After years of smugness about the pristine condition in which I keep my mobile phones. I have gone and dropped my brand spanking new phone in a bowl full of hot water and dettol. And then dropped it in again while fishing it out. Epic Fail.
But luckily I watched that episode of the gadget show last year where they tackeld this very same issue and I ripped open the cover, took out the battery and sim card and opened every flap I could in order to let the phone dry out.
After a shaky start the phone is back in full working order. WIN!
