        Hiya Guys and Dolls,

        Not sure about ya'll but.......i have dropped more cell phones then i care to admit. Probably the dumbest thing i ever did was when i was at a Mexican restaurant one nite and had a full margarita when everyone wanted to leave.

        There was no way i was going to give that up!! So scared i would get caught to slip the glass in my over sized purse i hid behind the booth and placed it ever so carefully. As we were clearing the table to leave i picked up my cell phone and threw it in my purse without thinking and ker plunk it dove right into the margarita!

        Needless to say i destroyed my precious Nokia at the time. But this beats all i ever heard........ A guy dropped his iPhone 13,000 feet and it still works! He said he had dropped one previously in the bathroom from the sink to floor and it shattered. True story i just heard on the radio.

        Now how is that possible.........

        Water and phones are not friends. I will always remember my old Nokia who died because my friends threw me into the pool with my clothes on.

        My old Nokia phone survived a few high-speed encounters with walls and floors (I used to throw it around when I was angry), it continued to work perfectly but then I replaced it because the battery had little life left in it.

        OMG that is too funny! I think I've dropped your cell phone a time or two. You have back luck with phones.

        They really need to make waterproof cells. I have even dropped my in the toilet.......... !  I have ruined more cells this way. With the last cell i had i was pouring coffee and had my cell right next to the coffee cup and the pot was leaking and splashed all over it.....

        Oh Johnny that is way tooo cute throwing your cell in a fit of angry. The question is, what made you so angry.......your team lost?

        That was true in one occasion, you guessed right: my favourite soccer team had lost a game that they should have won. But most episodes were after annoying phone calls But that's behind me now, I seem to have better control these days or maybe it's just because I like my new phone

        F.Y.I. 

        If you get your phone wet and you think there's a chance it may not work any  longer....

        - Pull out the battery rite away, don't bother turning it off or ending your call. Definitely don't try finishing a text.
                    Reason = what "breaks" your phone is electricity shorting it out, no electricity means it can not short out. Most often electronics do not short out immediately after getting wet. Its when liquid touches specific parts inside, or something turns on in the device.  that it then shorts out (like receiving a call or text and the ringer goes off. Or when you touch the keypad and the lite turns on.)

        - Pull it all apart. Any of the pieces you know how to remove (like the case, the back, any stylish faceplate you may have). If for some reason you actually know how to take it all the way apart do so, but if you have not taken a piece off before do not attempt it now.

        - If whatever got it wet, is or may become sticky. You need to clean it all off of whatever parts you got it on the best you can. you can use a damp cloth to wipe it off (that means get the cloth wet  with water and ring it out, water should not be dripping from the cloth).

        - Now find a safe place you can spread out the pieces and let them dry. A tray, desk, dashboard of your car, whatever. Keep in mind placing the pieces on a towel may not be a good idea if it means lint gets on the pieces. Newspaper is a much better way to go. It easily absorbs small  amounts of water and usually has little dust if its not the cover page.

        - Let it dry for as long as you think you need to, up to 2 days. A few hours in a warm or sunny place is usually good enough. But keep the pieces together so you do not loose any.

        - Now cross your fingers, hope for the best, put it back together and turn it on.

        I do not often get my phone wet, but since I began this method I have yet to destroy one by getting it wet.

        i have one even better.  If you get your phone wet, dont even take it apart. quickly dry  all parts possible, take out battery and dry etc.  and submerge in a bowl of dry rice for 24 hours.  The rice absorbs water.  I actrually dropped my phone in the toilet.  I did this and the next day it turned on and was usuable. lol

          ....after a quick clean of course!

          These stories are great. 

          I've not broken a mobile yet (touch d) via dropping it on the flloor or in the toilet.  I bet I've jinxed myself now.

          Great advice and i know you are right. When i brought my cell in when i got ti wet this last time the clerk told me never ever try to turn it on and take battery out asap. He said if there was any chance of saving it i blew it by trying to turn it on.

          Wasn't there as Sony Ericsson mobile that could suffer any sort of drop, hit, smack, stand in water for hours, etc, etc. As far as I remember, that one was virtually indestructible. Perhaps you should consider getting that one, Lips!
