Waterproof phones - yay? nay? indifferent?

How do you feel about waterproof phones? Do you use one? Has it saved your bacon? Would waterproof certification (or lack of) affect your decision when buying a new phone?

No diff for me. I'm not stupid enough to be using my phone near or around
Oh b*gger!

Many years ago I dropped a crappy Siemens phone (it was crappy even back then) in a toilet (a clean toilet, and I more knocked it in, than dropped it in) and it survived. That's the only incident I've ever had with phones (or any electronics) and water.

On that basis, I wouldn't bother paying more to have a waterproof phone, nor would I forego other features to gain waterproofing.
