The Samsung B2100 is a durable phone with a rugged outdoor design; to say the phone is just “shock-proof” and “water-proof” does not really do justice to the phone’s design. The B2100 is a Quad-Band phone designed with military-grade specifications (MIL-STD-810F), intended for backpackers, campers and outdoor travelers all over the world.
To make it a better outdoor companion, the phone includes FM radio, incandescent flashlight and 1.3MP camera with video capabilities.
Cellular Abroad has been a retailer for the B2100 since September 2010, and it’s slowly becoming one of our most popular phone models; the simple, rugged design and ease of use make it perfect for cell phone novices. As with all of our phone models, we include the variable-voltage international charger and adapters & converters worth buying. We believe in top quality plug adapters since they help prevent malfunctions and extend the life of most products.
So, does the Samsung Xplorer B2100 work underwater? The Mobile Gazette team have conducted their own tests – judge for yourself:

I took this phone with me for a trip across Europe, to Copenhagen and then to Milan. The instructions were a bit confusing at first but after a call to customer service I was set straight. It seems like most people I hadn't read the manual first, and apparently you're supposed to wait to get a call from the phone before it connects. After that it worked like a charm. I got the data working eventually too so I was able to send gmail. I recommend this to any low-end users who need a sturdy phone for their next trip.
