I purchased this fone for myself for the exact reason tht it is shock, water and dust proof. Perfect for indian weather conditions. It is really good for these specs but i have been facing a battery problem since the time i have bought it. The battery indicator shows a full battery still the fone switches off by itself due to low battery reason. I charged it for a whole day still the same problem continues. Ifthis problem gets sorted out i think this is one of the best fone's for india :)
Isn't the whole focus of the phone - DURABILITY. If you want a smart phone - buy a smart phone!
sudhan, 21 Jun 2010very......................worst mobile in the world.worst hardwareIt is too expensive for a small low resolution screen 120 x 160 pixels. Very bad! Font for texting is very small too. don't buy this.
I have this as a back up phone and all I can say it serves it's purpose well. I wanted a phone that was tough regardless of the other functions and was not too pricey. Heck, I can whack a mugger on the street with this! It's a solid piece of hardware!
Besides the not too comfortable keypad there's nothing more I can complain about the phone. It's has a good battery life and brilliant sounds, those reviews who said it sounded weak or had short battery must've had a bad unit or second hand unit and they didn't had it replaced immediately, mine was A-OK!
Sometimes, I also get a kick scaring my friends who's not aware of this model by dropping it in a glass of water or the aquarium during parties. I even brag about it while I'm in the shower and having a conversation with them.
So again, if you want a tough phone, this is it...but don't look for other fancy features like wifi, high pixel camera or GPS. This has a big brother, the B2700, maybe that can satisfy your more or the 2mp camera of teh Nokia 3720 Classic, however that is only IP54 certified, this phone is IP57.
i have this as a secondary phone,i use a nokia n73,i just felt that i should have a phone that could withstand shocks.and i was pleasently surprised with the overall design.

Anonymous, 07 Jun 2010how much is it in USD?it was about USD 160 in Indonesia. How can i buy one from Philipina?Go to a reputable mall then buy it for Php6,500.00 with 2gb micro sd card. It is good but the screen is too small and not as good as those with 2.2 inches screen. I was about this one last xmas but the message font is too small also not good for my eyes.

In the Philippines, this still costs about 5,000 pesos plus.

Can anyone help? A few months after I purchased my phone the audible alarm for my appointment reminder stopped working. I sent it back to the supplier who fixed the problem but the phone had all my contacts and future appointments cleared. Now the fault has occured again. I'm not interested sending my phone away every two months to be repaired (and have all my data gone). Has anyone had this problem and do you have a solution?

maliomladinac, 29 May 2010Does someone know a similar phone for similar price? There are no more in sale for my country.... moreThere are a few waterproof/shockproof phones out there, but if you only want a basic one, that is very tough, you should look at Sonim. I would recommend this phone, because it is very tough, and has a good battery life, and is cheap.
the problem of this phone if your using 128k sim card its not working well if keep on hang use only 64k check your simcard first before buying this phone and in the inbox and sent items when starting deleting messages the number save in phonebook will not appear in inbox name and sent items and when you back in message inbox or sent items then it will appear the name of sender save in phonebook but over all the phone is great you costumize everything
