cellphone->toilet
    #3736104 - 02/05/05 06:25 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

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?

Why not just smash it? Smashing stuff is fun.

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

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.
