    Nope, I'm not sure I'll ever quite be ready to write a note in the shower or anything...

    I had mine out in the rain today. It survived. But Ive done that with other phones that had no water proofing and never had any issues either. So...I guess thats not impressive.

    IMO that might depend on what the rain is like...

    Haha, I have thought about it but not going to attempt it. With my luck it would deteriorate when it hit water or something.

    After carefully reading the warranty to make sure that it was covered (yep as long as you do not exceed the rating), I dunked it in the sink full of water to freak the wife out.

    No issues and it was a great surprise to see that the phone lets you know (via a notification) that you got it wet and to dry it off before charging.

    My hearing came back after a couple of days from the ^%**&^% chewing I got for that one :)
