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.
