    In the past month I have gone through 3 cell phones bringing the total to around 10 in 2 years. I really don't do anything crazy with them I guess I just handle them too rough. But back to the point of the thread, does anyone know if verizon makes a durable, water proof/resistant cell phone? I did a google search and came across one LG (canU 502S) but the article is a year old and I couldn't find anything on LGs website about it.

    LINK FIXED

    LG Busts Out Waterproof Cellphone - Gizmodo

    Any suggestions, experiences, etc. are welcome. And at this point price really isn't an option. I'll pay 1k for a phone that will outlast the plan its on.

    link doesnt work.. my phones always seem to take a crap on me too.. i think its a marketing thing.. your phone breaks before the contract is up and you have to buy one at full price.. blah, i hate cellphones.. but i dont know what i'd do without mine, just so used to having it..

    No I do break them, it's rare that they just stop working. My phones hit the ground often and get hit with water if not almost totally submerged. This canU 502S would solve all my problems.

    Fucking sweet dude. I'm up for a new phone in March and now I know EXACTLY which one I'm getting. Hopefully my friends don't run out of extra cell phones til then.

    I wonder why this didnt come up when I searched google for a water resistant cell phone, idk. Nice find.

    And DAS BOOT with BLUE MOON FTW!!

    I have a nextel Milspec phone and I hate it. The problems aren't on the outside, it's on the inside. The battery lasts me 20 minutes now, no joke. And last week it crashed.

    And it has no features, not even a calculator. It makes phone calls. And it's really loud too.

    The LG's seem to suck. Motorola's last for me but the phone is slow. It goes thru the menus and options VERY slow.

    The Nokia's I had were great :)

    Nextel SUCKS... Their coverage is great in SOME areas, but SUCKS in most... Not to mention i hate that damn chirp, and all the ASSHOLES that don't know how to use the PRIVATE function.

    I didn't do the whole boot with the Blue Moon, about half (the whole thing holds 3 beers). If it were Keystone light that wasn't ice cold I would have no problem though. My friend Marvin can do it in 5 seconds flat. It's crazy to watch.
