View Full Version : Dropped My Phone In the Toilet

08-13-2008, 03:01 PM
Well... I was taking a dump listening to my music on my phone. I got up, flushed, then I was going to take a shower so I put my towel but my phone. I grabbed my towel and my phone fell in the toilet. I grabbed it as fast as I could, I took out the battery, mem card, everything. Dried it off, the white cirlce thing on theb ack turned red, so im pissed.

My question is... to get the same phone. Do I have to pay the full retail price? Or will give me some sort of deal? Im with Alltel if it matters.

Any help would be greatly Apperciated.

not kidding.

if the thing turns red you gotta pay. thats how they know if it got water damaged

before you ever think about getting another phone, put all the pieces inside a bag of rice for like a full day.

Alright... the bag of rice idea hopefully works.

^what does that do? dry up the phone?

Also, check to see what kind of damage/replacement your plan comes with.

Rice ftw

spanish rice man, that's where it's at.

Sue the shop/company claiming that they never told you the phone isn't waterproof.

Its an Alltel Buddy!!! Nobody has alltel anymore.

If the dot turns red, with alltel that cancels your warranty. If you have insurance, you pay $50 and get the same phone. But sometimes its not much more expensive to renew your plan and get a new phone.

I got the LG glimmer (I know it sounds like a girl phone) but its literally the only good phone Alltel has. And its awsome!!!

And I got my plan renewed and I payed $120.

But do try the rice thing, Ive heard it works.
