Re: Dropped cell phone in toilet

I can't recall ever dropping my phone in water, but I did drop it in a bucket of hydraulic oil once.  Funniest thing was it was only 1 day old.  I did all the obvious, remove battery, wipe clean continually found oil seeping out from all the seems of the phone.  After about a month my wife said the oil must all be gone because she told me she hadn't noticed any little oil spots in my shirt pocket any more.  Unbelievable, but I haven't ever had any problems with the phone and I am still carrying it today and that was 2 years ago.  Needles to say, after that day I have always kept my pocket buttoned.
