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 [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Mse7exkH_4]Casio Ravine Review - Bootcamp - YouTube[/ame] [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qGCmd0bprjg]Casio Ravine (THROWING test) - YouTube[/ame] i guess i wont be needing a new one anytime soon.
