I frequently use a "dry bag" to keep my phones from getting wet. You can search them online. I use mine when I kayak, when I bike, and when I go walking and the weather looks like rain. They come in multiple different sizes. this is the brand that I have. I like it since it comes with both a nylon "necklace" that I can wear around my neck and tuck down my shirt/vest when kayaking so I don't lose it, and the armband when I am biking or walking. the little nipple on the side is to extract the extra air so it is basically vacuum sealed. thus, if the seal is broken, it's obvious when you try to seal it. Simple, easy to use, doesn't void the warranty, can still use it when it's in the bag. I paid around $35 for mine. Hope that helps. I saw the listing on ebay for the little bags that go over the phone, but when I do an internet search regarding the company, all I find are more "ebay" listings. Not so sure about that, but in theory, sounds like a great idea. but if you're into heavy duty water exposure, go with the dry bag!

Wonder if anyone will make a lifeproof type case for it. Would any of you pay $80 for one?
I paid $105 for my Piel Frama hybrid case. Yes, I would pay that to protect my investment. Unfortunately, many manufacturers won't deviate from their fruit phone only options!

Wow that iOttie looks awesome. Pair that with a cordless rechargeable battery(when they come out) and this seems like the perfect solution. I wonder how long the tape lasts before you need to replace it.
ok so after lots of research I've found out 2 top solutions :
Those 2 skins are the best solutions for the Galaxy S3 waterproof issue , of course after the wireless charging will be available it would be perfect.
I've ordered and received today the WINNER skin from here :
WINNER Waterproof Skin For Samsung Galaxy S3 i9300 III Cover Case Bag Pouch New 123320424414 | eBay
It cost 19.99$ however I received 2 skins inside so for extra 5$ comparing to the iOttie I think its better solution .
Very good skin and much stronger then I thought its going to be , also the glue on the back of the sealing tape is very strong and can be multiple use underwater .
Soon I'll go surfing with that and will update you with some pictures ...
It is strange that the Winner brand uses the exact same pictures as the iOttie brand skin, and is only available through ebay. The iOttie comes with two skins as well. It looks like some one just re-branded the iOttie skin. Curious.
Are those waterproof. Looks like the ports are all still open.
