    I have just learned a very expensive lesson really two lessons in one
    First check your pockets before you leave for work and put your other clothes in wash
    Second do not wash a cell phone no matter how dirty it is they are DRY CLEAN only LOL
    Oh well I blame my wife she blames me I quess that just goes to show you we all have our moments my conclusion is wash machines and cell phones do work well together

    I'm still trying to convince my wife that if she is going to be so nice as to do the wash five times a week, she ought to at least empty the pockets as well! :after_boom:

    that is what signal insurance is for. Get it through the company that provides your phone. $50 deductible is a LOT better than $200 phone

    Yeah, but purely hypothetically if one should happen to go through the wash and another drown in a tragic fishing accident within 1 year of each other you can't get insurance on them for another year. Not speaking from experience, this one guy I know had it happen to him. 2 phones in about 3 months.......My wife, uh, I mean, his wife is STILL giving me, uh, him grief over that.....:embarassed:

    We've washed a few strange things but never a cell phone. :smile2:

    Not necessary for everyone, we've had cell phones for the last 17 years, never had one to stop working. Over the years have had some replacements from upgrades or changing service but old phone was still OK.
