    Eeek. sorry to hear that. I got mine wet in the bathtub once and dried it out. Why is it we can send men to outerspace but someone can't invest a waterproof phone?

      Don't tell them you dropped it in the toilet say it was a puddle or something lol

      You can get a waterproof phone now lol its a nokia, the phone is in a sealed waterproof casing, FI has one for work when he's on exercise lol

          I dropped my work phone into the toilet a couple months ago, luckily it was pre-pee too. Sometimes if you get it fast enough they will dry out. Our phone guy told me if you take out the battery, there is a strip that should nbe white (it is tiny) if that is still white or light pink you are ok, if it is totally red, then your phone is ruined. I am not sure that is true with our phones, but it worked for me when I dropped my new phone in a big puddle. (yes I go through many phones!)

At least it was pre-pee.
            I've done this too. Except for me it was my whole purse that went in the toilet. I had it sitting on the back of the toilet and it flipped over and dumped everything in the toilet (this was also pre-pee, but nonetheless disgusting). I tried drying my phone out, but it didn't work again and I had to get a new one.

              However, if I stopped drinking after every time I dropped my phone in the toilet, washing machine or after falling into a fish pond with my phone in my pocket in a gay Latino bar in Atlanta ... well, if I had quit drinking ... that last one probably wouldn't have happened.

              an old nokia of mine vibrated itself off the nightstand and directly into a bowl of water on the floor that was for the cat.
              pulled it out and cracked it open, once it dried it was good as new, but i think those older phones recover better than the new one with all the fancy schmancy gadgets in them. i think they were more hardy or something.

              good luck! hope it starts working again.

                Same thing happened to my coworker. Except she wasn't drinking and it wasn't pre pee. Eeeh gross. She had to spring for a new phone too.
