Ah wise words – it is better to have loved and lost than to have never loved an iPhone at all. Whilst holidaying I went for an early morning swim at one of the worlds most beautiful beaches and strolled into the ocean without realising I had both my iPhone and wallet in my pocket. These are the days that followed post drowned iPhone 3GS:
Day 1 – 100% Denial. Ah its cool don’t fret its never let me down yet. I know once I dry it and power it up again it will work. I place my iPhone on the beach to dry and go back into the water. Once I get back home theres still water in screen so I remove the SIM and put it in a bowl of rice (A Google search prompted me to do so).
Day 2 – All the water seems to have evaporated. Hope stil lives that it will work now once I charge this bad boy up. I plug it in and leave it on charge for the rest of the day intermittently pressing the power button and the middle button in.
Day 3 – It all begins to set in as I come to terms with my loss; Acceptance. I spend a day weeping. I put my SIM card into my old Samsung E900. I find my entire life a year ago on this phone – old pictures, messages, memories. At least I have a contact list again even though its a year out of date.
