Hypothetically speaking...
Does anyone know the morbidity/mortality rate of an LG cell phone dropped in a swimming pool? Actually, it was more of a suicide as the phone jumped out of the clip carrier on my side and into the water as I walked past the pool. Yeah, yay.

So, as I'm dripping all over the house, changing into some dry clothes after a less-than-pleasant dip to retrieve said phone, I ask myself, "Why didn't I grab the leaf net from Evan and just scoop it out?" He was standing right next to me when it happened. Instead, I emptied my pockets, took off my shoes and socks, and sent my boys somewhat North (If you are a guy, or know one, you'll understand this bit of TMI). Did I mention the water isn't swimming temp just yet?

Clearly, the universe has, once again, conspired against me.

If you turned the phone on AFTER you fished it out, Zero. If you didn't, get a hair dryer out and try and dry that sucker up REAL good before putting on the battery and powering up. You may have a slight chance of saving it. Very slight...

This is precisely my plan. No, I didn't try to make it work, because I knew it wouldn't.

That is usually a person's first response - turning it on will fry the circuit faster than an egg on a hot skillet.

No way man. It's me the Universe is conspiring against. I have proof.

Nah, you just suffer from paranoia. My theory is valid.

Awwww...crap! Did you have insurance on that? You could always try the hair dryer method. I have known it to work...stranger things have happened. Wish you the best.

I don't know, I have to call Verizon tomorrow and find out. I'm going to do the dryer thing. This sucks.

Argh...I'm sorry...wish I could help.

hahahaha! I mean, I'm sorry. That is a funny image, though (especially once you mentioned the leaf scooper option!) I do know that most cell phones won't survive a bath in a sink full of dishwater (ahem). At least I didn't have to go for a swim to find that out. :) Ah, life's little lessons...
