In what wasn't the most intelligent thing I've done in my life I just threw my mobile in the toilet.

I was heading for a bath and had dressing gown, towel and book in one hand and my mobile and a tissue in the other. For some reason I then put the tissue in my hand hand and chucked my mobile into the toilet.

SPLOOSH!

(millisecond to register tissues shouldn't go SPLOOSH!)

Shit.

I recovered it quick enough and luckily the toilet was clean at the time but my phone is soaked. I've dismantled it and am leaving it to dry overnight so am uncontactable via mobile atm. Hell, I may be uncontactable by mobile for a while if I'm unlucky! That'll be two phones in under ten days. Must be some sort of record!

Anyway it could be worse. I could have been caught f**king a goat and then forced into marrying it!

Sudan Man Forced To "Marry" Goat (BBC News Online; Friday 24th February 2006)

Actually just f**king a goat (regardless of being cuaght and it's aftereffects) would still be worse (in my books atleast) than chucking your phone down the lav!

In other news, the Gogol Bordello CD arrived on my doormat this morning. Not sure if that was a good move or not considering I got "Start Wearing Purple" stuck in my head for 48 hours earlier this week. Will have a listen and then decide on their live gig at The Astoria the night before I leave to Vegas....

Been there .... phone ! ..... not goat !!!!!!
Carrying two pints across bar - phone rings - answer phone - then try to balance phone on top of pint pot (used to be able to that with old "brick" sized phones) - result - SPLOSH !

Dried out phone completely but it only lasted about another two - three weeks then made funny "popping" noise whilst charging & died.

Hope you have better luck ***Thumbs Up***

Re: Been there .... phone ! ..... not goat !!!!!!
phones and beer do not mix :D you are lucky it lasted that long. Apparently some mobiles die if you answer them in the rain, just ask David.

Thanks! Picture taken at the Royal Highland Show last year, and the icon has come in surprisingly handy!

Better than musingsofallama who dropped his in the toilet he had just used but not flushed yet.
He was insured and the insurance wanted to him to send the phone in so it could be replaced despite being told exactly what happened to it. I pity the poor muck who had to open that package...

I did pretty much the same with my mobile when it was still new. I did exactly as you have - dismantled it and left it out to dry overnight. It started working again with no problem and it's still working 5 years later!

I chucked my phone down the lav at Conpulsion last year. It's always a bit embarressing when the nice man in insurance asks about how the water damage happened and you have to confess that you were headbanging and very drunk the in jacks of a Goth club and think it fell out during a particularly vigorous bout of boogying in the cubicle.
