Use a condom!

Place your phone in a condom and tie the end. This works even if you submerge it in water. :)

Condom Phone

  • Just brilliant. The kids will be surprised what watertight phone bags are good for, when they grow older :) I wonder how well you can use the touch screen like this.

  • Just make sure to use high quality condoms. Some condoms are easily punctured leaving the user in great despair. :)

  • @JemEripol - in that case I'd be so happy to have used it for a phone!

  • Hahaha. A good excuse if your mother discovers one in your wallet! :)

  • If the condom is a good tight fit the touch will still work fine. (Please don't quote me out of context. :-) )

Ziplock freezer bags also work well.
