Summary: Awesome product this phone was the greatest thing I've gotten better than what happened when I tried buying this on eBay I got spammed I was eternally grateful when I got it from amazon. This phone has everything I wanted to fit my needs. It has a compass and much more.
Excerpt: I previously owned the Boulder for almost 2 years and in comparison this phone is HORRIBLE. Casio makes great cellular products, but the Ravine is a huge disappointment. The texting software has multiple problems. When typing, letters sometimes appear invisible and there is always lag.
Pros: durable and sturdy construction
Cons: texting lags, texting software has many glitches
Excerpt: I got the ravine and loved it until the software started to act up, invisible letters when texting or it'll hop half way up the inbox or into a different in-box. lag happens sometimes too,other then messaging the phone is great haven't had a problem with it, great phone.
Summary: It's leather so, it's tough, but thin leather, so it doesn't add appreciable bulk. The fit is very precious with cut-outs for the front screen, mic, temperature sensor, speaker, etc. in all the right places.
Excerpt: I bought this phone in late November and managed to break the hinge within 3 weeks. Verizon refused to replace it, which is understandable as I didn't opt for the insurance. I simply expected a bit more durability from the phone.
Summary: I found my phone in the washer today when I was moving my clothes to the dryer. It made it all the way through the wash cycle and it was still on when I found it. I have had this phone for 3+ years, great basic phone.
Summary: I purchased this phone to replace the exact same phone I have because it quit working after 3 years. These are very tough easy to use phones. I am very hard on cell phones and this takes the abuse. I had a concern when it arrived, it was not in the original box, not sure why.
