    at least there is no chance of this happening when you drop the Note 2 in a toilet:

    Man drops phone into toilet, nearly loses hand | SoyaCincau

    The Note 2 is big enough so that it can't be flushed down....

    In the toilet is in the toilet. There is no reason to let somebody touch that without warning them. And I'm pretty sure if it goes into the hole/out of view, I'd never consider reaching in after it! That guy is nuts!

    I'm just saying that if the guy had a Note 2, he wouldn't have gotten his hand stuck!

    They probably killed the esn so you can't use it on Verizon anymore but since it's sim unlocked you can use it on another network. ....Just root it and enable the apn editor

    I would sray it down a couple times with lysol and use it. People are being way to dramatic

    I would agree with you to a point. I don't want to use someone elses phone that fell in the toilet though. If it was mine I'd clean it up and move on but I would never drop it in a toilet so all is well.

    feces is a hazardous material. I worked for Home Depot years ago and someone came in and used the bathroom, and pooped in the urinal. I know right? dang kids.. well Home Depot had to call HazMat to come in, in full body suits/masks to remove it.

    So crazy!

    A couple months ago my daughter hands me her iPhone and her OB Commuter case and says "Dad, can you help me put my case back on? It's too hard for me." I ask why she took the case off in the first place, knowing how hard it was to get the rubber back around the hard shell. When I ask her she immediately starts crying. (12 year old hormones starting to kick in). Now I ask what happened and she tells me it fell from her back pocket as she stood up from the toilet. This, as I am holding the phone and case in my hands. I ask if she cleaned it and she said she wiped it with a towel after she fished it out of the "water". Then I asked her what she did with the towel and she said she hung it back up. Kids!!!! I then proceed to clean the phone with a sanitizing wipe, wash the case in very hot soapy water and let it all dry. 24 hours later I turn on the phone and it works like a charm. We got lucky!

    S**t happens, lol!
    The towel! **freaked out whisper voice** don't forget that towel!

    There are people that I unfortunately know who don't wash their hands after taking a dump. Even though their phones may not have fallen in the toilet, I wouldn't want to use it either.

    Jeez man I would be so pissed if someone did that to me. It's unbelievable how some people have no manners or etiquette at all.

    I always hate that when I go to a public restroom and people get done and just walk right out of the bathroom without washing their hands.

    You may be right though. That's why its advised to use a paper towel to turn the sink off and open the door as you leave.

    Absolutely, i have seen many people do this, even after taking a dump. Gross.

    I also have a bottle of purell at my office and in the car. My office runs out of paper in the bathroom from time to time.

    Thanks for the idea OP, I will definitely remember this if/when I need a replacement ........they've gotten enough money from me over the years.......thats how I see it anyway. They should have some kind of "phone forgiveness" like Allstate .....

    What is it with girls and putting their phones in their back pockets? My daughter does the same thing.
    It's not just girls. Almost every adult woman I know I've seen post at least once on Facebook that they dropped their phone in the toilet. I never have heard of a guy doing the same thing.

    I still have to wonder why. I know that they don't make the front pockets very large on most womens clothing. If they have front pockets at all but still who wants to sit on a $700 cell phone?
