Product Description

Amazon.com

If this isn't the phone Navy SEALs use, it should be. Not only is the G'zOne waterproof, it can remain underwater for a full-30 minutes, and still maintain all of its functionality. That means if you haven't drowned after 30 minutes underwater, you can use the phone's built-in GPS feature and flashlight to find out just how lost you really are.


Super rugged, super powerful. This phone is made for a rough and tumble life that's also fully connected. See the phone in 3-D (requires Flash).
Ruggedized to military standards, this super-tough clamshell is not only waterproof, it's shock resistant, and dust resistant, too. Non-tough guy features include a 2-megapixel camera, EV-DO high-speed data capabilities, a QVGA display, a speakerphone, a built-in mobile Web 2.0 browser, and more.

Design
The G'zOne features a ruggedized clamshell design with a large 240 x 320 color display with support for a whopping 65,000 colors--perfect for watching V Cast content. The outside of the clamshell features a supplementary monochrome LCD screen that can display incoming call information, battery life, signal strength, current date and time, stopwatch functions, and more. The protected camera lens and flash reside on the front cover, just above the external display, while up/down volume controls and a camera control button are on the right side of the phone. Most of the phone's features and on-screen menus are controlled by a five-way center button on the handset's backlit control pad. The G'zOne also features a flashlight, which is housed on the back of the phone, meanwhile, a unique carrying clip is built into the top of the clamshell.

Calling Features
The G'zOne's 31 MB of built in memory is more than enough to support up to 500 entries in the phone's address book. Meanwhile, a voice dialing feature makes calling friends and associates as easy as saying their names, while the built-in speakerphone allows you to talk handsfree. The phone also comes with built-in polyphonic ringtones and a vibrating alert. More ringtones can be downloaded via Verizon's Get It Now service. Ringtones can be assigned to specific callers so you don't have to look at the phone to know who's calling, or you can match pictures with callers to identify them. Lastly, the G'zOne's GPS location technology pinpoints your exact location when you dial 911.



A design that screams for action.
Messaging, Internet and Tools
With support for the EV-DO high-speed data standard, the G'zOne is fully compatible with Verizon's V Cast service. With V Cast, you can download and stream high-quality video. Need news and weather? Get the latest Accuweather forecast delivered right to your handset, or stream CNN news headlines. ESPN sports updates, entertainment news from E!, and even Sesame Street content for the kids, are all available.

With support for sending and receiving text, picture and video messages, the G'zOne has all the bases covered when it comes to messaging, too. Predictive text entry technology, which makes it easier for people to enter words and text on handsets, is built into the unit--a plus for mobile email and text messaging users.

Getting on the Internet anywhere is easy with the G'zOne. Use the G'zOne's built in Web browser and Verizon's Mobile Web package to read and send e-mails, exchange instant messages and view your favorite web content. Verizon's Get It Now wireless download service is also fully compatible with the G'zOne. This pay-per-download service features application downloads, games and productivity tools. You can also personalize your handset with ringtone downloads using the Get It Now service.

The G'zOne ships with a number of handy tools including a calendar, an alarm clock, a calculator, a flashlight and a GPS feature that enables VZ Navigator functionality. VZ Navigator provides heads-up, voice-prompted turn-by-turn directions (with auto-rerouting if you miss a turn); local search of nearly fourteen million points of interest (POIs) in the U.S.A.; and detailed color maps that can be quickly panned and zoomed. With VZ Navigator you will know where you are, know what's around you, and know how to get there.

Imaging and Entertainment
While the G'zOne is a great platform for watching V Cast video content, it can also capture video that can be shared with your friends and associates via video messaging. Of course, you can also use the camera to capture still pictures, too. The camera features 2-megapixel resolution, and an LED flash.

EV-DO Wireless Broadband Coverage

Vital Statistics
The G'zOne weighs 5.30 ounces and measures 4.08 x 2.04 x 1.17 inches. Its lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 3.38 hours of digital talk time, and up to 170 hours of digital standby time. It runs on the 850/1900 MHz CDMA/EV-DO frequencies. The phone comes with a one year limited warranty.

Product Description

The Verizon Wireless G'zOne Type-V is designed to perform in the toughest of conditions. In addition to being Certified to MIL-Standard 810F for Water, Dust, and Shock Resistance, this device sports a 2.0 Megapixel Camera for capturing PIX and FLIX, Voice Activated Dialing, and a Speakerphone.

5.0 out of 5 stars A phone that can be thrown... January 30, 2007
I am not a cell phone addict. I just want it to work, and to put up with rough handling better than the wet Kleenex garbage phones I've had up to now. I typically have gotten about 6 months from a phone before it looks like it owed the Mafia money. This phone is the antidote to that. I've had it since it first came out, and it hasn't got so much as a scratch. You can read all about its specs, but this is the toughest, most dependable phone I've ever had. It's a really high quality item, and when it gets dirty, I just wash it off in the sink. The battery consistently lasts at least 3 days between charges, it has a good camera with lots of storage space, and the greatest thing is that the camera flash becomes a very good flashlight, which has come in handy so many times I lost count. I used to despise cell phones but had to have them. I won't leave the house without this one, and if it ever croaks (which I doubt) I'll get another one just like it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Built for the Real World April 28, 2007
With my Cingular contract coming up for expiration, I was looking for a replacement phone and provider - especially with AT&T's <ugh> purchase of Bellsouth. About the best of both worlds.

