    I know this isn't the correct forum for this, but the question about Sirius in the middle of this post...

    Neither Sirius nor XM work on the iPHone. It can not stream radio at this time.

    everyone keeps talking about there experience with other phones but non with a iphone. the iphone lacks certain hardware interference that allow the remedies mentioned in this post. (i.e none removable battery, no rubber plugs for ear jack/charger ports and also the electrical interface that is used for the touch screen. bY THE WAY DROPPED MY IPHONE IN THE TOILET 4 DAYS AFTER PURCHASE SO I CAN TELL YOU THAT THE WAY IT INTERACTED WITH THE WATER WAS LIKE NOTHING I HAVE EVER WITTNESSED ON MY OTHER CELL PHONES THAT GOT WET. Hope this helps

    What kind of holster did you buy?

    phil9t, I think everyone hears you. No need to shout.

    You probably feel like everyone is ignoring you and I understand. But you also have to understand that the you can't just use your own case to justify all others; that is, you maybe very unlucky that after your iPhone dropped, and it exploded, then stopped working. Maybe amjazz was lucky that his phone did not, and could be saved by the methods suggested above.

    Your good intention of trying to pass along your first-hand experience is surely appreciated.

    my iphone literally jumped out of the holster and fell in to the toilet bowl.


    Everyone is missing the obvious: if your iPhone literally jumped out of the holster and fell into the toilet bowl, this is no accident. This, my friends, may be the very first iPhone suicide on record.

    Were there any upsetting conversations using the iPhone prior to the event? Was the leap into the toilet pre- or post-flush? I don’t mean to pry but… problems with charging at home?

    Perhaps if we can learn from this and prevent even one more iPhone from meeting a similar fate, we can turn this tragedy into something positive. While I’m no expert, in these precarious early days of its existence, I think it might be prudent to have an iPhone support page running in Safari in the background at all times. And keeping a few phone numbers for 24 hour help hotlines in your contacts wouldn’t be a bad idea either. And no matter how quiet you find the speakerphone, do not, I repeat, do not yell at the iPhone or, as we are finding out, it may hang up on you for good.

    That would be too unconventional.

    uhhh, the bigger question here is ..at what point in the "relief process" were you when when you had to grab it?

    I'd seriously have to think twice if you know what I'm saying

    Jumped in a pool with mine. Right when I jumped in I remembered it was in my pocket. That was a week ago. I took the sim card out and let it dry for a few days. It never worked again. I bought a new one 2 days ago. My prior phone (a Treo 650) had been soaked 4 times and survived every soaking. Guess I better either be more careful or get a cheap phone.
