You talk about fraud then tell someone to lie. Classy.

OP, you do need to tell them it was dropped in your piss so they can put gloves on. There's no telling what they can contract by touching your phone that was submerged in piss. Do the right thing.

All i can do is go into Apple and see what happens, if not will claim on my house insurance (though the excess is large). All my own fault so willing to take flak but was more after advice than get slaughtered lol.

Thanks anyway

It was only banter, if people cant take then dont give it (and to be fair ive had a fair bit in this thread which was expected). Dont think the poster was too (excuse the pun) pissed off so you really should keep your beak out mate
You said you were playing a game buddy. Which story is it?

Playing 'Agent Dash' and watching a football game on Sky Go!! No wonder you dropped it!

I'd be interested to know how you managed to do both those things on your iPhone at the same time.

Reminds me of an old joke, a Marine and a Naval officer are standing at the urinal, and both finish at the same time. The Navy officer goes to wash his hands and the Marine goes to walk out the door. The Navy officer says, "You know, in the Navy they taught us to was our hands when we're done using the bathroom!" The Marine says.....





In the Marines they taught us not to pi$$ on our hands!

Phone In Toilet

I did something relatively similar a minute ago.

I was taking a dump and playing some tiny wings. Naturally I used my boxers as a phone hammock to wipe and flush. Forgetting this I pulled up my boxers and my phone dropped in the toilet. I immediately grabbed it out and dried off the water, but I couldn't switch it off because the screen had several blank spots.

What should I do.

P.S the screen is now all funny colours.

There is nothing in the definition of that word that describes what you're doing. You're saying that not only do you use the phone while actively going to the bathroom (questionable enough) but then put it inside your underwear? I feel like the luckiest person in the world to not know you personally or work with you, you're basically a walking bio-hazard and literally have the ********* phone on the forums.

Trifecta achieved, good job.
What are you talking about??? Apple have no problems replacing phones that have been dropped in the toilet. It is actually a very common occurrence, the girl i spoke to when i got my iPhone wet said people come in all the time with iPhones that have been dropped in the toilet..

I turned my phone on this morning and it works completely fine. Although, I think I've learned my lesson about phone hammock.

False. This is not an official policy and it truly depends on who you speak to and whether they want to give it to you for free. Putting a phone in your boxers that ultimately leads to dropping it in the toilet is not covered under a regular warranty. It is covered under AC+ and in that case, it is not free either. Why would Apple give you a free phone for being completely irresponsible (and gross) with your phone?

Go back and read my post again....I said for a Fee NOT for free.

All good In certain circumstances Apple have been known to replace iPhones for free but it really depends who you speak to. When i got my iPhone 4 wet i had to pay a fee but it was still better then paying for a whole new phone.

Not to crap all over the current pisstaking puns but really it's crappy when this happens.

We do give a crap, and wish you the best of luck in rinsing your phone of yourself.
