I just put mine in a waterproof box so I don't have to carry a chunky brick around the rest of the year.

Whilst I had never damaged a mobile whilst at sea, I have always been extremely aware of the possibility and therefore always put in some sort container. This in many ways makes it somewhat difficult to use/hear.

However, on my contract renewal I was offered the Sonim Landrover phone. Whilst it is a bit brick like, I have found it does everything I want it to do and with a 3 year unconditional warranty, I dont think I can go wrong. Kids have already tried to drown it, they did not succeed and now want to hit it with a large hammer! I have said they can do it when it is 2 years and 11 months old ....

yeah the SONIM is "kick ass" however it is like a brick and for everyday use would be a pain atleast for me..... the samsung is nice cause i don't need to switch sim cards.... between a day to day phone and my phone for boating.
stick the sonim in your pocket and you look like you've got a permanent hard on. ;-)

Looks a good phone but a bit basic.

I just use freezer bags - they are very hi-tec - you can adjust them to get the phone to float or sink!!!