The carrier stuff first. I dropped AT&T Wireless years ago because of lousy customer service. Cingular bought them. Cingular's customer service is so overbloated with bureaucratic nonsense spouted by mimimum wage idiots, I was ready to jump months ago...not to mention a history of user lawsuits and a factually-questionable "fewest dropped calls" campaign. Enuf already.

Verizon is repeatedly rated tops nationally, even though they hobble the features of some of their phones.

AllTel didn't have much of a selection.

Sprint/Nextel - despite tough phones - wasn't even a contender, continually rated the worst customer service nationwide.

The G'zone was the clincher for Verizon. This phone's tough. It has a nice substantial weight and feel. Keys and screen are easy to read.

Honestly, too, I'm not one to be another RAZR clone. The phones are too flimsy for my taste.

Minuses for some: no bluetooth nor MP3 (so, 4 out of 5). But, heck, it's supposed to be just a bloody PHONE, not a Vista laptop! And I've never been anxious to become another Borg with a Blinking Blue Bluetooth ear implant.

Things I love in particular: big ol' time readout, 2MP camera (useful for my line of work) and flashlight (which, as one reviewer pointed out, gets more use that I'd have imagined). Call quality is excellent, even while I notice my Cingular friends are dropping calls. Speaker is clear. Battery life is good, going 7-10 days without a recharge. Hint: extend the life of the battery by not constantly charging it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin' March 3, 2007
I have had the GZone for 1 week and I absolutely love it. I have had many phones and I think this surpasses them so far. It has a built in LED light that is a lifesaver. The phone takes excellent pictures. The only downfall (if you want to call it that) is I have been used to a keyboard for years and now I feel "text" challanged. I will overcome that with time and practice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Casio G'zOne September 3, 2007
I like:
It's waterproof and unattractive to the masses. Who cares? I can ride my bike in the rain with no worries about a cell phone. If it falls, no worries. I like it, unlike most electronic devices, I don't have to baby it. It's big, easy to do that 'shoulder-to-ear' thing, and fits in my hand like a proper telephone. Alot of people don't like big, but think about how big your razr is when you put a case with a clip on it and think about it again, it really isn't that big.

I dislike:
Speaker sounds a bit muffled, but through months of use it hasn't really bothered me. The menu system is a bit muddled, and most things are geared for people using the internet stuff, but I just got it because it's a phone.

Conclusion:
It's good. If you can handle slight imperfections, it is worth the price. Mind you, the price I paid was 100 dollars, and even that felt expensive to me. I feel it was a sound investment, and hope to use it for many years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars No lifejacket needed here!!! May 24, 2007
OK like other reviewers, I really don't care what the phone looks like or if it has a gazillion features, it just needs to WORK. I am a firefighter (water) and own a swimming pool service company as a side business. (Lots of water) I was missing my customers calls, due to the fact that my last couple of phones went swimming. Of course water and electronics don't mix. Leaving the phone in the truck just was not working. I was still missing calls. Now I can carry the phone on the job and not worry about getting it wet or dropping it on the concrete deck. (Most phones don't bounce well, either) Overall I am pleased with the phone, it is a little heavy, and somewhat bigger than most. The display area is great, even out in the bright sun, I can still see who is calling. I have a Casio divers watch that I bought in 1985. I have replaced the battery twice, if this phone lasts half that long then I will be well pleased.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Other Phone Even Compare... June 23, 2007
I was in the market for looking for new phones for my boyfriend and I. And, after looking at the description for the Verizon G'zOne, I thought I would give this phone a shot. I dedided on this phone, because my boyfriend has broken every single phone that he is previously owned. I've been using this phone for several months, and I have to say that it is the best phone that I've every owned. One of the reason that I really like the phone is because of how big the screen & buttons are and how comfortable it is to hold. After using this phone, it makes other phones look like toy phones that children play with for fun. I look at other peoples' phones and they seem absolutely tiny compared to mine. My boyfriend was thrilled with this phone and immediately started testing its capabilities by accidently dropping it everywhere. Not a scratch in sight on his phone. If we were talking about cars, it would be the Hummer of all phones. But, seriously, his friends really liked the phone as well. One of his friends goes hiking a lot and commented on how a phone like his would really be useful in the great outdoors. His grandfather liked the phone because of how the buttons are a good size and not tiny like other phones. I know that there is an upgrade to this phone, but I don't know how a phone like this could get any better. I might to stick to this model the next time we need to renew our contract. Well, anyhow, this is really a great phone and would make a great gift for dads.
