    Default I dropped my bb in toilet! Please help Quick!

    last night i found out that my gurly might not turn in to my wifey. she has a kid and his father is locked up in prison but is getting out in a couple months, she lied to me about so many things but i still love her. anyways i was looking for an i miss you pic on my phone to send to her phone via mms while i was taking a crap and stretched to get some toilet paper when kur plunk it went. i was tempted not to dig in to my crap but thought hey this is my only friend right now! so i fished it out and held it not knowing what to do and the screen was getting all foggy and green then i thought i should take out the battery so i did and [yes] without wiping got the blow dryer out and tried to dry as much as i could. i am so torn up right now that i dont know what to do. my girlfriend left me and now this! i want to save my phone but it stinks like crap and urine. what should i do? will Nextel replace it if it has water damage? please help me!

    Rice should work, I would not use it for at least 1 day.

    As for your GF, my advice, let her go. If she lied to you now, she will again in the future. It's not worth it

    april fools.... maybe, but i read that if you open it up, just take the case apart, put all the pieces in a bowl of UNCOOKED rice with a lid on it, for about 24 hours, that is it does work.

    JLJ I think these guys might be on to something eh? I think it's a joke too. If not hopefully your having a bowl of rice for the next little while after it dries!

    This has happened to me before and yes... The rice works! Put it in a bowl of rice... First things first try to clean it as much as you can. Do not use a blow dryer... This is damaging... Alcohol is also damaging.

    Put your berry in a sealed container and make sure all components are fully emerged in the uncooked rice. When I did it I put it in I left it for about 2 days and it came out great. Good Luck!!!

    April fools guys. You got me. Everything except for the dropping my phone in toilet is true. I just wanted to express how I fealt without making it too serious. But I dropped my psp in a target bathroom two years ago and that's where I got the plot to the story from. I wish it were all just a joke but at least I got my phone and this community! But yeah it didn't get far but April Fools! *sniffles* ttyl my job sent me home but I am out trying to see her. Thanks for the support!

    Well I will bite..

    I had a Nextel i1000 Flip back in the day and it fell off my belt clip onto the beach near the ocean shoreline and a small wave passed over it .. I recovered it quickly and like yours it started fogging up badly. I took the battery out shook it like mad.. blew in it .. left it in the sun .. etc.. the display slowly faded away ... then I realized I had just placed this girl's number in my cell the night before that I was trying to get so desperately.. I was so upset .. anyways .. I had to get it replaced and said I lost the phone ..3 months later for giggles I took the dead one out of the cell phone junk box drawer and placed it on the charger and it actually powered up and display worked ! 1st thing I did was grab that girl's # I was so trying to get .. after that I took all the other #s I had lost and re-entered those back into my new phone I replaced it with..

    Sometimes you get lucky, sometimes you dont, sometimes it is just a sign from above sending you a message...Like one of my employees was missing his Ex-GF and was about to send her a Text message to say Hello when his cell phone froze up on him, he took that as a sign to NOT text her, and was happy he didnt..lol ... relationships can be tough especially when their is an Ex lingering around still and especially when they both have a child in common.. I try to steer away from females with "Ex-BF" problems as they only seem to cause drama. But JLJ good luck to you, and I hope you work things out with your BB and your girl.

    I have saved many cell phones from a watery grave by using a bag of rice. Get a big bag of dry rice from the store. open the bag at the top and put the cell phone in. If it's a flip phone, leave it flipped open. Take the battery out. Take the battery door off and then bury the phone in the rice. Seal the bag and leave it to dry for a couple days. I lost a Motorola StarTac (old phone) and my former i880 and both were saved with a bag of rice.

    But if you have insurance, Nextel will replace a water damaged phone. That's what it's there for.

    Nice joke JLJ, I think I would have to consider diving in the turd filled toilet for mine though. I have replacement insurance also. I would flush and report it lost LMFAO.

    Anywys bro as far as the girl goes, from 7 years of experience, once you catch your girl in a lie like that, you will find out there has been more in the past and if you stay, there will be MANY more in the future. I just got out of a 14 year bit with the mother of my kids because she is a liar on all fronts. Just take it in stride. many other fish in the sea *( I know easier said than done, hopefully I can take my own advice aswell)

    I agree with shank, mine was taking pictures of herself and sending them to an ex. Suspected on several ocassions and confronted her, she always denied it. Well I found the pics in her phone she said they were for herself, I found she had sent them to her own email, she said she wanted to see them better. I then found the forwarded emails going to her ex, would you believe she told me she didn't ever send them to him. I still have them in my email box. Once they xheat or lie, second chances are not for them. You know the saying forgive and forget, well it little know at the end is the word them.
    Good luck with how ever you handle it.
