Every phone I have lost has been for the same reason, water. There are time where I have to take a call and I am out in the middle of nowhere. I answer the call knowing I have only a little bit of time and the phone is going to soon be toast. I sometimes have to take a call while in the rain, once it was snow that killed the phone. I am reluctant to get an advanced phone that is going to die when I am in the middle of no where and the rain is coming down. I think if memory serves me that I am on phone #6 due to rain or snow. I should ask this in a phone forum but I am here at the moment. Solutions?
