I had a Casio Commando before the Maxx & loved the fact that it could get wet without any worry about it breaking. I play on a boat or surf board a lot & my phones always get wet. The Casios were nice that I didn't ever have to worry about that being a problem. Before buying the Maxx I found numerous Youtube videos where they were being water tested successfully. Just wondering how many guys in this crowd have done the same thing.... whether it be on purpose or by accident.
