My phone is dying, too, because I've been waiting and waiting for Verizon to release an up-to-date full-function waterproof smartphone. The z3v wasn't "up to date" because it was actually a z2 with a phony rename. The z4v that was announced as coming IS up to date, at least until the z5 comes out soon. But Verizon has suddenly stopped talking about it. I'm getting sick of waiting and waiting. Verizon's "planners" don't seem to be able to keep up with the reality of modern technology.
