    Is the phone supposed to be water resistant? Is there away to wipe the phone if the screen is not responding?

    The phone is supposedly water repellant, which doesn't mean much. Try holding the power button down for 7-10 seconds. Good luck.

    I believe that they advertise it as nano coated splash resistant. So, if you're caught in a rainstorm or carry it in your pocket while you exercise and sweat, the phone should be fine. A soaking, though. Not so much.

    If you set up android device manager or Motorola's remote management facility, if the phone boots without the screen working you'd be able to do a remote data wipe. Or you can try a remote data wipe so that the next time it powers on it will be wiped.

    Water resistance is never a guarantee that the phone is 100% waterproof (regardless of what they show you in ads). All it takes is one small breach in the protective coating or seals (e.g., a small screen crack from minor trauma), and water could potentially get into the innards of the phone.
