Default So my cellphone finally broke

ive had the base model LG flip phone for about 3 years now its been dropped kicked stepped on and lived in a sweaty pocket the whole time. it finally gave up due to sweat corrosion.

i went to the verizon store today to get a new LG and telling the rep i needed a sturdy phone he pointed out the casio ravine. he said it armored and waterproof. i said sold ill take it.

so i started digging up some info on this phone and i discovered its called "the world's toughest cellphone"

a little digging on youtube turned up some strange peeps abusing the hell out of these phones.

the part where he runs over it with a truck is pretty impressive



i guess i wont be needing a new one anytime soon.

We just got one of those at work; my boss ran over our old phone with a golf cart.

You should put it through some real world tests yourself. Something that might happen by accident for example. Shoot it!
