My techno-guru of a husband took the phone all apart to dry out and it's lying, in pieces, on the DR table. Will see, today, if it still works. At first, after I did it, he thought it probably wouldn't work, because there was a water line instide the little monitor (looked like a little aquarium!), so he knew the water had gotten inside.
But, after opening it up, he thinks there's a chance, because he says the water didn't appear to get into any of the important parts and, the water line was going down.
Erin -- I really don't have any need to upgrade. I don't use my cell phone a lot. Have a pre-paid plan, and I don't even use the minimum $5/month that we have to pay. DH has a Droid, and, we use that for most of our long distance; have even discontinued the LD plan on our land line to save the $7/month. (If he's not home and I need LD, I use a calling card. They're cheap. We also use calling cards for our calls to my family in Canada, so we don't get the high cell phone charges on them.)
If it's kaput, it's not such a big deal. I think that DH has some used ones lying around here. He's always got used cell phones, used computers, often used laptops, used everything. (Famous quote -- "We might need it someday." -- lol)
Sigh -- we have a 1300 sq. ft. garage (bigger than our house), but, no room to park a vehicle!
P.S.: Craig -- No static?! lol
