1. Drop it down the loo.
2. Give it a bath (well, you have to, don’t you?).
3. Dry it, then put it in your bed.
4. Turn the electric blanket on high (it will get astonishingly hot. You’d be surprised).
5. Google the problem (if you want the phone to recover, miss out 1-4 and do this immediately).
6. Ignore all advice to steep it in dry rice, as this might just rescue the situation.
Voila! Job done. Next step: down to the phone shop. Do not on any account tell them the above, or your phone cred will be in ruins.
(PS I hate my new phone, but am stuck with it 😫.)

I thought dropping phones down the loo only happens in books! Speaking of books, I have finished Ruth Robinson and really enjoyed it. A review will, of course, follow eventually.ReplyDelete
Meike, my son did it on his wedding morning. Maybe the Germans are more careful!Delete
I’m so glad you’re enjoying RR 🙂
Hahahaha! Very funny, intentionally or no.ReplyDelete
Not funny at the time, RWP, but I can laugh - or maybe smile -about it now. Just...Delete
Been there, done that - but only as far as No. 2 on your list! Waterproof phone, and it survived the adventure without neither blankets nor rice... ;)ReplyDelete
Waterproof phones? Why do no one tell me? Too late now, DT!Delete
Actually, Meike, I am reliably informed that dropping phones down loos is one of the commonest ways of drowning phones.ReplyDelete
I’ve heard that, Graham. I know several people who’ve done it.Delete
Please let me know if you're looking for a article author for your weblog. You have some really great posts and I think I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I'd love to write some articles for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please blast me an e-mail if interested. Many thanks!ReplyDelete
