Did I mention that Middle's cell phone fell into a storm drain?

I'm mentioning it.

K managed, with a broom-stick, a rake and a roll of duct tape, to retrieve it. It's disassembled and sitting in a big jar of rice to dry out.

I'll keep you posted.

Updated to add:

A valiant effort but the phone only vibrates when reassembled.
Also? I wrote five more paragraphs for this post and blogger ate them. Am too frustrated to re-write them.

Don't give up. 17-year-old-Boy's cell phone took three go-rounds with the rice, and is now functional.

He is McGyver!

Verizon has a 2-year replacement thing, where you can get a new phone every two years -- does your plan offer anything like that? It helped us when Rick washed his Razor.

I've never heard of the rice remedy! Blogger has been making me consider Wordpress or Typepad, esp. since I just used up my Gig of storage space, in two years. DRAT.

Don't give up on the phone yet. Shortman's took about a week to stay on when shut. It was fine when open.

Respect to K.
That is uber-parenting.

I washed my daughter's cell phone in the washing machine. It was in her uniform pocket. It turned on but that was it. They say once it gets wet that's it. She bought her new one herself on craig's list:)
