Basic and Tradie Phones
Need a trade or workforce phone?
We have graded the phones most suitable for trade use as LIGHT, MEDIUM or HEAVY based on their durability. Within those grades, more expensive phones will generally have more features and performance than cheaper phones.
VoWiFi and VoLTE - What does this mean? These are the new HD-calling options being rolled out nationwide. Voice Over WiFi (VoWiFi or 'WiFi Calling') is a fantastic option for rural users, currently only available on 2Degrees. It means that if you live or work in premises with bad or non-existent mobile coverage, your phone will automatically receive and make high definition phone calls over your wifi network, without having to dial any special codes. Voice Over LTE (VoLTE) is Vodafone's new 4G-calling system, giving you better quality phone calls wherever the service is available.
Push-to-Talk (PTT) PTT puts RT functionality on your phone, allowing team members to communicate directly as if using a handheld radio unit. PTT uses wifi or cellular bandwidth, not UHF. You can use Google Playstore apps like Zello, or integrate with industry-level PTT solutions like Tait which allow phones to talk to mobile radios as well. Some of our phones like Inrico T320 and Uniwa F40 are designed to look and feel like a handheld radio, while most of our other phones have a customisable side button that operates the PTT system.
LIGHT: these units are glued shut (hermetically sealed), meaning they are essentially 'disposable' phones because it is generally cheaper to replace them than fix them. There are two price options - trade only or with warranty - and the warranty price reflects the servicing costs. IDEAL FOR: workers who don't need powerful or heavy duty phones
MEDIUM: These models are tougher than the glued-shut range, with the added advantage that they are repairable. That means they are expected to last longer and have more power and features than the cheaper phones. IDEAL FOR: businesses needing higher performance and serviceability.
HEAVY DUTY: These models are the toughest we have, and they are all serviceable. IDEAL FOR: those who are prone to breaking their screens, or who need big batteries

The Outdoor Phone Store is New Zealand's biggest retailer of rugged outdoor phones. You can save hundreds off the price of comparable models from the big telco's. If we don't offer a model you've seen elsewhere, it's because we don't think it's good or reliable enough. Examples of brands we've dropped include Doogee and VK. The phones above are the best options in their category, and that's the expertise we bring you. We offer an exclusive hand-picked collection of phones that perform, not five pages of shiny underpowered models that don't. Click on one of the images to see full specs, photo gallery, torture test videos and customer reviews of these rugged outdoor phones. Or pick an option from the Outdoor Phone Store dropdown menu
Fastest Delivery: Fastest delivery in NZ. Other suppliers offer free shipping in "usually" two weeks; we ship by express courier in days. Fastest Tech Support: The Outdoor Phone Store is the only rugged phone retailer that can service your phone quickly in NZ, not slowly in China. We are the only NZ retailer with parts held locally. Best NZ Warranty: A full 12 months NZ warranty, not 12 months "manufacturer's" warranty or a cut-and-run six months or 7-day warranty. Parts: we keep parts in Auckland so you can get priority service. NZ-owned: We're a 100% Kiwi business, and GST-registered. Aftersales Support: You'll get exclusive updates on tips and tricks for using your new phones. NZ's #1 rugged phone retailer: as ranked by Amazon's global web traffic analyzer, Alexa. No other rugged phone retailer in NZ comes close. There's a very good reason for that.
Ian. I am so impressed with your phone, I have been telling people to get on your website and buy one. - Alan J
Best phone I have ever had! Good service.
Good warranty! - Grant T
Thank you very much for your great service and for selling such fantastic phones, I love it already. - Liz P
Best decision I've made for a long time! Great technical support, help is only a phone call away, I've taken photos underwater, dropped it and it has dealt with all the abuse this hunter, kayak fishing tradie painter can throw at it....and the new Blackview looks even better. Do not hesitate to deal with the genuine agents in NZ , Outdoor Phone Store. - Ant Neill, Facebook
Join the switch to NZ's best outdoor phones!

I just recently bought a BV9700 Pro from you and it's fantastic. Thank you.

Most grateful shout out to this company - they helped my daughter with a problem on her phone that has been ongoing for months & even after realising we had called the wrong company for support (bought from a similar named company originally) there was no hesitation in walking us through the steps we needed to take even though it was complicated & took 10 minutes. Incredibly patient and helpful - thank you!
