Durrable Squaddy proof mobile

Anybody got the perfect squaddy comms???

After a mobile to replace a recently stolen one. Doesn't have to have all the new mod cons like Thermal imaging and side winders.

Ideally just a Splash proof semi drop proof cheerful thing with plenty of battery milage.

Arrsers, dont be ashamed of your mobile.

You cant buy anything thats SQUADDIE PROOF you should know that.
Agreed. I had one of those armoured, waterproof Nokia things that was the answer to all prayers... :D

until some sod managed to run over it with a LR 8O

Completely fcuked.
Whatever you do. Don't get the Motorola Razr V3, its given me nothing but problems, so I chucked it in the nearby resevoir. Then bought another for £30. Again - problems but I need a phone so...

Does it get picture messages???

Nah i'd use one of them but i actually want to be able to communicate with other people.

C/S 0A has an old Nokia Brick from nineteen canteen however for some reason it wont accept my sim.

I've got nice shiny all singing, all dancing, V3. Only got it cos my Nokia 3100 has gone tempermental after years of service.If you can find a 3100, on ebay or such like, I would recommend it.Even managed to immerse mine in water, wiped it dry and it continued to work. :D

edited to add: as for the brick have you thought of getting it unlocked?
Nokia 6310i. Tri-band, can take multiple droppage, battery lasts for ages and charges quickly, everybody on the planet has a Nokia charger hanging around somewhere, no bits sticking out to break off etc etc.

Have to get off fleabay these days... http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Retrofone

OK, can't watch porn, take pics or vids, but as a phone (you know, one of those things for talking to people on) it's the mutts. I replaced mine with a V3 and they are complete cack.
If you want a basic phone, the Motorola F3 is good. It costas about £15 new with £10 credit on it.
It has -
no camera
no colour screen
no dotmatrix screen.
no voice activation
no worries if it gets broken

You even get cash back if you buy it via www.quidco.co.uk
Get one of those natty builders phones off ebay, rubberised water/splah proof, definitely bounce proof

No camera, no colour, no gimmicks just a phoning and texting
sony ericsson k750i, all the mod cons, battery lasts a lifetime, use it specifically for on exercise, covered in dents and scratches, and dropped in many of puddles, but still works a treat. wouldn't be without it!
