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 below 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. See the proof yourself! No other rugged phone retailer in NZ comes close. There's a very good reason for that.

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

Outdoor phones: alternatives
We're putting the choice in your hands. Customers can choose one of these models at a special 'trade-only/no warranty' low price, or you can choose 'full retail with warranty and CGA' as a private buyer, or you can choose 'full retail trade', which comes with our 12 month warranty.
What our customers are saying...
It's not something we shout about, but we've been in the mobile phone business for a very long time. Investigate's smartphone division is run by Ian and Heidi Wishart; Heidi's background in telecommunications for Bellsouth Mobile and Clear, and Ian's connection to the establishment of NZ's first mobile phone network (Telecom 025) proved invaluable when the couple began operating a Vodafone affiliate in 1999. Since then we've sold a wide range of phones and tablets to clients all over NZ. Today, we specialise in providing handsets that work on ALL the networks - Spark, Vodafone and 2Degrees, giving you options you can't get from the telcos' own stores. All phones come with a 12 month genuine NZ service warranty (not a 'we'll send it to China and call you in three months' warranty), and our prices include GST for tax deductibility for business use.
