For most of us, our phone is more than just a device used for calls and texts. Between the storage of contacts that have accumulated over the years, notes and lists on notepads, and countless memories in photo albums, phones today are like treasure boxes of information that can be devastating to lose.
Unfortunately, everyone has seen someone fall victim to the deadly phone-in-water fiasco. After watching the screen go blank, realizing how useless the power button is, and praying that a bowl of rice will bring your phone back to life, hope is often lost. Is there anything that could prevent this phoneless fate? Behold, the new waterproof phone, Hydro by Kyrocera.
The Hydro smartphone boasts waterproof capabilities in up to three feet of water for 30 minutes with a touch screen, Bluetooth, and a camera with flash and video. Another perk is that the Hydro by Kyrocera smartphone is offered by Boost Mobile, and has a very inexpensive pricing plan. Android plans start at $55 for unlimited data, talk time, and texts per month. That amount is reduced by $5 every six months you pay your bill on time, until you reach a maximum discount of $40. With these affordable plans and such a durable phone, the Hydro is definitely worth a look. Check it out at boostmobile.com.
