    First lesson - take phone out of pants pocket after a night at work.

    Second lesson - If I ask my daughter to wash clothes, make sure I know where my phone is.

    Yep, I washed my Eris. I took it apart, and put it in a bowl of rice. It didn't work last night, but this morning, it is working nicely. With a solid color screen, I can see the discoloration, but on a multi-colored background, it is un-noticable.

    So far, all is working nicely...

    oh yeah....last lesson....insurance might have been a good idea after all.

    what types of insurance is there?

    All I'm familiar with is the Verizon one, with the purchase.

    Only insurance would be from the manufacturer, service provider, or 3rd party seller.

    I didn't get the insurance either because I figure if it shits out ill get a refurbished one which is more cost effective

    I have my Eris in a holster to prevent my phone from ending up in the wash, someone else's hands, in the trash, et al.

    AT least your daughter will do the clothes. If I ask mine to do that she thinks I'm speaking in a foreign language.

    Flyphoenix ... i pay about the same amount ($16) per year, per phone thru my homeowners policy. damage, lost, stolen - you name it, i'm covered. No deductible either. you might want to give your insurance agent a call and see what he/she can offer.

    verizon (asurion) covers lost/stolen, physical or water damage, just about anything but you can only have two replacements
