come 12:30 it will be 1 week since i got it.

was in the bathroom and put it on a roll of toilet paper above the toilet and it was safe, was washing my hands and face and next i know it falls in the toilet. took it out 2 seconds later. was working just fine but turned it off and stuff it in a little bit of rice.

i have applecare plus but im not gonna use it. i think the phone is fine but meh we will see. kinda mad it already happened with the 5 and ive never done anything like that with my 4 which i had since it dropped til last week

You balanced the phone on a roll of toilet paper above the toilet?? :confused:

AppleCare+ was made for you. :apple:

Agreed. AppleCare + was made for you. Toilet paper is not meant to be used as a dock.

Why why would you put a on top of a toilet where theres water just below it. Just put it on the floor in front of you. I thinks its common sense not to put an expensive device above water.

Honestly though, did this actually happen or are you just trolling?

I dropped mine 1 week into it too, on hard surface but luckily no obvious damage.

Dont take any chances, the dang thing is so slippery, don't even leave it on the sofa's armrests, thinking oh just a few seconds... BAM!

Can't believe so many reports of dropping iphone into the toilet on this forum, nor how could anyone want to fess up to this is beyond me. Goodness, just say you dropped it into some water briefly, and not even mention a toilet at all. :confused:

The leg extension of the cat in your avatar amazes me and distracts me all the time, lol. ��


If I'm reading this correctly you are, in part, explaining the unfortunate accident that occurred to your brand new iPhone on your fascination with a picture of a cat licking it's ***hole!?:eek:

I have some free time available if you would like to make an appointment.:cool:

Actually...really sorry about your phone. I hope it works out without extra expense to you.:D

Good grief, here we go with the hindsight comment. I think everyone has at one time put their iphone in a spot if even for a second that could potentially damage their phone.

Wasn't my phone, and I didn't make the picture bigger so didn't see the cat was locking its hole. None the less awesome picture #

How is your toilet designed? I'm failing to understand how it could fall from the toilet paper roll, into the actual toilet as they are usually placed a distance away so you are able to reach for the toilet paper.

Secondly, I don't recommend using your phone in the toilet again which I'm sure you understand by now.

To all people who are thinking about it : Just don't do it, there's really no need to play with your phone while your on the toilet, or even use your phone. If your bored, take a magazine, a news paper or something else. If your bowel movements are taking that long anyway, eat some fibre or see a dietician. There are so many stories of people either dropping their phone in the toilet or dropping it from the toilet roll onto the floor and smashing it.

Good luck with your phone and hopefully it still works.
