30 minute dunk into 3 feet of water. Where do they come up with that??? Why do they not just say water resistant???? DUH!
Because a 30 minute dunk is water proof, not resistant. Resistant is that...
if someone throws it into the deep end of the pool and complains it doesnt work after 29 minutes theyre covered.
"compatible w/networks operated by ... MetroPCS & Cricket" ??
Also, it's already be stated the US Cellular is offering this device.
Just wondering. Was there a reason to call out Metro & Cricket?
Rich, you need to correct this
US Cellular is selling this as of today.
