    Anyone know if this is offered for the Priv? I remember seeing a site a couple years ago that would do it for Z10 and Z30, but I wonder if it is even possible with all the physical buttons on the Priv.

    There's no way that a third party could make the Priv waterproof. Just think about the slider.

    Not sure how the sliding component would affect its waterproof-ability. My understanding was that a certain product (I believe it was called Liquipel) would coat all the electronics in a sort of film / silicone-like treatment.

    Just confirmed it was indeed Liquipel and they say the approved devices include Z10 and Q10, so maybe that means they can do so for Priv as they seem to have found a way to waterproof the Q10 physical keyboard.

    I highly doubt it. If there was a comparable service like this in Canada we would have heard of it by now. Services like this only occur in countries outside of Canada I'm afraid. Google away! .

    Liquipel is awesome. Sucks that they no longer offer the treatment to consumers. BlackBerry should consider Liquipel for future devices as an OEM.

    A waterproof smartphone is a no-brainer, this and wireless charging should be as default as WiFi and mobile hotspot features.

    Have you had your phone done ? If so, how effective is the treatment ?

    No, not personally. I just saw a very impressive demonstration of the Liquipel solution a while ago. It's "nanotechnology".

    Nah. Having the phone break from water damage or soft metal is a no brained. Then people can buy either a new device or expensive cases and screen protectors.

    Gotta think like a money hungry corporation.

    If apple made a truly waterproof iPhone. Why would anyone need to buy one of the hundreds of waterproof pushes or lifeproof cases?

    I guess, even if there is a third party waterproofing, it won't last long with the sliding component of the priv.

    It is totally possible to waterproof the entire PRIV using the nanotechnology available from "Liquipel". Except they no longer offer their solution to consumers as they've moved to offering it at the OEM level. I sent them a direct question about the PRIV and that was what they told me.

    If there are other waterproofing solutions, like "Liquipel", then yes. I just dont know of anything similar.
