Default Cell Phones

I am currently using the

This thing is great, I cant break it. Its been dropped into a lake and took me 15 min to find it, it still works 3 months later. I drop it out the truck door when I get out all the time. I take it into crawlspaces with me, sometimes I use the built in flashlight. This is the toughest phone to date IMO. Ive dropped pvc glue all over it, answered it, and got glue in my ear. Great Phone.

What kind of phone are you Real Working Plumbers using? I dont care what the pencil pushers are using just the guys in the field.

The cheapest Nokia i can buy. My phone company uses a sim card.....Walamart use to sell the prepaid phones that I could put my service plan sim card into. I bought about 5 or 6 of them about 4 years ago and I'm down to my last phone. They cost about 24.00 each. Might check out the one your using since you like it so much.

I am using one like yours, Green. It cost 400 bucks, but it is rugged. Worth it to me.

I use a Blackberry Bold with an Otterbox phone case. My 2nd Blackberry and 2nd Otterbox case. Love them alot. Took out my old phone from the Otterbox case and it was in NEW condition.

I wonder what people are thinking about the Motorola Tundra, I guess it is to be pretty tough like the one you got and the Rugby.

In Christ,

Song Dog

I use a Blackberry Storm, I love it. I used to go with the heavy duty indestructible phones and break them in a year anyways. So i figured since I use the equipment insurance on the rugged phones I may as well have one that helps me be more productive.

If I ever meet that guy that says "Can you hear me now?" I am going to kick him in the nuts. Verizon service is not as good as they brag. I love my storm and the apps I use with it. Its just the Verizon cell service even before I got my storm and was using a normal cell by them I had lots of dropped calls.
