Also, the screen won't come on from time to time causing me to have to restart the phone. Not sure if that is a phone issue or an OS issue, but it's annoying all the same. I am currently planning on going back to a rugged flip phone since I don't really use the smart phone features.

QTR, 09 Feb 2015Are u facing any problem with the SD card?I have 32G SD card on my s50 phote but I cannot save anything on it and the internal memory of the phone is almost full now. What will I do
I have just bought Cat S50 and now I am finding out about SD problem. Should I return it or are there any answers to this issue?
I have the Cat B15 and I love this phone. I've put it in a drain pan full of oil, threw it across my shop, and dropped it from the top of a semi trailer. I'm looking to find a new phone to with stand the same torture, and want to know if the S50 is a good choice to go with?
As an Active Duty Military man, I'm not satisfied with this phone. It is water proof, but if dropped at all the covers that seal the USB port and SIM card comes out. Also, my 1 year old dropped the phone on concrete about 5 feet and the screen is now cracked. This phone has no external buttons on the front, it causes me to constantly but dial people all the time, its frustrating. The method of searching for contacts for call purposes vs text purposes is aggravating also. This phone was a waste of money compared to what is available these days.
The Cat S50 is a reliable good android Phone. I only got one Question regarding the SD Card. Mine works fine with a micro sd 64 gb from samsung. THe only problem ist with the standard music app from android and vlc the music is starts for about a few seconds, than buffering for 10-15 sec. and returning. This happens every time. I earse the cache before, shutting down all aps. My thougth was, maybe there is a prolem with the cache, or a whole album is to big, but when seeing a video from the sd no lags or Problems appear. Does anyone know a Soulution? (btw when playing music from the phone memory it does not buffering)

It seems that those cards prevent the hatch from closing tightly, after removing 1mm, the hatch closes perfectly. N-joy

Rich, 19 Feb 2015Well peep that own this phone will know what I'm talking- sim and sd slot is a biggest joke!!!... moreI solved the sim/sd hatch issue with a small piece of isolation tape. That hatch is a joke! Also som bugs in settings when set to my native language, but I can live with that. The pre-installed google-camera APP is poor. Camera works better with other apps.
Design is cool, operations are smooth, wifi is excellent, gsm connection is supreme. Love that Android OS is almost untouched!
But Bullit Mobile (whoom actually made the phone) should feel pretty embarrassed by that sim/sd hatch!!
Worst phone I ever had!
I like durable models (Sony Xperia go, Samsung B2100 Xplorer, Nokia 5140i etc.) and I am ready because of it to endure some minor inconvenience in using of such phones, but CAT S50 is beyond any criticism!!!
I ordered this phone and have had it for about 2 weeks now. I bragged so much about it to my fellow active duty military people. Now I want to give it away. The tabs that should keep the ports sealed are not that great, they seem to not seat properly. The time has changed for no reason and I cannot change it. I got up late because the alarm did not sound and when I notice the phone's time, it said the time was 20:40 on the 6th day of February when actually it was 0600 February 20. I've tried to correct this issue and have not figured it out. The world time is correct. I'm in Florida and it is set for eastern time so I don't know what else to do to fix this. Huge disappointment.
Well peep that own this phone will know what I'm talking- sim and sd slot is a biggest joke!!! CAT you have to fire whole test management team! Basically phone ruggedness is useless because after smallest drop it almost pops out! I'M SURE WATER WILL COME INTO THIS PHONE. And I mean droping phone from your trousers pocket onto carpet not droping from five store BUILDING on concrete. Camera - also makes me laugh but I don't care about camera, this phone was build for other purposes but sadly CAT you have to recall all phones and build phone that does what you claim it does or change this slot closing design. If you ask me - buy this phone - no way! Idea of this phone is brilliant - size, looks and rest are good but because of this slot closing problem I simply afraid to drop into watter, it must not be like that. P. S noticed a lot of complains about sd card not working but on my phone sd card 64 GB class 10 works no problem.
