Ok I'm not sure what to look for in this department because it's never been a problem before. I'm a new EMT and am in the market for a new phone for myself and one for my fiancee. I want a phone that is going to be very rugged, can be dropped, can take chemical and bodily spills etc. As for her phone I am going to probably get a Samsung a930 if anyone wants to give me an opinion on that one too The only non-negotiable part of the phone is it HAS to be verizon because I get much better signal. The second part is that I need GOOD reception. Some of my runs are to the back ass woods and I need a phone that can call from there. Other than that I dont need alot of features, maybe a camera but not required.
