... you drop your new, week old iPhone XMS into the middle of the bay (and losing all the afternoons SailGP practice pictures) with 24 more payments to make.

Well, that explains why you didn't answer my text... :)

Bummer. I really am sorry, Brother. I'm sure there was other cool data on there, too...

Peace,

It's ok to use the bad words today.

Or as my daughter-in-law said " I didn't know dropping the phone in a puddle of slush would hurt it :o"

that's why i used to have my phone on a leash when on the water. Now the damned phones don't have an eye for a lanyard

That sucks

At least you will always know where your phone is

They make a lifejacket for them, a worthy accessory.

That's a true bummer. One reason why I only take pictures with a absolutely UGLY phone -- my Nikon D3100. Still can't make phone calls on it yet, thought. That feature must be in there somewhere.

Or as my daughter-in-law said " I didn't know dropping the phone in a puddle of slush would hurt it :o"Falling off a dock last year inspired me to get a waterproof case for the replacement.

So, "find my phone" doesn't work under water?

My brother was a motorcycle cop in Portland. He once responded to what was called an assault that just occurred. He arrived to find a woman sitting on the curb moaning hysterically. She hadn't been assaulted. She had dropped her Palm Pilot and it fell into a storm grate.
I hope you retained your composure.

Sorry. I don't care for iPhones or this sail GP thing, but my sympathy all the same. That sucks.

I lost a new pair of $500 glasses that way. I know exactly where they are... in about 50 feet of green with with a silt bottom.

Bummer!

I lost an iPhone by carefully putting it on the roof of the car & driving away. A friend found it 2 weeks later in a snowbank that had melted down to reveal it. He put it on a shelf above & to the side of his woodstove & I grabbed it a week later. It was fine & I used it for at least another year. Non-waterpropf case.

Even waterproof cases are only good to about 3 meters DAMHIKT (and it's not from reading the label).

The funny thing is that I used find my phone app on the iPad to track it... I could see it was for a short time moving slowly from Alcatraz and heading toward the golden gate. I think the crabs may have been playing chess on it too. Apple would have loved to have known their phone worked in 200 feet of water for 5 hours before stopping transmission of signal.

On another sad related note: 40 dollars of side cash mad money tucked inside the phone case, can not be considered a tax deductible donation as well as 2 side job, slush fund checks. I’ll call for new checks to be issued so I can put it toward rear shocks for the old motorcycle in Germany which too is waiting for me to raise the other side cash for airline tickets to Paris.

ya know when subdural cyborg iBrain options become available you’ll say “I can’t believe I was upset about a discrete device that only cost a fraction of my implant !”
