Iphones do not like to swim! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Rushing about yesterday getting everyone into the car so I could drop them at my mums for my eyebrow wax, Ella announces that she needs the toilet. I already had put the potty in the car and her, so quickly lifted her out and rushed her into the house. As I bent down to sort her out, I forgot I had put my phone in back pocket of my jeans, and yep you guessed it! Splash!!!!!!!!!!!! Down the toilet it went :?
After consulting some forums, we tried to dry it out with my hairdryer and have sat it in a warm room since yesterday. But it still wont power up :( We are going into Apple store tomorrow to see what they can do - and no will not be saying how it got wet :lol:
SO I am currently without phone :( not good seeing as mum, dad, Heather and her BF Brian went to Florida today and would normally text to say they arrived. H suggested me going and taking hers till I get something sorted or my dad's but will wait and see what Apple say tomorrow. Am fully expecting a big fat NO to the repair, and having to buy a new phone (Neil is refusing a new phone till iphone5 comes out in October :( ) How will I cope 2 full months with no contact with anyone
I feel like I have lost an arm or soemthing

I dropped my phone down the loo too Fi. Took it apart and stuck it in the airing cupboard for a few days and hey presto! :)
Megan, however, got her phone wet in a Foam Party in Magaluf ( :shock: - no comment!) and it has well & truly died a death!
Good luck! :)

I can't believe how easy done it is :lol:
Apparently as I tried to press buttons when it was wet it prob wont work - according to what i have read on the internet.
How will I cope - no facebook or TBW while feeding the twins. Unless I have to resort to Neil's ipad during feeding times. But a bit bulky to carry about with me :lol:
I am in mourning :(

It is official I <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 The apple store in Glasgow.

Went in yesterday - the place was mobbed, very hot and smelly. Air con broken which explains heat, but it was very stale sweaty smell. Not nice - I suppose to many nerds in one place does that :lol: :lol:
Anyhoo, spoke to a wee man, who said water damage normally costs £139 - kind of what we had expected. But for a one off, I would get a new phone FOR FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ( ok so it is probably a refurbished one but who cares - it was free and it works :) ) So i skipped out the shop like a happy wee bunny :thumleft: [smilie=clap.gif] [smilie=clap.gif]

Being extra careful with my phone from now on though
