DAMN!! MY CELL PHONE - Now I need a new one.. - July 30, 2009, 01:16 PM

James luck strikes again!

Yup - I parked my car at the corner. While I was getting out, I dropped my cell phone. It went skidding across into the sewer drain in D.C. DAMN! I even pulled the cover off to see by some chance it was recoverable. Full of nasty ass water and I couldnt even see it....DAMN!!

I think I had over 400 numbers in that frikin thing. BUT! I did sign up for that option where the phone uploads the address book once a day. SO - HOPEFULLY it was working the way it supposed to. I just filed a claim and they are shipping me a new phone (I wish I knew they wouldnt do it at the store and wasted about an hour of my time). I cant upgrade till October (Verizon) so I am stuck with another Voyager. Im thinking about going Blackberry next time..

If your phone has a simcard I have a simcard reader and can retrieve the #'s. For $75 you can make your phone waterproof.

I've always been sketched out about this happening but I always say to myself..."meh...what are the odds?" Apparently, the odds are better then I gave them credit for.

I'm going to be more careful now about my fumbly fingers

IT ABSOLUTELY SUCKS...But then after a while..Its kinda nice knowing that no ones going to bother me. But the downfall is that all of a sudden youll realize that you have to make a phone call and the panic starts all over again.

I really want an IPHONE but they don't have any replacement plans..I abuse my cell phones..If they did, Id buy one.
