    I had a "few beers" last night, went to the restroom and i was sending a text luckly the toilet was clean. The phone fell out of my hand hit the side of the toilet the actual phone bounced and hit the floor, the battery and back cover sunk to the bottom. At first i was like did this actually happen, in a few seconds i was like oh hell no and grabed the case and battery. I dried both of them off. There was very little water on the battery. Turned it back on and not a thing happened to the phone. Shall we say "man over board"?

    Nice to hear that it all worked out I believe that the battery is sealed pretty good. I have dropped many a phone in the toilet over the years my Palms & Blackberry to name a few just let them dry for a day or to only to have issues down the road! I'm not even thinking about my EVO being around that place at all! lol

    I understand that OSHA is looking into enacting "distracted urination" legislation for just such occurances.

    Anytime there's a toilet involved usually it's too much info. :)

    All in good humor, no offense meant.

    Crazy things can happen while in the restroom (a good example is the OP's post). I'm drunk 95% of the time so I know my phone out of my pocket near a toilet would be asking for bad news...

    This is just like that windows phone 7 "Really?" commercial. Specifically the part with the Urinal. Anyway,

    I'm glad to hear the whole phone didn't go under. Could've been a lot worse. The Android gods must have been looking out for you.

    'We need a phone to save us from our phone... to get in and out of life'. I guess the commercial is talking about the Android phone andh how addictive it can be. If you don't want a great addictive phone, get the W7 phone. It's so boring that you'll focus on life instead of the phone ;)

    Lol. Could be :) I think the in out and back to life thing is a stupid idea, but I still like the commercial because there really are times I see people on their phones and think, "Really?" :)

    I dropped my phone in the washing up

    Kinda tragic when the lights flickered like the titanic and it it hit the bottom
    Took it out and wouldnt turn on :(

    Stuck it in the hot press, cracked the cover open and hair dryered it out, esp the screen

    After an hour got it to work
    Screen was terrible, camera didnt work

    A month later it perfectly (and thoroughly cleaned :cool:) and looks brand new (except for the stone age Symbain OS)
