Todays’s gift is a gift to everyone who, like me, keeps doing stupid things with their IPhone. Last year I dropped it in the toilet (don’t ask). Last week I left it in the pocket of my jeans and then threw them into the washing machine. Yes, the phone went through the entire cycle. And yes, It came out (not surprisingly), utterly, totally dead.
Brand new phone. Gone. $500 to replace it. A friend suggested that I fill a bowl with rice, bury the phone in the rice and then put the phone on the heater for three days. Sounded stupid, but I was desperate. What did I have to lose?
Last night I dug the phone out of the rice and turned it on. Nothing. Of course. Then I plugged it into a charger – just for science you understand – and left it over night.
Here's my phone this morning. Good as new. Unbelievable.
