I love my cell phone. I've seen a Sanyo sales rep doing a demo. All of the time that he was talking about the phone, he was standing on it. It's built for U.S. Military specs for dust, vibration and shock. It doesn't have a camera, and a ton of bells and whistles, but it's a great at doing what I want it to do....be a phone. I haven't dropped it into a pond...yet, but in my business phones get wet. I've had mine for about 18 months so far and it's working great. I've seen three other contractors pick one up for themselves. One of them switched all of his company cell phones to this one.
