    Has anyone tried this yet? I know they have done it for the iphone, right here
    but I was wondering if anybody has done it for any other phones. I have a bionic I may test it on before I potentially wreck my GS3, but it looks like a very nice way to waterproof your phone without spending 100 dollars sending it out to liquipel. Could also be used for laptops to prevent coffee spills and what not.

    Well I bought some today and I'm going to put it on my bionic and see if it holds up. Will be posting a video in a few hours.

    The phone is currently in a bag of rice and won't boot. I did subject to being underwater for an extended period of time, and the coating rubs off fairly easy. If you were to completely disassemble your phone and coat the entire circuit board it would work much better. For what it is though, it will definitely save your phone from a quick plunge in a pool or toilet.

    Phone boots but still moisture inside. Led indicator is going crazy. The never wet coating can be peeled right off. I only recommend using it on the circuitry if it's going to be used at all.

    How long did you let it dry before dunking the phone?
    Rustoleum products tout "ready in x number of hours/minutes " but if you read the fine print it's usually at least 24 hours to fully cure and adhere on anything other than wood based products

    It said wait at least thirty minutes before subjecting to water. I waited 45 minutes. I also only used one coat of top coat abd they recommended multiple coats. I may do my gs3, not sure yet.
