Last night I dropped my cell phone in a urinal. Any advice?

    Well, the thread title pretty much sums it up.

    2 am. Drunk. While urinating, my phone vibrates. I keep my left hand on my business, and with my right hand I check a new text message. Sometime between "open" and "reply," the Blackberry tumbles from my hand and lands in the urinal...before I can kill the stream.

    The bathroom attendant, god bless him, played it off as if it was totally cool and it happens all the time. He gave me a few paper towles, I wiped the thing off, washed my hands, swallowed a peppermint, and rejoined my date as if nothing had happened.

    As I'm typing this message on the forum, I'm smelling my phone, inspecting for bodily fluids. It doesn't smell like urine. Some of the keys might be sticking, but I could be imagining that.

    Ideally, I'd like to clean this thing somehow. Any way to clean a Blackberry or cell?

    (And yeah, I know my title of "Any advice?" probably deserves replies like, "Yeah. Don't be a drunken tool.") :)

    It is best to clean it with your tongue.

    when i was in high school we used to smoke in the bathroom. one time this dude named richard dropped his cig in the toilet, picked it up and continued smoking it - from that day forth, he was known as "pissmouth".

    its a tough situation - part of me would have left it there, but that would have caused so much of a hassle. i wont make fun, b/c i probably would have done the exact same thing.

    I dropped my cell phone into a toilet while taking a leak. I was piss drunk and it just fell right in. I looked at it, then flushed it away :cool: No way I was going to stick my hand in there!

    LOL Men are gross. :p Think about it...do you really want any of those germs NEAR your face/mouth? Touching it with your hands is one thing, but what if you don't get all the pee cleaned out of there? Just save all your contacts to your SIM card, get all your info cleared out of there, and buy a new phone.

    Nah, no big deal. Urine is sterile. As long as the phone works and doesn't stink, don't worry about it.

    yes, urine is sterile. Other people's urine still has stuff your's doesn't. Plus, people spit in urinals nonstop...throw cigarettes in there...that blue air freshner.. stale urine.. throw gum in there.. do I need to keep going? That's just nasty

    I wash my hands religiously, and the only other two people that use this computer are my 2 little sisters that also wash their hands alot. Keyboards are gross though, I like to clean mines alot. :eek: I'm sort of a germaphobe (sp?).

    not quite... while the urine is sterile, there could be blood in the urine, and that's what makes it a biohazard.

    I dropped my cell in the toilet a couple of days ago. Forget urine, I was worried that it wouldn't work. I dried it off and fingers crossed it works fine.

    Men may be gross, but I see far more pictures and movies on the internet with girls getting pissed on, rather than guys. The evidence speaks for itself.
