I switched from Sprint to AT&T to get a decent submersible cell phone. I' a marina manager and having outdoor electronics that won't die from a dunking is important. Not every day outdoors is sunny and dry. There are storms, some very heavy weather, water - LOTS of water - and drops, bumps and binds. So far, no complaints. This is a smart phone but not with a touch screen like my girlfreind's sissy phone. I'm on a learning curve with this phone, but luckily I think it'll last long enough for me to finally learn all the secrets and tricks to operate all (most of?) the functions. Less
