    So is it water proof or water resistant?

    I believe the technical specifications say waterproof to something like 5ft. However I will not be willing to test that. I will stick to the idea IF water gets dripped on it it will be ok.

    Before you do that, Please read the Small Print! I was told, if you do get water damage not covered under warranty! Told by an Verizon Rep. Can someone confirm it?

    There's no way to prove you didn't take it below the maximum depth and so any water damage protection would be completely at the discretion of Samsung (not Verizon), IMHO.

    Seems the only way you'd have a fighting chance (if you really didn't take it below 5') is if Consumer Reports verified they have a similar situation, and/or you video it being measured always above 5' and less than 30 minutes.
