  Ruggedized Cell phones 
 Date Written 
Johnny Hinkle Mar 28, 2006, 12:52pm EST Report Abuse
who makes ruggedized cell phones for the US market? I have been trying for years(unsuccessfully) to find one that I can use with Verizon, or some other US carrier. At one time Nokia offered a rugged phone that was water resistant, and it even had a built in flashlight. A phone like that would be SWEEEET! So where do I find one like this. I am extremely hard on my phones, and have to buy 1 every 2yrs, mostly because I break the antennea off them, or I trash the battery to phone connction. I don't care about cameras, or video, or music, or downloadable ring tones, I just want a phone that will survive mutiple 6-10 ft drops.

I did those searches(I hadn't thought of that before), and came up with nothing worthwhile. The Military search got me 2 giants, and the construction search got me nothing. Question still stands, where do I get a ruggedized cell phone?
