    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.

    Sorry winds hit thumb down by accident. They make a keyboard model of it that is just as tough.

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

    Get a Rugby

    My Samsung Rugby has been in the washing machine three times, still works great.

    The Rugby is mil-spec. That should appeal to a fellow AR geek.

    ya it does :) i thought all cellphones were flimsy pieces of junk. i bought this one purely cuz the rep said it was waterproof. in the past i just got whatever cost 50$ or less

    Hmmmm.............I have Verizon, too. I'll have to look into this phone. Actually, more for my daughter. She is tough on her phones.
