Yes, that is the reason I got my curve in the 1st place, i.e., wife put nokia through the wash cycle [while on and fully functional], and the nokia be dead as a door nail. Good luck with your next BB, and try and keep it high and dry.
Later dude

Why do you expect your wife to empty the pockets of your pants before washing? Take some personal responsibility, man!

I was going to say this if nobody else did. I left a BT headset in my pants pockets once. My own fault

I feel your pain man; while my Treo wasn't my BEST friend (a mear acquaintance), I was still sad.

Sometimes things happen for a reason though; mine led me to my BEST friend ........ My Curve!

Look at the positive side dude; maybe this will lead you to your true friend. Good Luck!

I hope you didn't give her too much grief. You should be thankful that she does your laundry for you

You really shouldn't leave your BlackBerry in your pants Johnny.....

My mother left her BlackBerry in her pants..... Once
