    I think they are 50 for $3 or so at Publix. Classy...

    Maybe it'll help with all of my dropped calls.

    I'd be paranoid about there being a leak in the bag or the seal not being closed all the way.

    That's when you take the 2 seconds to make sure it's closed.

    Funny you bring this up - my girl and I were going for a motorcycle ride and it started to sprinkle a little bit so we stopped and I put our iPhones in a ziplock baggie, then in my pocket. Wouldn't you know it, a couple miles down the road it started to pour - phones would have gotten soaked if it weren't for the baggie. I've never been so glad I carry them around on the bike...

    I put my iPhone in a freezer bag when I go to the beach. Sand manages to get EVERYWHERE. I don't want my iPhone ruined.

    I ordered a set of these after seeing this post. They charged my credit card over 2 minutes ago and I STILL haven't gotten an email confirmation! WTF GROCERY STORE??? I NEED THESE ASAP! They are screwing me! If I don't get an email confirmation AND a tracking number SOON, I am emailing the president of the company. That'll show them.

    Don't laugh but I really use this!

    Don't laugh - but this is what I do with my cell and camera when I'm boating or at the beach and then want to put them in my swimsuit pockets AFTER (not during) swimming.

    I've been doing this for years (since the 3G came out) when I run in the rain. Of course I cut a small hole in a corner to run the headphone wire into and put in my belt pack.

    I even use Publix brand sandwich bags too. ;)

    See that is understandably.
    That being said I sadly would have to say I can think of a few people would could seriously consider doing that full time to protect their apple hardware.
