Have you ever lost a phone or dropped it down the toilet? :p

Have you ever lost a phone on a night out, or dropped it down the toilet?
I know some people who do so on a regular basis, but I've been lucky so far ...... touch wood !!

Nope. Never 'lost' a phone; and I don't know why I'd need my phone on the toilet - although: I once used a toilet in the courthouse, and in one of the stalls a barrister was doing his deed when a client rang. I thought it was real pretty to know that the dude would probably charge £250 for answering the phone while dropping a dump.

Oh, wait: I once dropped a phone when I was out doing yardwork. An E61. Took a while to find it in a drainage ditch. Water caused some damage to the screen, but actually, I still have the phone, and it still works 5 years later.

My Sony Ericsson P800 died on a night out because I fell of a ledge (about 4ft) and cracked the screen.

Then a few years ago I was warming a bottle for my son in a jug of warm water and when I sat down my SE Xperia Arc fell out of my pocket (I was wearing sweatpants) and landed in the jug.
Pulled the battery ASAP, dried it out best I could and also put it in a low temperature oven.
It turned back on and kind of worked but opening the camera app made the phone turn off.
I got it replaced by insurance and sold it on ebay as I was only 1 month away from upgrading to a Galaxy Note.

There's a new company kid on the block that claims to use some magical patent to save wet phones.
They only charge a fee when they manage to fix the device or when they have retrieved your stuff from a completely water-killed device. Check it out =>
