Smile Razr V3 that survived washing machine?

I accidently left my V3 in my jeans pocket while it was turned off, the other night while it went though a full cycle all night (about 7 hours). I found it at the bottom of the washing machine with water still dripping out of it. I set on top of my dryer for a eight hours and then set it in a bowl of dry rice for 3 hours. I got it out of the rice bowl and figured its now or never, and powered it on. I started it up and it booted up except for the screen. I took apart its casing and water damage labels were flaring red. I pushed down on the a loose flex cable and the screen turned like regular just a little water mark in the the screen that disappeared in a day or two. Other than that every thing still works on the phone execept the processor is a little slower. Needless to say i was shocked it worked.

I've found that Flash drives dont really mind..


The First Gen iPod Nano and my 5.5G iPod Video minded a LOT though...


Im still having nightmares

I read this post and I dont think "wow, survived being washed, huh?"

I think "Who the hell washes their laundry for 7 hours?"

It takes me 2 hours to wash a load and 1 to dry o.O
edit:if even that
