Summary: i got the jcb pro talk to replace a sonim land rover . WORST MISTAKE I EVER MADE EVER .. it has turned out to be the worst mistake i ever made and that includes marrying my first wife. the list after 2 weeks the earpiece started to rattle and got worse and worse till i could hardly hear any thing then the back keeps falling off ,the reason is it is built cheaply it has plastic screw that do not tighten up you don't tighten then up all the way they come loose you do try...
Summary: I bought this phone 1 year and get angry every time I use it, as does everyone else who is unfortunate enough to use it. It is virtually impossible to hear even with the volume turned to maximum. The camera is absolute rubbish, and the text function is totally illogical. The worst 250 pounds I've ever spent without a doubt!!
Summary: i bought this to replace my ageing samsung B2100 but i returned the first because the buttons didnt light properly. when i got the replacement, the problem was similar on the replacement but on different buttons (couldnt be botherd to return). Huge phone with difficulty getting it into my Snickers WORK trousers phone pocket (not good for a WORK phone). the sound from thr ear peice is awfull,, sounds like some one is shouting into an empty barrel !!
Summary: i reccomend this phone if you keep breaking your phone, i was knocked off my motorbike and the only thing that survived undammaged was the jcb toughphone,the bike repair estimate was 21,000 pounds but at least i could still phone the ambulance, reccomended.
Summary: I bought this phone as it was advertised to be unbreakable - guess what - I broke it. Not as you might expect by dropping it, running a jcb over it etc. No it broke when I put the charge lead in and the internal connector shattered and I could no longer charge the unit! I was happy to put up with its less than endearing size and ugliness of the unit for the robustness it offered also the sound quality is poor for a unit of this price.
A few minor niggles but otherwise incredibly tough and functional

Summary: When my previous phone became waterlogged after being in a waterproof zipped pocket for several hours, in a gale force downpour, I decided I really did need a properly waterproof phone. My other requirements were ease of use, reasonably large buttons and a loud enough ring to hear over the sound of machinery. A camera would be a nice-to-have but is not essential. Enter the JCB Pro-talk Toughphone. After a month's use what do I think?
