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.
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.
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.

Getting on the Internet anywhere is easy with the G'zOne.

With VZ Navigator you will know where you are, know what's around you, and know how to get there.
