Can anyone recommend a good, rugged phone for the beach? If not a phone, a good phone and case combination?

I play volleyball at the beach year-round. Phones end up in the sand, or in sandy beach bags. The grit is hard on them. Some people solve this problem by putting their phones in zip-lock bags. I'm looking for a better solution.

I ordered the Samsung B2100 Xplorer because it is supposedly very rugged and a little waterproof. However, the retailer has sold-out and can't deliver. Can anyone suggest an alternative? I don't want any fancy features -- just something for phone calls and text messages.
