Default Galaxy S5 NOT water resistant

Samsung advertises the Galaxy S5 as being water resistant. It is NOT. Mine got wet and got ruined. But thank God it was still under warranty. So Verizon overnighted me a new phone. But just the main part of the phone; I had to transfer the battery, back cover, and SIM card from the old one (along with my micro SD card). But still, I was thankful for the replacement.

I charged it up last night, and activated it this morning. A few snags along the way, but it did automatically restore my contacts from the Cloud, and I had all of my pics on the micro SD card. But it messed up my Caller ID pics, so I will need to manually reset those. I also need to reset all of my preferences, re-download all of my aps, and reset those. So I still got a lot of work to do.

I kept my previous phone before the S5 in a snack Zip bag to keep it from getting wet, but I didnít think I needed to do that with the S5 supposedly being water resistant. And I didnít think the touch screen would work with plastic over it. But I just discovered that a Giant Eagle brand snack zip bag fits very snug on the S5 (with an added border), and the touch screen works just fine. So I will be keeping it that now on. It might look a little weird, but it is better than this happening again.

The border I am referring to is the following: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
