I dropped my phone in the toilet a few days ago, and now it refuses to turn on. :rolleyes:  Anything I could do to make it work again? I have insurance albeit with a ?50 excess so it's not that bad, but I have some personal things on there that I don't want anyone getting hold of. Is there a way to ensure the memory is wiped before I send it off to the insurers? Would soaking it in some nasty solution work, or should I lay it on the highway to get run over by a truck?

:sleepingcow:  :penguinmonkey: :blah:

Why not just smash it? Smashing stuff is fun.

Just say it got stolen or you lost it. Does insurance cover that as well?

It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not. -Andre Gide

"Generosity is nothing else than a craze to possess. All which I abandon, all which I give, I enjoy in a higher manner through the fact that I give it away. To give is to enjoy possessively the object which one gives."

i have now dropped two phones in the toilet. I asked the clerk, and she said it is probably in the top 5 for destruction of cell phones. Apparently a lot of people like to talk on the phone while leaning over a toilet.
