Now when I say "died", I don't mean the battery went dead. I mean it's gone for good. It went to cell phone heaven to be with the other LG's and Nokia's and first generation iPhones.
So I've been without a phone for over 24 hours now! The Horror!!
It all started Sunday night when I was washing dishes in my sink. Now first off, you should know that I NEVER wash dishes by hand. I firmly believe in dumping everything into the dishwasher and pushing the button. But I just got these new bamboo salad tongs and the care instructions on the tag plainly said, "Hand wash only".
So like the good, direction-following girl that I am, I hand-washed the tongs. Meanwhile, my ice cold Diet Dr. Pepper was sitting on the counter that is slightly above my sink. My cell phone was next to the cup of Dr. Pepper. I reached for my drink and accidentally knocked off my cell phone into the sink full of sudsy, hot water. I dropped my cup and, with the reflexes of Jackie Chan, swiftly scooped the phone out of the water. It was literally in there for, I dunno, probably 1 second at the most.
Right after I pulled it out, I heard the sound:
So I turned the phone off, took it apart and prayed to the cell phone deities above for mercy on my little pink LG. No luck. After 24 hours of drying, it still doesn't work. I'm told by the good folks at AT & T that it probably won't ever function again.
So today, I have to go get a new phone. Luckily, I'm due for an upgrade and I've had my eye on an iPhone for quite some time. I've heard mixed reviews on the newest iPhones, but I really want one, if for any reason, just to look cooler : )
Do you have an iPhone? If so, would you buy one again? If not, what phone do you use and do you like it?
