    Just my personal opinion, but I never mix my electronics with water. Even if a phone manufacturer said it was "waterproof," I would be in no hurry to test it.

    The only phones I would use in a downpour are the Sony Xperia or the Samsung SGS5. Those are the only water resistant phones that I know of. Nothing else is water resistant.
    I don't use my phones in pouring rain.

    I found this case on Amazon, and it had great reviews and 4 1/2 stars!
    http://www.amazon.com/iPhone-SUPCASE...mUvbUpU2519888

    Its only $15.99! The case is pretty bulky but what do you expect, its water resistant with a built in screen protector.
    Hope this helps!

    Why would u use any electronic in a heavy downpour ? It's common sense that it's not gonna end well on your behalf.

    There are no waterproof phones. There are cases that are waterproof, and phones that are somewhat water-resistant. However, electronics and water don't mix. Ever. And why am I struggling to believe that using your phone in the rain ruined it? Also, if it was raining that hard, WHY were you trying to use your phone. Sounds like someone lacks the common sense to come in out of the rain.

    At least he wasn't tethered to his MBP via cable at the time. OP thought wifi was laggy - wait til THAT gets rain soaked.

    He's lying about that also but it's relatively easy to walk in and get to the Genius Bar without an appointment. I accomplished that a few days ago.

    I can just imagine you standing in the midst of a torrential downpour trying to connect your iPad to your iPhone via a cable... Trust me, I don't really care how you use your tech. Clearly you march to a different drummer.

    My work is done here. I can't take it any more.
