MickyMan BS: I dropped me cellphone in the Loo...help (47) RE: BS: Back at the tread, the phone's still dead 28 Apr 04


Wow...lots of activity here at my thread. I am here to update everybody. I'm a school orchestra director and the 11-14 yr olds had lots of ideas to ressurect my phone, most of which have been mentioned above. It seems that everybody has a story when I mention it.
    Anyway... I believe that my mistake-fatale was that I tried to start it back up before it was fully dried out. I waited about three hours after I fished it out and took it apart but I don't think that was enough. There was obviously still moisture inside, because it lit up, sputtered, buzzed, and died in about three seconds. If I had it to do over again I would take it apart, use a hairdryer on it, wait overnight, put it in the oven at a very low heat for a few hours, then finally start it back up.
   As it is now the company is going to replace it for $70.00, which is probably the best I can do as a new one goes for $220.00.
   Note...my masculinity is relieved to find out that there are so many gentlemen who sit like me most of the time. (Perhaps we are all not "real men" - being folkie mudcatters and all.) My wife and I taught our three sons to do the same and we have noticed over the years that our bathroom smells a heck of a lot better than most other households with young males of the species. It does seem to be that it is perhaps more civilized, but I'm warning all of you women that this is one area where you might do better not to nag. These habits die hard.
