Cool Waterproof Phone

About a month ago my phone went into the Water, and it has not been the same since. I am due for my free every two years phone, so I ordered the new Casio Boulder. It's supposed to be waterproof, freee proof etc etc. So, hopefully I don't have to worry about breaking this one. Does anyone else have it?

I believe Lowwall has that phone, and Rusty Mustads.

One of my friends used to have that phone, you can put it in a glass of beer and call it and it will still work.

Tried the latest Verizon version of this phone a couple months ago. **TERRIBLE** call quality. This is with the most recent firmware. Returned the phone and bought a non-waterproof one with a box of heavy duty ziplock bags.

It's weird, I have read the reviews and there are handful of people who say that yet there are tons who say the quality is superb. I am supposed to receive the phone today, with 30 days to return it. I will let everyone know how it does. I am looking forward to not worrying about water etc. anymore...

Does that include the beer, or just the phone when you bought it?
