I have to chime in on this thread guys.

My phone, a Samsung SCH-U900, has been in the water many times. Usually in my pocket but once plunged straight in and was fetched off of the bottom of the river. Hardly even keeps it from working and no lasting damage.

The plunge to the bottom only kept it out of action for an hour and a half.

It's a great phone IMO, has a 3.0 megapixel camera (the best I could afford at the time - almost two years ago - in a phone) and comes with a wrist strap for when those silly fish strike while you're on the phone!

I hate to give it up but I'm considering one of them smart phones... we'll see.

I have shut off our cell phones. I just can't justify $120 a month for two phones anymore. I have bought a pre-paid for emergencies that the fiance keeps in her vehicle.

Understandable. Ours are our only phones.

I do know that I've been tempted to chuck mine into the water myself when it rings in on my peaceful fishing (if I can hear it over the river!) but I probably wouldn't come home if it didn't!

Yeah, I just moved up to Northern VT where the service is questionable at best and often in French, so it was a no brainer, LOL
