Default Thrown in the pool with pearl in my pocket, but it didnt get wet!

Please Login to Remove!

So at a bbq this weekend hanging out in my bathing suit, my girlfriend proceeds to take my phone out of my pocket so she could throw me in the pool. she doesn't do anything for about an hour, I go and get my pearl and put it back in my pocket.

about 20 min later I get thrown in by surprise, i land in the pool quickly lift up my leg that has my phone in my pocket and reach in my pocket (at this point i am having a heart attack) i take it out and it didn't even get wet! I don't know how but it works fine.

I think it was an act of god that saved my phone and my girlfriends life.

First if someone threw me in the pool with my phone.

I would take it out to dry.

make them buy me a new one, even if it comes to work 5 days down the road.

Then kill the person who threw me in.

My 1st thought here is why do you have your phones with you at a pool party? Especially in a bathing suit pocket.

I dropped mine off a stool into a cup of pop.

I didnt turn any sensors red, but my keypad and screen looked to be done with. I took it apart for the first time, air blasted it, set it in my truck on the dash in the sun for a week, and now it works fine, MINUS the screen. it still has stains in circular webs all over.

Now if only I could sabotage my screen to go black permanently so the techs wont notice it and use my warranty to replace it.....................(PM ME)
