    Well last Thursday, I dropped my beloved iPhone of little less than a year old in the toilet. I quickly put it in some rice for a couple of days. I took it out of the bag and it worked. The only downside was the screens brightness wouldn't go up. So I brought it too the apple store the genius took a look at it. I was so nervous that he would say it had been water damaged. After looking st it he said hold on let me go get you a replacement. I walked in there with broken water damaged phone expecting to pay for one but walked out without paying a cent. Oh I am so very happy.

    That's a few more months away. I can't even get a 3G S due to the shortage here in the UK.

    Is there really still a shortage?

    Nottingham had an endless supply near launch.

    Congrats on the replacement. Surprised that the genius didn't check the water sensor. ;)
