My husband bought me an iPhone for my birthday and I have been enjoying it for two weeks now? or was it one week? Not sure... but I have been Skyp-ing my parents and sister while cooking a meal for the kids or decorating my son's cupcakes for his mini birthday celebration. I have been waiting to use it for the longest time because the phone company took forever (since August) to transfer my own number from a pre-paid account to a post-paid account.So you can imagine the excitement!!!
I was so taken by the applications on the phone and the fact that I could take videos and pictures with it that I decided not to take my camera on our island holiday. I thought I would pack light and just take my iPhone. Little did I know that the morning after our arrival, my phone would end up in the pool underwater.
How? Well... that is the story... my son was playing with my daughter in the pool. He is a very good swimmer and was acting as if a monster was getting him. He was calling for my daughter to help him and every time she would extend her hand and ask him not to worry. The last time she did that, she gave him her leg instead and when he grabbed it, he pulled so hard that she went under. I was videotaping at the time and when I saw that I immediately jumped in and pulled her out forgetting that I had the phone in my left hand.
So the phone went under but can you believe that it still works... everything on it does except the speakers... well part of the speakers which is strange. Skype works normally and I can hear people talking to me... but I cannot hear people when I make or get calls or watch a YouTube video unless I put the headphones on.... still I am thankful that it does. This would make a very good advert don't you think?
When I watched the video, I could hear the glug glug in the background when the phone took a dive.
Have you had your phone survive any kind of blow before?
