What a disaster. My girlfriend called me just as the bite alarm and bobbin went mad. I lost grip of the phone and it went straight into the water. The phone has died and I get home to find my laptop has died as well. On a brighter note, I had some lovely bream, roach and carp today despite the thunder and rain.

If I was you I'd ditch her mate. How inconsiderate of her to ring at such a vital moment. How big were the bream ?

If you don't mind me asking what phone was it? It's worthwhile leaving it alone for a few days and see if it'll come on. We get iPod Touch's and even iPhones that have been submerged in water and they sometimes work after being left alone. I wouldn't leave it on a radiator or in the airing cupboard though. I hope it works for you.

Oh nice sounding Bream! At least the day wasn't completely in vain![:T][:)]

Place in an airtight plastic bag, with some silica gel bags and a few ounces of rice.
Leave in a warm, but not hot, cupboard for a week.
Then take her out again and tell her she's dumped.

As for the phone ...

my phone lives in a airtight plastic case with one of those keyfob things that inflates as it touches water. Iphone cost me alot so a 35 case and float seems worth it

You lads should invest in "fishing phones" I'm selling them for next to nothing on the website. Nothing fancy but no drama if you lose it or chuck it in the soup lol.
