What do you do if you're walking with your iPhone and it starts to rain?
i would suggest putting it in your pocket.
I put my hand over my pocket until I'm inside.
Reminds me of the hitchhikers guide to the galaxy. Rule number one DON'T PANIC! When it starts raining I rush to put it away.
a little sprinkle wont hurt it. theres a stress test for the new iPhone somewhere on the internets where someone washes it under a tap and it still works (albeit condensation starts to form under the glass). so if it starts to pour jsut put in in your pocket, bag, case etc.
run to the sidewalk for immunity
I hold it proudly above my head, for the mighty iphone will shield me from all of nature's inclemencies. Behold!
The iUmbrella? Same as prior to the iPhone's release... (you could use your headphones also, and put iPhone in pocket as you seek shelter/brolly shop.)
use common sense.

This is a joke, right? Rain won't hurt it.
Yeah. You just hang up and put it somewhere safe from the water. I once dropped mine in snow (it fell out of my pocket as I got out of the car) and I thought my heart stopped, but I picked it up and it was fine. I LUCKED OUT obviously.
You can buy the Umbrella app in the app store for $3.99 and you'll be all set.
What I've done before, especially when going to theme parks and whatnot, is bring along a Ziploc bag and put it in the bag when water could be an issue.
cover the headphone port as thats where the water damage indicator is
If I think of it, I put it away. The water indicator is in the headphone jack, if water gets in there, no warrenty repairs
I was surprised that nobody said this first... Its the most reasonable solution to light rain... I was always paranoid even after a storm where trees or gutters were still dripping. I'd cover the port if walking under them..
But during a downpour... use the headphones!
yeah, if I think of it, ill throw the earbuds on. Great quality and the phone is safe in my pocket. Though most people see the white earbuds and think im listening to an iPod, just talking to myself.
Open my umbrella. I'm living in England, people here never leave the house without an umbrella
Makes me wonder whether Mac fanbois would pay a premium for a white umbrella with an alumium handle and an Apple logo..
We already know the answer to this one, don't we?
tried that, it's not worth a damn. first big wind and it turned inside out.
I think we know the answer to that one. Are you listening, Mr Jobs?
Forget that, isn't that what Bluetooth is for?
Interesting that I remember reading a theory that it didn't help to run (or walk faster) in the rain since you actually collied into more drops and the net effect is about the same.
