Had this phone for 13 months and the baby loved playing with it, dropping it on the floor, and throwing it. Went swimming with it in my shorts once and it did fine. For some reason, it did not survive the baby throwing into the toilet. After that, the displays on both sides went completely dead. Verizon Wireless technical support is not at all helpful with helping to fix it. A lot of people I know have had regular cell phones go through the washing machine without any problem so you are just as well off to get a regular phone.
