    Occasionally... Jepha from The Used writes a small article that he posts on MySpace or theused.net . This time, he wrote about when the lead singer, Bert dropped his iPhone into a pool. Lucky for him that it still works!

    "Well bert dropped his iPhone a pool a couple days ago haha we all
    watched it sink to the bottom with the light on. Oddly enough it
    stayed lit for three or so min. Finally Quinn climbed into the pool
    to grab it and guess what.... Yup it still worked!!!!! How f**king
    crazy is that!! Underwater for three or so min and it still works? I'm
    not saying everything is 100% ok wit it but
    He's using it still haha crazy right?"

    Just thought it was worth posting..

    True Story

    I had my iPhone on my trucks center console besides it I had a Beer in the cupholder, you do the math, it was completely soaked in beer, but only for some seconds, less than a minute, grab it as quick as I can, then went into a concert and keep it off in my pocket. After 4 hours back at home I used my wife's hair dryer and then turn it on and it's still rocking!

    Is beer alcohol? If a cop stopped you with an open beer, you think that would be ok.?

    He said "then went into a concert", so it sounds like he was just tailgating, and not actually driving at the time or planning to soon after.

    He dropped his iphone in a beer, and all you can worry about is him drinking and driving? Get your priorities straight man. The iphone could have been a beer soaked brick...
