    I wonder if they have had any trouble with the BB after taking to the beach. My GM is on his 3rd 8700c since March. Provider says they do not like damp or humid conditions. Reports folks on the coast have a lot of issues with their BBs

    I do take my BB with me on hols, purely as this is the only mobile device that I own, and that it operates virtually worldwide. I am more concerned with being able to be contacted by family in the event of a crisis. Although I dive I do not take my BB on board, just too risky.

    True indeed.

    I took mine to the beach a few times this summer and honestly, it made me more nervous than anything else.

    Water, sand and humidity is a deadly combination for any electronic device.

    Hopefully someone will designs a weatherproof case soon!
