JCB Tradesman Toughphone

The JCB Tradesman Toughphone is the first phone that claims to float on water. Of course, this means the phone is waterproof. There are several videos on the internet that prove this fact.

So if you’re one of those people who constantly drops their phone in water, this could very well be the phone for you. It's also a great idea for plumbers because I'm sure there have been many of people in that profession who have dropped many phones in toilets. It’s also dust proof which makes it the perfect phone for someone in the construction business. And it’s also not bad on the wallet.

What We Like

This device, like others in the Toughphone series, is black and yellow.  However, this model doesn't have as much yellow on it as the other models so it looks slightly different. And since the Tradesman is made by JCB (the company who makes heavy duty machinery) you know it's going to be a very durable phone.

The case of the phone is similar to other cases that people buy to put on their phones to make them sturdier. However, the cases that are on the Toughphones seem to be more sturdy that those.  And also, those other cases don't make the phone waterproof and they certainly don't make the phone float.This phone has a 1.44 inch CSTN screen.

Now, it doesn’t have a lot of extras but it does have Bluetooth, a torch, fm radio, sms, and a one year warranty. It also has email capability. So you may not be able to surf the internet but you will at least be able to check your email. It also has an sd card slot where you can add memory.

This phone may not be one you'd want to take with you everywhere, but it's the best phone to take with you to work. You can leave your expensive smartphone at home and use it on your own time.  That way you don't have to worry about dropping your smartphone at work and ruining it.  After all, they are just not as durable as the Toughphones.

What We Don't Like

This device also has 180 minutes of talk time and 130 hours of standby time. The ringtones are loud so you don’t have to worry about missing a call due to not being able to hear it ringing. The reception is also great with this phone. That's something that's important whenever you are on a job site. You want your boss to be able to get in touch with you as needed.


This device also stores up to 500 phone numbers so you have plenty of room for all of your personal and business contacts. If you’re looking for a sturdy phone to take with you while you work this phone just may be the one you’re looking for.  Or if you're just looking for a durable phone that can take being dropped (even in water) then I would say that it could be just what you're looking for in a new phone.

Sturdy. that is all this phone is. Nothing more. It has a lot to improve on in terms of features. But in terms of basic functions like texting and calling, it is really dependable.

Some people may think that features are the only things that matter when it comes to choosing the best phones in the market. They do not know how wrong they are. This phone boasts of duarability that no other phones could offer. It is not only dust and water proof, it also floats too! This feature came very handy when we went hiking to the woods over the weekend and my phone fell to the river. I had no problems find it.

I have this phone and I have a problem I cannot send or received any text message and the extra features like the blue tooth and FM radio is not working properly. I thought this phone is good but for my experience it’s a disappointed phone.

Sorry to hear your losses. I <a href="">unndestard</a> how you feel upset. It must be devastating for you. As a medical doctor, I can imagine how much serious your parents' conditions were. I believe even though you were stand-by 24/7 next to them, you can't help too much. I experienced several situations at work. Finally, we need to make them comfortable while waiting to die. Basically, there is a little or no role of family members in caring of terminally ill patients. Basically they are not expert. But I think you and your siblings had done every things you could do for your parents during their last days. I hope that will help you to be consolable. Even god can't stop to die when time come.For me, I want to die in Britain. Here funeral service is much better than in Burma. I can die in dignity and I can enjoy a decent funeral service. :)

It really is occasionally called & #3 4; the automobile & #3 4;amassing, when the insurance Quotes Chimp opts never to fix your automobile except to pay for its worth to you. When the firm totals your vehicle, you get exactly what the automobile is &#3 4;worth&#3 4; in the available marketeven if (as-is frequently true) this sum of money is significantly less than it costs to truly change the automobile.
