How Not to End a Call

How Not to End a Call

OK. We know a bunch of people who’ve done this and you do, too, we’ll bet. They’ve dropped their cell phones in the toilet. Gaaaa! Phooey! (Or, they say something like that.)

Today we’re offering up a link to great advice for this eventuality. It seems like more than an urban legend-for-success, so we wanted to pass it along. Plus, the text is easy to read. It’s short and is accompanied by a video with mediocre acting and gnarly design. So, perfect. Right?

Sure is. Don’t forget to read the comments below for advice on similar problems as well as a message from one guy who writes what the video shows. Hey, thanks guy! That helps.

I've done this. I could not believe it because the cell literally LEAPED from sink into the toilet. It eventually died. I was too embarrassed to tell my carrier what had happened.
