Washing machine and mobile phone

, posted: 4-Sep-2013 21:47

So... Last month...

I forgot to take my phone out of my pocket... Put my clothes in the washing machine, added surf, set it to normal cycle...

Half an hour later, I went to look for my phone but it was nowhere to be seen.

Took my spare phone, dialed my number and I could hear a faint noise coming from the washing machine (washing cycle underway - rinsing phase commencing).

I quickly ran to the washing machine, lifted the lid, pulled out all of my clothes and found the phone vibrating at the bottom of the washing machine. Picked up the phone and used it to call my friend overseas.

30 days later, the phone is still working fine with no issues whatsoever.

The phone is actually 'naked' with no case or other protection.

Thank you Sony! Oh, and thank you for the regular updates!

Wow! A work Iphone got dropped in the toilet and the speaker went, everthing else was ok just the speaker, unfortunately dropping an iphone in the toilet is not covered by warranty.

The people at digital mobile did enjoy handing it to their colleagues then telling them it was dropped in the toilet!

My daughter dropped her iPhone in a bucket of water. Worked but speaker muffled, later died. I went to dismantle but nothing close enough to pentalobe screwdriver. Ok, took screenshot, makes a noise. Hard reset it and bingo. Sound is fine too.
