"Great phone"

The good: Good battery life, insanely rugged, good enough camera The bad: its a little slow sometimes but you have to get used to it Summary: I absolutely love this phone. i hate all the phones with full keyboards and that crap, will never have one. this phone is most deffinetly waterproof, i left it in the snow overnight once (by accident) and dropped it so many times in lakes/streams/use in shower. The battery life gets really good after you have it for a while, i can get at least 3 days. the... more...

"Poor Reception"

The good: Holds up to abuse, battery life is good The bad: orange on silver keys are hard to read, Reception is spotty. Summary: Updating software has done nothing to improve the poor reception. My sister and her husband have Motorola phones that get strong signals where I get none. By coincidence, my bro-in-law's union issued to him the same phone- identical problems. We all have Verizon service. Camera was downsized from 2.0 megs to 1.3 megs. Perhaps to make room for bluetooth. Shouldn't... more...

"Gz one boulder"

The good: This phone is so durable it's not even funny. I have put this phone through so much crap and it's still holding up. The keys are slightly higher than the phone which makes it easy to dial without having to search for the keys. The camera is decent, not the greatest ever, but still gets the job done. The ringer is loud which is a plus for heavy sleepers that use their phones as an alarm clock. It's water proof which is great for those of you who can't stop talking or texting even when... more...

"Casio Boulder problems"

The good: Rugged, waterproof, comes with 2 batteries The bad: I had to return it 3 times in two days, was given a replacement each time. Summary: I was very excited when I got the first phone last weekend but after I got home two hours later the phone kept turning itself off every minute. I went back to Verizon thinking I just got a bad phone. They gave me a new one but as they were programming it the new one started doing the same thing. The tech went back to the storeroom and got me a third... more...

"Boulder Freeze Up"

The good: None The bad: All SUCKS BAD Summary: The boulder is the biggest peice of trash I have ever had. The phone locks up and powers off at least 10-12 times a day. The display shows the stupid clock so it fools you into thinking it is still on. When in reality the phone is powered off. The only way to fix it is remove the ^%@#% battery every time it locks up. Do a google search on boulder problems and you will see alot of people have this problem. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PHONE, BUY... more...

"Charging Port Failure"

The good: None The bad: Port breaks too easily Summary: I have had 4 of these phones replaced for the charging port coming loose. I am not rough on phones and anyway this is supposed to be a rugged phone. It is horrible!

"So Far So Good"

The good: Durable, nice looking phone. functions are easy to use. Flashlight is nice and I like the extra battery it comes with. Use the bigger one though, the small one does not last very long. The bad: Camera take good pictures only if the subject is perfectly still. Side buttons were always getting pressed accidentally. I'm getting better at that now. The phone was initially difficult to hear, I put in the small battery for a while and that seemed to do OK, but battery life was poor. I... more...

"Casio Boulder Orange C711ORXB w/ Front Speaker"

The good: Durable, loud, clear, efficiant. The bad: Camera is only 1.3 mega pixels. could be at leat 2mp i think. Summary: I've had this phone for about 2 weeks now, and I saw reviews and testing on youtube videos. I too put mine in water, froze it, dropped it from about 30 feet, etc... you name it. I had to make sure that it could live up to my expectations. Now ive been reading that other people say that the speaker sounds like a tin can. mine sounds loud and clear, somtimes a little... more...

"Like a Rock"

The good: Must be durable. Everyone says so. The bad: Can't hear most calls clearly. Buttons on the side are always accidently getting pushed. Summary: I am not sure this is the same phone I have. Mine is a series 2, sure looks the same though. I couldn't find any reviews for the G'Zone series 2. My company went to Verizon and a lot of these things for the workers a couple of months back. Maybe the Boulder is the new version. Wish mine was the boulder, then this phone would make sense. Since... more...

"Hello? "

The good: Great design. Rugged, waterproof, Like the compass and flashlight. The bad: It has no use as a phone. I cant get a decent signal anywhere. I'm in Chicago, that should not be an issue. I cant drive on any of the area expressways without spotty signal strength. Calls dropped gallore. Even when it gets a signal, it has the poorest sound quality I have ever had in a phone. Its not Verizon tower signal, its the phone. I'm sending it back today. I hope I can reactivate my old... more...

"GzOne Cell Boulder Phone"

The good: I like the snap sound it makes when I close the door. The bad: Receive Quailiy not good Summary: Every call sounds like someone is talking into a sock unless they are on a Bluetooth headset, then it sounds like two socks. Casio missed the most important feature, "receive sound quality" Can I please have my Motorola set back?

"Not Bad...room for improvement"

The good: Looks and Feel are great. The bad: Sound quality has room for improvement. Summary: I fell in love with the look of the phone and the fact that I like to be outdoors. It seems to have the perfect "mountain/rugged" look that has people turning heads saying, " that phone look cool". However, the sound quality is quite an issue. People sound somewhat muffled. From what I am told, people can hear me just fine...hopefully there will be a fix? Maybe..please?

"Lousy sound quality"

The good: Rugged, well made and waterproof The bad: Terrible sound quality, short battery life Summary: I really wanted to like this phone because a rugged, waterproof, no frills cell phone is something I've wished for. I read some negative reviews about the sound quality but thought perhaps the reviewers were just picky. I went to the Verizon store and the clerk claimed it was highly rated by Consumer Reports. Turns out she meant the previous model. This phone is absolute garbage. The sound... more...

"The Phone for Me"

The good: Great looks, feels comfortable in hand, rugged The bad: The sound quality doesn't cut it (horrible) for todays standard Summary: Went to purchase this phone loved everything about it until I tried talking on it. my wife had to turn her phone up all the way to hear me she said I sounded low,on my end she just wasn't clear a little muffled. The salesperson opened another one for us to try thinking it was just a glitch but it sounded pretty much the same. I purchased a different phone... more...

"Casi-No!"

The good: Larger screen than older model gZone The bad: Sound quality, battery life. Summary: My first gZone would not allow me to enter one touch contact numbers into it's data base. Verizon rep said it was a software issue that would be fixed. Returned that phone, got another gZone, same issue. Waited for software patch, never happened. Verizon rep said to wait for the Boulder, all of the issues have been corrected on the Blunder, I mean Boulder. Boulder arrives and yes I can load my one... more...
