    I was wondering, is there anything that I should be careful about after having my 680 in cold/cool weather?

    Take for example, here in Chicago tomorrow, we are supposed to get a snow storm. Should I wait for a half hour, and do, I dunno, a little dance , to make sure that it will be ok after having been outside in a storm all day? Or say, my uncle recently took his BB with him on a ski trip. The one day that he had his BB on him, in his breast coat pocket, it was in the 20s-30s, and at the end of the day, his screen would not turn on for 5ish hours.

    Anything specific I should be concerned about, or should I just take normal precautions?

    Thanks a lot,

    Battery does not hold a charge if too cold.

    It's obvious but, don't leave it in the car.

    What are you doing that causes you to be outside in the storm all day?

    I miss Chicago...

    Buy some instant hand warmers, I have used them with my 600 in a inside coat pocket, being outside for 4-6 hrs at cold temps, had to replace the warmers every hour

    Not me ... moved to Florida from Ohio, and am loving the 75-80 degree weather, especially after talking to my family back home in the 4-5 foot snowstorms.

    Yeah...when we went home a couple years ago, Chicago had a nine inch dump in two hours on the morning we were suppose to leave. We were snowed in.

    But, c'mon...you have to admit, when you only have to be in it once every few years and you know you're going home to Florida, it's kind of nice to re-experience. My kids that were born here loved it, they had never seen it before

    on really cold days keep it in your underwear - great for warmth and for that extra special vibrating alert

    Wait a minute y'all. You've got to find a way to keep it cool. AG says so.

    I live in Ottawa which is much worse than most of you! I went skiing a couple of weeks ago in -20 degrees celsius (that's about -4 Fahrenheit) and I had my 680 in the pocket of my jacket. After about 2 hours of skiing, I wanted to place a call and the phone would turn on. The red button basically was sunken in and would not make the clicking noise it usually makes when it's pressed. I had to soft reset to phone to get it to do anthing but I still couldn't make the call. Everything was fine once I got in the car and warmed it up for about 10 minutes.

    Now I use a little travel pouch to keep it close to the skin when I go skiing and I haven't had a problem.
