Today, it was snowing. After answering a call, I put my phone into my jacket pocket, and hurried across the road. I quickly realised my phone hadn't slipped into my pocket after all, and I turned around in time to see a snowplow go by. I couldn't find my phone in the snowdrifts. FML

Accidents happen, OP. It won't be the end of the world.

Accidents happen, OP. It won't be the end of the world.

And if you lost your phone that way?

I'd get a new one.

You wouldn't be the least bit upset?

Obviously. But like I said, it wouldn't be the end of the world.

Maybe OP should have tried calling it? Maybe an idea?

...it's safe to assume that his phone won't work.

What will Op call the phone with? I'm assuming that they're alone in their search...

Even if the phone did work, the snow would muffle any sound, vibration, or lights that come from ringing.

So who cares if something bad happens? It's not the end of the world, right? The holocaust? Not the end of the world!

I know you didn't just compare losing your phone to the holocaust, right?

If it's still not broken... Call it?

ICE see what you did there

Just come back for it in spring.

Who knows maybe it'll grow into a phone tree and you can pick the first ones when the new phones are ripe :)

Pretty sure there's an "Apple" joke to be had here....

Lemme just pull my handy dandy metal detecter out of my pocket.

An apple/phone tree. Hahahahaha

Sorry, that sucks op. Hope insurance covers it.

Who do you know with cell phone insurance?

No joke there is a cell phone insurance around my place that you can insure your phone for 20$ per year and its covered against theft, break, lost and just about every other accidental mishaps. You recieve a brand new one.

$20 a year? I think I'm being cheated! Mine is like $5 or $8 a month or something. It's protected against everything though, so I can get a new one if anything at all happens to it.

My AT&T plan comes with phone insurance

Seriously? Insurance with verizon is like $5 a month and they told me I would have to pay $170 just to get a new phone because of a small hairline fracture.

Mine isn't through my service provider. I can't remember who it's through at the moment, but the store I got it at sold it (way better than the plan from the provider!) They said it was covered against everything. Theft, water damage, and all that other good stuff.

@51: why would you need to replace it because of a hairline fracture?

Cant tell you how many times iv done this same thing, but in wet grass. Never felt dumber, OP.

I predict Some hobo will have a lucky day in the near future.

with a soaking wet phone...

By the time the phone will be recovered, the battery will have completely drained out so no power will get into the phone, therefore water in your cellphone is harmless if you dry it afterwards

not sure dry rice will fix that problem op

Good luck with finding it or getting a new phone, OP. Hope you have a warranty.

Your phone was given the cold shoulder.

Shit happens. hopefully you can go back later and find it. then if It's broken you can use the warranty

Warranty doesn't usually cover damage.

what the hell do you think warranty means then?

Next big thing on the markets: iThaw.
