Default good "phone" phones?

I am going to be getting another regular cellphone, because my moto razer keeps losing my network when i flip it closed The one thing is that I drop my phone a lot, so something with solid construction is a must. Please recommend as many models as possible. Stuff like QWERTY keypad is not a must, and I will not be using a data plan.

Thanks

Cell phones are not made to be dropped a lot you know that's maybe why there made out of plastic. Another thing being made of plastic helps the makers make more money because of all the people that cannot hold on to there phones.

Friend at work showed me his flip phone that is 100% water proof and purposely built to be abused. I can try and ask him what it is when I get back to work late Tues.

i understand they are not meant to be dropped, but some phones are "hardier" than others. That's kindda what I am getting at.

If you are looking for a regular phone (not "smart") one of the following might work for you.

Apparently you are needing something hardy, and those are relatively hardy. It is also a newer review so those items likely will be on the market.

My dad wants that Tundra phone and we looked everywhere for it. Seems that nobody is selling it anymore with a contact. It must be a recent phase out because most store clerks had no idea it was no longer available.
