Great phone, great reception, sturdy and waterproof
6 days ago
Summary: I've used this same model for nearly 5 years, hard use and it was still working, but front screen no longer lit up. Bought new one, synchronized the call list by bluetooth and it's perfect. Works great with bluetooth hands free.
Summary: This one replaces the Rock I had for 4 years and it wasn't charging anymore. I work in construction and need something rugged and the Rock fits my needs. I don't text or so anything fancy with my phones and this is great for me. Verizon no longer markets this phone so I found one on EBay. It is a little bulky and heavy but is built to take abuse.
Summary: 2nd gzone phone for my son. Washed it a couple times with no problems very durable phone perfect for those teenage boys that tend to break everything they touch. While the phone has a few handy features it is also not a phone he will be playing on during class.
I am still waiting for another one to try and take a chance on !

Summary: I personally have had the honor of purchasing a unit as soon as they were available in Hawaii , I also bought 1 for my daughter 6 months later when the price dipped $75.00. It's a GREAT phone, but I am experiencing a string of no luck buying a replacement that would "activate" where I reside .:( So, I am hoping that in the future I mat be able to obtain a replacement phone that works in my area . It's a very rugged and reliable unit .
Summary: I used to have a Droid Razr but I was tired of paying the extra money for a data plan I really didn't need. I decided to go back to a flip phone with no data plan, but I wanted a nice looking good phone, and this is it. It's tough, won't break and looks great. Only issue I have with it is if you aren't talking directly into the microphone, people cannot hear you.
Highly recommend for someone in need of a rugged phone.

Summary: I bought this product in order to have a rugged phone to use on the job. I am a small business owner running a farm. I like that it is waterproof and can take jolts. I had a RAZR Maxx previously and after breaking my second one during normal use on the farm, I decided to go back to a rugged flip phone. I still haven't used all the technology on it (pedometer, compass, star charts, etc.), but have checked them out. I do use a tablet for web, apps, etc.
Summary: This is a great rugged phone, like someone else has said in another review, the calender is a pain to set an alarm with, I mean you can do it, I don't have a problem but it is tedious and cumbersome to try and set an alarm. Another problem I have is the use of the alarm clock, it is very easy to shut it off/silent it by touching the outer touch screen.
Excerpt: This is a great phone if you are in construction or mechanic or even a truck driver. The phone is able to continue to work if you drop it in the toilet or a puddle of rain. I have dropped it off a trailer and it was fine. the phone is designed for someone that can abuse a phone. the camera and everything still works in it and the only problem I have with it is that the battery life is really short but if you don't talk on it a lot you are fine.
Excerpt: The Casio G'z One, cell phone has excellent features from online to everyday use I get what I have paid for. Depending on the contract you sign, depends on the price you pay with verizon. This phone has a wide screen and get it now/internet access with a variety of options. Nevertheless, if you want a phone to meet the everyday rough life living conditions with a nice appearance this is the one for you.
Excerpt: Wow! I didn't think is was possible for a cell phone to possess the qualities it requires to be MY PHONE! I have had my Gzone Boulder for almost a year and I have to say, it is NEAR PERFECT. The only thing this phone lacks is the ability to pick my winning lotto ticket numbers for me. I have put this phone to the test. the first Gzone edition, the original and now this one have both been put to the test. The Julie Test.
