Casio (in partnership with UTStarcom) has established itself as a fine manufacturer of extremely durable phones with its G’zOne line and the Boulder continues that tradition.

The Boulder is a logical choice for people with demanding professions that keep them in less than ideal environmental conditions. The G’zOne Boulder is military-certified to withstand the elements.

In addition to its rugged build, the Boulder runs at 3G speeds, has a 1.3MP camera, Push-to-Talk, an electronic compass and is wired for V cast Video, VZ Navigator and V Cast Music with Rhapsody. (The aforementioned are services offered through Verizon Wireless and are available for an additional monthly fee).

Regarding the Push-to-Talk (PTT) feature, it’s important to point out that this is a new and improved PTT and should not be confused with the previous PTT offered through Verizon Wireless. People looking at this phone will often be outside and should be aware that the PTT service is considerably better than its prior incarnation.

The Boulder rounds out its feature set with Bluetooth, voice dialing capability, speakerphone, alarm, calendar, video recorder and web access. Talk Time is rated at up to 207 minutes up to 212 hours of standby time.

With the Boulder you can browse the web, send/receive SMS and MMS, take pictures and record video, all without worrying that a strong breeze or a little rain will ruin your phone.

If you need a tough phone, Casio has a solution for you.

Decent looking handset that is designed for abuse

from MobileBurn (over 5 years ago)

The Casio G'zOne Boulder is a decent looking handset that is designed for abuse. It's tough to argue with a phone that can be submerged in water and still make and receive phone calls. Support for Verizon's high-speed EV-DO network and a 1.3 megapixel camera with microSD card slot offer plenty of multimedia... More

Angular, candy colored handset

from Wired (over 6 years ago)

I'm not going to mince words. This phone is orange. Really orange. Like in the same obnoxious vein as the color options for a new Hummer. But if you can overlook this (as I eventually did), then you'll probably enjoy Casio's new G'zOne, dubbed the "Boulder." That's right - this angular, candy colored... More

Worst Phone EVER

(about 1 year ago)

I had a LG Chocolate touch screen phone, and switched because my contract was up, bad mistake. At first the phone was good, but then something went wrong with the speaker and who ever I talked to on the phone sounded staticky, and I gave it a week and it that problem disappeared. Not only that but it... More

Awsome phone

(over 2 years ago)

I am really abuse my it is always getting scratched up and it says you can run it over with a small car and this was 100% true because I ran my phone over with a 3/4 ton Chevy that weighs around 6000 pounds and all it did was break the front screen that is under another piece that must protect it every... More

I LOVE THIS PHONE! It ROCKS!!

(over 2 years ago)

Please make this into a smart phone! When I got this phone over 2 1/2 years ago, I tried 2 kill it! I ran over it with my car, I dropped it in a glass of coke- called it, answered it, rinsed it off & it still worked. So I let my then teething son, chew on it, slobber on it & throw it around... More

This thing is simply amazing

(over 3 years ago)

I got this phone when I got my contract renewed 2009. I was coming from an old LG VX8300 and it was REALLY banged up. It had even got a little wet once and still worked. So I definetely considered I needed something durable, and this is what I chose. The phone is water proof. I never tested that capability... More

I wish I could give this zero stars.

from Amazon (over 3 years ago)

This phone absolutely fell apart in a year and a half. Many of the things that went wrong (such as the battery pack lock breaking) were known manufacturing defects, but since after a year it was no longer under warranty I was told that nothing could be done. It is at a year and nine months now and... More

Almost a great phone...

from Amazon (over 4 years ago)

Im on my 3rd Boulder. The phone is definitely waterproof, heat resistant and shock proof. However, on the last 3 i have had usually the first thing to go is the circular lock on the back that holds in the battery (a little electrical tape to hold the battery in and i can live with that). But, a little... More

Awsome phone, short battery life

from Amazon (over 4 years ago)

This phone works great. I have had no problems hearing anyone on it. I am unhappy about the battery life it doesn't seem to last long. It has been droped and child tested and survived we love taking this phone with us on the raft and fishing and not needing to worrying about it getting wet.
