    A friend of mine was visiting a "country" restroom -- the kind with a seat and a pit... You guessed it -- she accidentally dropped her 8800f down the pit, and needless to say, its still there if anyone wants to retrieve it...

    No porcelain or flushing issues here!!

    Just make sure you put it away before you flush, a flushing toilet spray germs everywhere.

    I always make sure I mute it for the 'Kerplunks' and if I say "Hold on, I've got to do some paperwork (and Mute it)", you know where I'm at.
    Man, typing an email is one thing but actually talking to some while ...err... you know. That is something totally different.

    Absolutely - Hobson accompanies me EVERYWHERE! Altho I do agree with a previous poster that "mute" is a really good thing.

    I had an unfortunate incident with my Treo650 about 2 years ago. (fortunately, the water status was "freshly flushed") Water and electronics do NOT play well together and the Treo was a goner. Called up my carrier - they didn't cover unfortunate incidents such as mine.... but the incident fortuitously occured on the same day as a hurricane warning in my area (with locally heavy rains). I called my carrier back, spoke to another customer service rep, and merely said that during the hurricane, my phone had fallen off the belt clip and landed in some water.

    I got a new Treo.

    It's almost as much a necessity as ensuring that you have sufficient supplies to finish your "paperwork"

    I find it a great way to sneak a peek! Especially when I am with non crackberry addicts who find my addiction bizarre. One more place to secretly get a fix...

    Yep I do but I know the rules

    1). don't use your texting hand to wipe

    2). Never pick up BB with wipping hand

    3). avoid drop in the toliet or sink

    4). and the most important rule of all wash your hands when your done!

    You guys are funny! But yes the BB goes everywhere, I'm actualy on it now in the bathroom. I'm so bad that my BB lays right by head when I'm sleep just in case I might miss something. Needless to say that may be why I don't have a man to sleep by me.

    I've developed borderline OCD when it comes to bathrooms. I worked at Starbucks Coorporate for 2 years, and after having to use THOSE bathrooms, I wash, use paper towels to turn off the faucet and open the doors and don't touch anything. Then I use a hand sanitizer when I get back.

    I'm never touching anyone elses BB again. Ever. I feel dirty from reading this thread...I need to go home and take a shower now...
