JCB Pro-talk Touchscreen Toughphone


We were big fans of JCB's budget Tradesmen, so how does the flagship model fair?

JCB Pro-Talk Toughphone


If an iPhone 4 wouldn't last two minutes in your pocket, this durable handset is targeted at you. Aimed at those who work on building sites or spend a lot of times outdoors, the JCB Pro-Talk Toughphone is the ultimate indestructable mobile phone.

The JCB Pro-Talk Toughphone may not be the most attractive of mobiles, but its rugged appearance goes hand in hand with its functionality. Its chunky casing has been crafted from hardened rubber, which thanks to its IP7 certification, protects the...

Not a happy owner of the JCB Pro talk


In all the years of having mobile phones this one has the worst sound i.e. I cannot hear people talk and they struggle to hear me. I'm presuming its because it is fully waterproof and all the holes are more or less blocked up. If I knew then what I k...

JCB Pro Talk


Good phone for work but the camera is poor and the phone software is very basic. It will not connect to Parrot system in the car via bluetooth.

It is a phone, is it a it's a JCB


I was amazed when I bought this phone. Not only does it let you call and text it's got a two-way radio built in. You're mate doesn't need to buy a Pro-Talk to talk to you via the radio (although I would recommend they do). It also has room for two SIMs...
