My Lover Is Drowning

Posted by Michelle on Thursday, November 04, 2010
Today something happened that has never happened to me before: I dropped my phone in water >:( I never knew I had such good reflexes until my hand flew into the sink and took it out!! I blame my University. I was in the bathroom washing my hands and their horrible drainage system had the water all backed up, my poor phone didn't deserve it! I took it apart and dried it with a napkin then I attempted to dry it a little more with the hand dryer in the bathroom... 

I turned it on and it toyed with me a little, my phone is such a tease. The red light came on, the Blackberry restart bar loaded, security software bar came up... and then... and then!!!!!!!!! My phone turned off. Talk about anti-climatic moments!!! It was absolutely horrendous, like when you want to sneeze and you know it's there, but for some reason it just won't come out, and you sit there with your sneeze face on for like 5 minutes and nothing comes! Then you look over at the person a few feet from you and you realise they've been watching your hideous sneeze face for th better part of 4 minutes... That's what it felt like, times 20!

I met up with my techie, friend T and he told me to put it in rice. In my head I'm saying to myself, "Rice? Really? I've overestimated his technological savvy!" When I get home I Google "blackberry water repair" and there it is: disassemble blackberry and put in a bowl of rice for 24-48 hours. In Every. Single. Post. I'm not congratulating T yet however! We'll see how this goes for my phone :(

Did I mention I only bought it this summer? August 6th if I remember correctly... Sigh.
