Death by Diet Dr Pepper

For the second time in a little over a year, I have drowned a cell phone.

I'll wait for you to stop laughing. (Ok, everyone except Army of Dad - he hasn't been laughing)

There. Are you done? Good.

It sucks to do this. This time, I think, I saved it by retrieving it quickly enough and dismantling it and then leaving it in pieces to air dry over night. Today, it works. Now, the 4 and 7 keys are a little non-responsive, but they're working.

The good thing is I was due for an upgrade on my phone and ordered a new one, which should arrive by Friday. *sigh*

I'm not the first person I know to drown a phone, but I did find these handy tips to save a wet phone if this happens to you. One of my friends who drowned her phone finally went to Sam's Club and bought an industrial size box of 32-oz. cups with lids to use in the car. I may have to invest in this on my next purchase. *see AoD, I have been thinking about a solution to this problem.*

    And you wonder why I have that one particular pet name for you.

    We have drowned two (2), $350 SLVR's since March. Mine sat under the water sprinkler outside, and my son's got washed in the field house football laundry. Not good.

    Makes me so glad I have the cheapie free-after-rebate cell phone that if it gets hurt/lost/damaged I'm not out so much money. Ack.

    Fortunately, mine has never suffered a setback, and it's almost two years old!
