Dunno about a bath, but I have had two phones that have carked it due to water. One went through the washing machine, and although I dried it out the little piezo speaker for the ring tone never worked again. The other fell out of my pocket and in when I was taking a dump. That one was a smart phone, which is now a dead shit smart phone. I can see a lot of phones dying this way.

You're missing the point.

You now have a phone you can use while you're bathing.

I take a break from phone calls to have a shower or, rarely, bath. Does the phone float? Unless it does it's no use to me. I have seen friends phones sent to the depths while sailing or boating.
