This is an excellent one for those who work on a building site, or even just for the clumsy!! These were put in a cement mixer full of sand, ran over by some heavy duty machinery, dropped from a height and sprayed with water and still worked (see the video at http://www.jcbphone.co.uk).
So, if you have gone through several phones this year, or lost all of your contacts when your phone got ran over by a digger, then I guess that this is for you!! Play.com have it for just £99.99. Delivery is free!! QuidCo offer 4% cashback - that's £4 on this purchase.
The JCB Tough Phone is as hard as nails and takes no messin from anyone. You can throw bricks at it, drop it in cement, even run over it in a car and it will still ring. It's also very loud with dual speakers so you can have a conversion in a noisy environment. This is a proper JCB, bright yellow and resistant to shock, dust, water and impacts. It doesnt have a camera, you cant browse the web and there are no jingly ringtones - fantastic. This is a phone that fills the niche market for really, really tough phones. Its ideal for the building trade, or for anyone who wants a solid, rugged mobile that gets the job done with no fancy extras.
