Default Let's make our voices heard!

So I'm sure there are a lot of people out there who would love a waterproof case, me included.
Let's see if we can get our voices heard with one or two manufacturers and hopefully they may start making them for our G2s.

I think we should personally try life proof as I have used there products before and can vouch for them, they are great!
If you have never heard of them then check them out here:

I hope there enough people out there willing to help even if you don't want one yourself, I think getting our voices heard and having different manufacturers making products for us will only open other companies eyes and maybe we will get better support naturally through this! I hope so as I absolutely love this phone, and from what I have seen so do all of you.

If you are up for it then head over here:

http://www.lifeproof.com/en/contact/

And fill in the contact form and just explain how great it would be and how you would love them to make the case and you would definitely purchase them if they started to produce them etc etc.


I hope we get enough support on this!

I think you're better off just getting your phone treated to be waterproof so you can use whatever case you want, or none at all.

Liquipel and Never Wet are two that come to mind. They cover the device with some sort of vapor that dries and leaves a protective film across it.

I've never used it, but it's an interesting concept. If I were still in the Navy, I'd have done it a long time ago.

Lifeproof cases are "Splashproof", not "Waterproof". There is a massive difference.
If you want a true Waterproof case you'll probably have to go for a pouch-style case. There are plenty available - http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_tr...at=0&_from=R40
There are also a few Splashproof cases available on eBay as well - http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_tr...at=0&_from=R40

There are probably more, but these are what I found after about 5 minutes searching.

Liquipel is all well and good but it is not as good as people say. i have seen it not work at all. I have seen a treated device be dunked in water and it was like it was never treated a couple of times now... hence the case idea. atleast you can see its doing something good.

Well I have used lifeproof cases in the past and I can vouch for there quality. I have dunked lifeproof cases with phones inside many a time, I am in the GB whitewater rafting team and have taken phones out with a lifeproof on done underwater recording, kept them in my bouyancy aid all day while training in the water. Im happy with there quality of case and perfectly happy with the waterproof offering.
