    I am going to Panama City, Florida, in a month and I plan on taking lots of pictures, videos, and I'm going on an airboat. With all this I was wondering if you can recommend a good waterproof, sand proof, and durable case that will keep my iPhone safe. Thank you for your help!

    That what I was thinking. Haha, I wasn't sure cause that's how I ruined the iPhone 3G but then again it wasn't a zip it was a squeeze bag thing.

    While not waterproof (and I don't think you're going to have much of any luck finding a waterproof one), Otterbox makes some of the most durable cases that I've seen myself. The screen is under a piece of plastic (but still completely usable) and all ports have covers over them. The openings on the speaker grills and microphone areas usually have a piece of small cloth over them to prevent debris from making contact with the phone or getting inside the case.

    The Lifeproof case will be perfect for you if if ever sees the light of day and lives up to its claims. There's already a discussion going on about it in this very forum.

    Just came back from Florida, I used the ziploc bag trick. I have a life proof on pre-order but it is taking a while to get shipped out.

    Was there any water leaking in? This is probably what I'll do; put my iPhone 4 while it's in the candy shell into a ziplock bag and then I should be good. Thanks everyone for the help! :D

    I've found the iLoc Cases to work for me at the beach.
