Oh cool. My husband has been wanting one of those, but he got an Ozone instead. Does that particular phone have a camera?
Yes it does and it isn't as good as the Droid, but it has a good 7 our of 10 picture quality. You can take pictures at 1280x960 with it and that is the best setting. No problem with storage, has the micro card. Video on it is fair to poor. That all I can say about that.

Wow! A rather distinctive look. Guess that makes it easier to find when you can't remember where you put it down... You have 650 hours? How long has this phone been on the market?

The Casio G'zOne Rock C731 conforms to the MIL-STD-810F ruggedness standard, which makes it perfect for users who don't look after their phones. It sports resistance against water, humidity, shock, vibration, dust, solar radiation, salt fog and altitude, as well as high and low temperature storage.
so a perfect work phone
Yes this phone is really for someone that is pretty hard on phones. Many companies use them with in their service employee fleets. It has push to talk too.
Being retired I take everywhere from camping to fishing and off road exploring and many times it has fallen off the table or into the creek or last month it fell into the water bowl for the dog. If I would of done those things to any other phone it would of been trash. It may be a dumb phone, but it's one tough dumb phone.

One of my brother's just got this device. Very sturdy/reliable. Works well. Sound quality sounds a bit tin-canny, but that has everything to do with all of the waterproofing/ruggedizing that was done to the device. Just sounds a bit further away. My brother who got this phone (not Caleb) has always worked physical labor jobs and this is right up his alley. He has dropped it a hundred times, run over it, got sawdust on it, etc. :)

" left it in a cup of water overnight"
Seen many YouTube videos of people doing all sorts of torch er to these phones. They seem to hold up to a lot abuse. As the videos seem to prove. Simple phones yes, but pretty sturdy.
Word of warning to those that use the extended battery if you drop it hard. (Boulder)The battery lock wheel will break. The standard battery will take a very strong impact with no problem. I found that out on some reviews on the subject. So if you use the extended battery be warned..........No Butter fingers.

you are absolutely correct about the extended batteries,but thats only the ones with the rotary lock mechanism..which most have..the exilim has a different design so im good with my extended battery..only issue my case cover wont fit now,oh well
