The bad part is that I am on-call 24/7 for work and I don't own a home phone. Being stupid I checked my voicemail to see if anyone had called me, and the phone STILL works. I didn't have any issues with it. I'm still going to keep the battery out of it until atleast Sunday just to be safe, but as of now, it appears to be working o.k. P.*. I don't know why i said I dropped it in the toilet, I didn't, it was actually in the sink with running water. the phone wasn't submerged, but the keypad got a little bit wet. Who knows why I called the sink the toilet.

Yeah, really. it'* tempting. On the other hand, I hate this phone now. Even with a new battery the thing decharges within a few hours. It'* ridiculous having to charge a cellphone twice a day. I think I'm going to cancel my insurance and look at the LG SLIM phone. Seems like a much higher quality of phone.

The water sensor will still show it was water damaged. They ain't stupid, and noone I've ever heard of covers any sort of water damage

I was just gonna say, they have a little indicator on the battery or the phone itself that turns pink if it'* been in contact with water. My phone, being European, does not have this, because the phone companies in Europe are not as ****-ish
(though they charge 30 for 600 minutes)

IT'* ALIVE!!


After letting it dry out for two days, it'* working again!



The worst part is that I was so drunk when I dropped it in the toilet that I continued to pee on it AFTER I dropped it....
