do not take your iPhone canoeing!

This:

plus this:

equals this:

Hubby took the kids canoeing yesterday with his iPhone in his pocket.  Then the canoe tipped over and he fell into the water.  with his 5 month-old iPhone.  which is now dead.  Oh, don't worry--everyone is alright because the water there is only about 3 feet deep!  Haha!  
My stepson's iPhone lasted 4 months before someone stole it.  I'm the only one left here with an iPhone.
A new iPhone costs $400.   Yep, they are only cheap when you are first signing up for a new contract.  There is no available insurance for iPhones--so when anything happens you must buy a new phone at regular prices.  So, the men around here are back to regular phones.  :(

Dear P,

All is not lost yet - get a bowl of white rice (uncooked) and put enough so that the phone is completely covered by it- leave it overnight and possibly until tomorrow afternoon...it should work. It happened with my ipod and this is what I did to get it to work again.

And if the rice trick doesn't work, I understand the iPhone flavoring can't be beat.

I never heard about the rice trick, but it's worth a try.

I thought those things just happen at our house. Shucks, sorry to hear about the iphone. Remember to try the rice tomorrow. Mondays, Red Beans and Rice. It should get your phone jump'n, LOL! If that doesn't work; try two cans and a string (Southern Louisiana calling plan)....
