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 plug adapters.
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.
