Oooppsss - while drunk in London I dropped my iphone in a deep puddle of muddy was fully submerged for about 5-10 seconds while I had to fish it out

Earpiece speaker stopped working during the night but thank god, the next day the whole phone worked without fail - as if it never went through the truma!

Yay! Hope it stays this way

Claim insurance now. It will inevitably start having problems, just like the vast majority of liquid damaged phones I have seen in my time.

I do have special iPhone insurance in the UK but I'm not sure how well or willingness to pay out, maybe I'll wait till it stops working and say that I've just dropped it...

It's been about 4 days now and still shows no sign of damage. Maybe the mud-filled water contains alcohol in it too.... wouldn't be surprised!

Yes - yes it would, thank god I've just recently purchased contents insurance for my goods in the UK, it's all a lot harder here in the UK and you have no idea how well they pay out.

If all else fails... I'll claim....

Who did you get your contents insurance through out of interest? I need to look at getting some too since I have several high ticket items which more then exceed what my travel insurance will pay out for individual items by far.
