge, it not as rugged as they say. The support is useless they gave me a bogus number. They don't sell but one charger for the phone.u give them your number and they are supposed to call u back and they don't.this phone is a joke. My 4s battery last longer than this phone. Do it homework I don't advise getting this phone.if they helped me out I might think differently.but their attitude is once they sell the phone it your problem. I would get a cheap phone from Walmart before I would get this phone. I am not even going to give it the lowest rating. good luck....
Has anyone had trouble with the touch screen..?
Mine was perfectly fine till one day reset by his own then start restarting over and over again the touch screen stop responding and battery went out in a couple of hours with the phone really hot.
It has been 5 months since I bought it and havent heard from CAT either becouse they coudent get the parts here...
THE WORST cell phone I have ever bought.
I took it 5 times in almost a year that i own it to the shop where bought it in Cyprus. Two times went off by itself one time battery life 10 hours(before it goes almost a week) and two times microphone failure. Finally I bought the Samsung xcover3 and am gonna sent them reference letter with my lawyer.

likki95, 12 Apr 2016Is there any way for hard reset the cat s50? Yes, press down volume with power button simultaneously.

They advertise "wet finger tracking" but I feel a better name would be "Damp finger tracking." I have experienced these problems with 3 separate phones, so I doubt I've just had a faulty phone.
My S50 worked great. For a little while. The waterproofing seems good, and dropping it normally doesn't break it, however I did have it fall about 2 feet and shatter once. I'm actually on my third S50, still under the original warranty. Twice it has been frozen with a blank screen (possibly off?) and had to be shipped back to Cat. Best part is, 4 or 5 months will go by, and neither me nor my carrier hear back from Cat. My carrier has given me a free phone twice because of this. As far as general day to day usage, I hope y
