    Please dont try this at Home it is a scientific experiment and could go horribly wrong and people could die in the process so I wash my hands if masses of priv owners go down in flames drowning their Privs, Im just saying

    I think many manufactures have moved to trying reduce the risk of water damage... that said I wouldn't count on being that fortunate a second time.

    And as others have said, better to be safe and put it in rice for a little while... than to assume that because it worked that there isn't any water migrating around inside of it.

    Unless a phone is made using IP67 certified connectors and gasket, it is never water proof. Even IP67 gives you 30 minutes at 1 m deep. It is not "air tight" because technically it is impossible.

    You probably should put a disclaimer, otherwise someone might sue you after they dunk and kill their Priv...

    It's America after all.

    I stupidly bumped a mostly full glass of beer and spilled it directly onto my, then 2-3 day old priv. I freaked and dried it off really quickly. Its still working fine now, 3-4 weeks later. I don't have any allusions about this phone being even remotely waterproof. I think I was just lucky.

    One dude here borked his PRIV from excess moisture applying a screen protector , OP survived a dunk in water. There is a wide variation in outcomes and the takeaway here should be the PRIV neither is especially susceptible to water or water resistant. Take care of your high priced devices for the best result.

    that's awesome if you dropped it into water for that long and it caused you no problems

    encouraging. i also had a stressful experience when i dropped my Priv onto the street. surprisingly, but i say surprisingly because people are under a false impression the Priv is not tough, my Priv suffered no damage at all, thanks to not only the toughness of the Priv but also the OEM hard shell case that protects it

    the Priv has definitely NOT been treated with a water resistant coating, but i do believe all devices should be treated - although, judging from that Passport video, devices are somewhat water resistant regardless - which is really good to see

    a company called liquipel created a nano coating that covers the device and all of it's components - making the entire treated device water resistant

    It appears they do not provide this service to individuals anymore, only OEMs and manufacturers:

    Got my answer:

    Attachment 392931

    So... Anyone know where a similar service is available for consumers in Canada?

    I had a big cup of coffee spilt on my priv and the only thing that went wrong was the speaker.

    And surprisingly blackberry in my country covered it.

    All good now.

    Don't wish to start a debate but I just dropped my priv into the pool, immersed in water for at last 8 - 10 seconds initially I was freaking out but when I got it out I dried it off on my shirt and it was working perfectly I know they don't advertise this phone as waterproof but damn there's not even evidence of water anywhere in the phone , very pleased

    Sorry to burst your bubble. Most phones are water-resistant to some degree. It could be a few seconds to a few minutes in water of some temperature. This is determined by how well the adhesives in the phone work.

    Even phones like the S7 and Xperia phones are water-resistant to a certain degree of exposure.

    You seem confident about it. Why don't you try it out with your Passport?
