    Re: Ridgid cell phone

    i too have switched back to the nextel i355 phone.

    it's bullet proof and the ringer is the best.

    bla-bla-bla-bla-blah

    i wish it had a camera though as it would make it simple to grab a photo or 2.

      Maybe you blokes should look at this phone.
      It is a Sonim XP 1 it is virtually unbreakable and here they will give you a new one at the store if you break it within three years.
      They are base model phones but hopefully I will get more than a year out of it.

        never heard of this phone company. not sure if they're imported to the usa?

        i'll attach one to the front of my pipe puller and drag it through the next ditch while it's on to hear the progress of the pipe breaking

        send me one, i'll put it through the ultimate test

A phone that can stand to be in a construction environment. A TOUGH phone. The Ridgid Job Site phone

          See, therein lies the problem. We'd end up getting a Ridgid phone, yes, but it would end up being designed as a MaxSelect phone, able to use all types of the 18 or 24 volt batteries. Good luck fitting that in your pocket!

              The i355 speakerphone has plenty of volume, and the mic is sensitive enough I can set in down on the desk and walk around the office and talk to someone.

              My previous was the i58sr, which the current model i615 looks to be pretty much the same thing. A plus for the i355 was I could use the batteries from the i58sr, so now I have three batteries, enough to last me a week. I keep one in the charger, one I carry as a spare, and one in the phone.

              we use this phone and it is big but it is tough
              i like that if you are out of phone service you can switch the phone to direct talk and use it like a walkie talkie

                And to this day, I still like this idea about a Ridgid phone. My contract ends this month, so Ridgid, I'm ready!!!!!

                  The Bla-bla-bla=blah is for everyone except the wife, I use a different ring tone for her. Yes, a camera would be nice but I can live w/o it. I'd rather have Bluetooth in this model than a camera though.

                  Rick, you need to clean out your PMs, it's full and no one can send you anything, but maybe that's how you want it.

Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."

I swear I'll only touch the big red button when you tell me to, and not a second sooner! Hey, I'll even bring you some yummy Canadian I.M.P.'s to make you feel full and content, while I play with the toys (we don't get enough play time up here, and not enough with the good stuff!). Come on Bob. Please. With sugar and RDX and Astrolite on top? Even a quaint little cherry bomb. Come on, Bob!!!! PPPPPLLLLLLEEEEEAAAASSSSSEEEEE!!!!!!!!
