My cell phone is cleaner than your cell phone. I just ran it through the washing machine. What is the best thing to do now? Shall I run it through the dryer, or hang it on the line?

Washing machine...interesting choice.

I dropped mine into the toilet an a friend's house once. Left it there and walked out the door. HE called me later- @home- and asked wtf?

I told him to put it on the deck and I'd grab it later. That was 5+yr ago and I never did touch it again.

How does that address your question, you ask?

Well...

You can try sealing it in a ziploc bag filled with rice for 48 hours.
It fixed my friend's iPhone after her cat knocked it off the counter and into his bowl of water.

Either the dryer or the line will work. Just don't forget to iron it after.

I hope you washed using the "delicates" setting.
Using the "Heavily Soiled" setting always a no no.

Def "air fluff" in the dryer.

I used to work for a guy years ago who was throwing out these two drunks harassing a waitress. So he shoves one out the door, and the other one starts trading punches with him. He was a tough old bastard and ends up winning, and as the beaten drunk is crawling out the door my boss looks down and sees a watch on the ground. Yells out "HEY YOU FORGOT YOUR F*CKING WATCH!" and stomps it a few times with his boot, shattering it into pieces.


As he's doing this he suddenly realizes his wrist feels light.




True story. So don't feel so bad about your phone.

Squeeze it and see if it still has a wring tone.

All great suggestions. I think I will try the rice treatment.

My wife dropped hers in the pool at the waterpark in Tennessee. She put it in a bag of rice for the entire drive home, and still couldn't get it to turn on.

She was pretty disappointed when the rice didn't work. And at that point, we had nothing to lose.

So I wrapped it in a sock, put the sock in a pants pocket (to protect it from getting jarred around), and threw it in the dryer.

The phone worked perfect after that.

Good luck...

Buy the insurance and just get a new upgrade. My wife tends to drop hers in the toilet....3 times so far.

I don't have the insurance on my phone, but I usually pee standing up.

Jeff Livingston

PS Soak it in alcohol to draw out the moisture and then into the rice bag.

Maybe I did myself a favor. I went to the U.S. Cellular office too see what could be done and suffered some of the worst service that I have encountered. I was talking with a relative about it and he recommended his service, Consumer Cellular, also recommend by AARP. I went online and signed on with them. No contract required. 17.50 a month, 100 minutes. I should have the phone by Wednesday and I can activate it immediately on line or by phone. I'll post a followup after I have had it for a week. if anyone is interested.
