My mobile phone floats.....

now that I've just bought a new case. Not one for looking at links myself, if I were you I'd seriously consider a quick flick to this one. www.boxit.net Phil Davies introduced me to this case which, once you've seen it you'll have to agree it's superb. I placed my order with www.wiggle.co.uk and received it the next day. Further, having scoured the net they were by far the cheapest.
Go on, take a look you won't regret it.

I have used one of these for about a year and they work very well.

Cheers Mark

One of the best pieces of kit I've ever bought. Much preferable in my opinion to an Aquapac due to its ability to be clipped via a small carabiner to the buckle on my lifejacket, thus obviating the need to stand there festooned in an array of plastic bags swinging uncontrollably from one's neck.

I have used both aqua pack and box-it and box-it is best, Aqua pack doesn’t protect the phone so wel. The slight downside with box-it is the sound volume is reduced more than with Aqua pack. But at least the phone doesn't get smashed. Des

Bloody hell.......

that's cheap however, if you look at the above site you'll see two options, the one Nick mentions and another at £21.00. The one I got was the more expensive version at £15.99. As I said, I did my research plus, I'm a tight git

You bunch really need to get a life you know, its only a bit of plastic !!! kinda expect this sort of thing from MeMe but you lot should know better

Brilliant piece of kit. Have had one for my Nokia 6610 for over a year now and its flawless, no water ingress and the seals are still perfect. If you have one of the newer Nokias it is advisable to turn loudspeaker on or else use a handsfree kit, using the supplied cover and keep 2 hands on the wheel!!!
Not sure how thats gonna work out at 50kts!! . €50 here in Ireland. We get ripped off for everything, boats, cars, petrol, oil, the list goes on!!

Its only Phil Davies who seems to be running his business 24/7 even from his RIB, how many times have we had to stop so he could negotiate some deal, book a resturant table or check the dogs ok at home sorry mate...... Oh and MeMe i didn't think this sort of technology had reached you northern boys yet, thought you were still into throwing things at each other as a form of communication and hey when mobile technology does reach you please try not to batter and fry them like you lot do with everything else
Anyway i'd have thought your med style rib would have come with a mobile phone already fitted are you telling us it doesn't !!

Rat

PS see you tomorrow Phil
