Casio G’zOne Ravine Review

0. phoneArena posted on 21 Oct 2010, 09:50

The new Casio G’zOne Ravine C751 is a traditional flip-phone in appearance that replaces the Casio Rock, though most of the features are retained, such as the good PTT quality and rugged Military design...

Is the blue tooth in the Ravine the same as the Rock. I recently purchased the Brigade and like the features but the blue tooth is not compatible with my 2009 Chevy Traverse. The Rock appears on GM's site as compatible with the Traverse but does not mention the Ravine. Any help would be appreciated...

yes accroding to an internal Verizon equipment guide the Rock and Ravine share the same internal bluetooth.

Pretty half-baked review, to be honest. It felt rushed, especially when the G'ZGear section didn't even include screenshots of every tool packaged with the device.

Writing errors including 'through' instead of 'throw'? Terrible.

Is this phone intrinsically/explosion safe? I work in a refinery and cell phones have to be intrinsically safe.

this biggest junk pile i have paid so much for. the battery charger port. the freezing up .
battery life is very poor even with the expensive extended battery. i have never had more problems with a phone like this one. i hate it and the sad part it was used very gently has no scratches or anything just a nice looking piece of junk.

The first Casio G'One Ravine phone screen froze several times. I buy the insurance and traded for another unit. After two months the current one froze. Each time I have to remove the battery to reboot the phone. Battery standby life is ok, battery usage life is poor. The phone's operation is slower than other phones I have used. For both phones there is a lag time from the moment a button is pressed till that particular operation begins or ends. If I can trade for a comparable LG flip I will, if not then I'll be stuck with another Ravine.

Nobody could hear me talk on this phone-because the talk into mic is up close the ear piece ! I only had this phone a couple days-took it back & got a samsung convoy 2.
(After a big hassle with verizon) It will be att&t for me the next time!

I had 3 Ravine's and all of them had trouble with power cycling and that was all within about 1 weeks time. I made a upgrade to the Ravine from the Casio G'Zone type S that I have had for about 4 years. I have gone back to my old phone and replaced my battery.

I have had the Ravine for several weeks and have had no problems whatsoever. Voice, bluetooth and ear volume is fine. The speaker is also very good.

My old Gz was to scratched to read anymore ,so I got a new Ravine.
Big mistake and I'am stuck with it. My old one had a battery life of
about 5 to 7 days and the new one needs to be charged daily. I have
replaced the phone once already. Also other Verizon stores will
not help you since you didn't purchase tthe phone from them. All they want is to sell another phone.
