Do you work on a building site? Then get a JCB phone with rubberized outer.
Do you work as a pool attendant? You might be OK, but the Defy had it's waterproof rating downgraded. Some people posted youtube about swimming with it, or in a glass of beer, etc etc. But others were not so lucky.
Personally I love this phone so there's no way I'd intentionally try to damage it. I have dropped it many times with no damage, but half of those times was in a leather case. It's just a slightly tougher, more water resistant phone, that is all.
Actually, you can take calls with it in the rain with no problems. It's just that capacitive screens don't work well with water on them, so take a cloth.
Think of it as what a Nokia 5800 should have been
