Just buy a 2G phone with built-in radio.
Since as you said 3G connection is not always available so a 3G phone will not always be useful, why waste your money for a 3G phone? Use a basic phone.

Nanocoating would be a far better way to waterproof a phone than using annoying breakable flaps that needs to be removed everytime headphones are plugged in and needs be open in the pants pocket while listening to music...!

Sony do not have good cameras on their "flagships", only good specs on paper but very bad performance in real life!

Sony can also put a faster GPU or CPU in his devise if the wanted, but Sony know that is useless because so much power is not needed and that is already proven
Believe me SG S3 is more powerful and better design than iPhone 5/Lumia 900 etc. Better grip feel better and light weight. And I feel SG S4 looks more better than SG S3

Or maybe you will make a call under the water, or browse the internet or send SMS while under the water. LOL!
I am not eligible for upgrade till this coming November, may wait till the S 5. I have my updated S2, Still a good phone and yes I wish they had a more rugged phone. Water proof, would be real nice. Can you get the waterproof case. And no warranty for water damage.
