    Asurion does not want the Note 2 back after it was dropped in unflushed toilet(#2)
    apparently it's now considered bio-hazard material....

    It's almost dinner here in California, so I won't elaborate.... at least Asurion has already
    shipped out a replacement via overnight.

    Can you blame them? I can honestly say I'd be embarrassed to tell them this but I guess we found a way to not send it back!

    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!

    Oh Geeez. Ok, Clean the Note II the best you can with cleaning wipes. Put it in a bag of white rice over night and try to power up the phone. If it powers up and works for a day or two with zero problems, then you have a working Note II that you could sell on ebay or something. Just let the buyer's know it fell in a toilet. Im sure someone will still buy it.

    Funny thread. Myself, I hate used phones if for the only reason the thought of other people's skin oils (and dead skin) embedded in the device grosses me out. Yuck. I even try to limit that stuff on my own phone! That's why I have to have brand new in the box untouched by anyone but the manufacturer.

    Wouldn't it be ten times more disturbing if Asuiron wants the phone shipped back to them?

    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

    Lol yeah. From some micro swab tests, the toilet always came out more sanitary than a disgusting palmed up phone.

    This thread is why I only buy new phones online, and never take them out of my pocket in a bathroom.

    Maybe she didn't want to bring a purse, and the front pockets are too small?
