    Anyone got it?

    My Iphone slipped out of my hoodie pocket while I was peeing, I wasn't even using it. The indicator is pink/red, so I am out of luck. I wanted to see if anyone had links to the document that stated you could get store credit towards purchasing a new one.

    yikes so I'm guessing it fell into the toilet?

    I'm sure you could call Apple and see what the options are for replacing or providing credit towards a new iPhone.

    No such thing exists. You may be able to take it the Apple store and get it replaced for $250. You get a refurb.

    How much should I sell my broken iPhone for? I've got offers ranging from $100 - $180. What's normal?

    Have you told people that they are buying a contaminated phone? I sure as hell would not want to buy something covered in urine, hah.

    I did use a damp washcloth and soap to clean the exterior, if that puts your mind at ease!

    Whoa!

    So, I went to the Apple retail store today, walked up to the genius bar, and said, "hey, I dropped my iPhone in the toilet, I need to buy a refurb". Guy says ok, that'll be $249. We start to do the paperwork, and at the end, he says, "today is your lucky day, when I sent form in for the claim, it says it'll be no charge for you."

    !!

    So, I walked out of the Apple retail store today with a new (to me, at least) iPhone with a serial showing it was made 3 weeks ago.

    How lucky is that?!
