We've heard on good authority that one of the main ways that mobile phones get destroyed is by them being dropped in the toilet!
What? How does that happen!?
Well, a lot of people carry their phones in the back pocket of their trousers, especially if they are wearing jeans. And a lot of people wear jeans either at work, ie builders, or when relaxing at the week-end. The trouble is the phone can easily slip out of the back pocket when the jeans are being taken off or put on.
When the call of nature arrives ('numbers 1 & 2' for ladies and just 'number 2' for fellas), you squat whilst pulling down your jeans/trousers. And then, whoops, out tumbles the phone into a fresh pan of water! Well, you hope its fresh....
If it's one of tuffphones' waterproof models you're in with a chance of saving your precious mobile phone. Even better if it's one of the floating models such as the JCB Tradesman or the iTTM Outlimits...!!
