    Do you carry your mobile into the toilet?

    i know its a bit personal....but do you take your mobile in with you, so you can play games, text people etc?
    That awkward moment when you remember something and are not sure whether it was real or a dream.

    While waiting at a phone shop with my brother who needed to work something out while he was visiting Australia (he's lived in Thailand for the past 13 years), a young man walked in and asked if he could have the i-Phone that he bought the previous week replaced. When asked for the reason, he said that he dropped it down the toilet, and it hasn't worked since.

    I've had cell-phones for over 20 years, but since I stopped sub-contracting I hardly ever carry one with me, and I certainly have no need to talk or text on it while I'm on the shitter.

    play games and text, no, answer the phone, never, read the news, yep sometimes, it's always in my pocket anyway so it's not like I'd be leaving it outside the room

    I suspect its a woman thing. I've heard many reports of women dropping mobile phones into toilets. Perhaps it relates to the fact that many types of woman's pants don't have pockets... Whatever the reason, I've heard it happen to women more than I've heard it happen to men.

    I have bad health and lately I can't get my BP high enough to walk around a lot without fainting, I take my phone everywhere incase of an emergancy. I don't use my mobile or home phone while on the toilet I leave it on a shelf type thing in the bathroom but have been known to take my DS to the toilet with me.

    I never use it on the toilet, but im paranoid about getting a phonecall when even in the bathroom. Someone has called me once or twice and they say "where are you? its all echo-ey" and you gotta think quick without making it look suss or else theyll be like "oh you should have said this was your "special time", ill call back " so you gotta be quick on your feet and give an answer like: "im just testing the fallback in my new recording studio" or "im just in ikea trapped in the kids playground" or something

    I use it in the toilet. Great time to catch up on FB & twitter updates. Besides, save me buying magazines

    Its a great place to play words with friends on the phone. Make sure the phone is on silent though.

    Pretty sure a bloke at work was playing stick cricket in the shitter last week, before mute quickly was flicked.

    That annoys me. I try to use my phone for novelty shit only during my lunch break. After an incident at work, i stopped playing games altogether when not at home.

    at a job in a terminal station and we were testing the new alarms for equipment we were going to commission at a later date, and i was manually setting off the alarms by applying 250V DC to the correct circuit. anyways, one of them didnt work so i was troubleshooting on the fly while my co-worker/mentor was on the phone to the people receiving the alarm. Someone is sitting twiddling their thumbs waiting, so i felt i was in a bit of a hurry to get the alarm up, and not thinking things through i accidently applied volts to a cable that was being wired-up by someone at the other end of the cable. My mentor noticed this after we had finished and went ape shit saying that i should have taken the time to study the drawings more and shouldnt be wasting my time playing games (whilst waiting for the people at the receiving end of the alarms to be ready, i was in the lunchroom on my phone). Luckily the wireman wasnt working on that same cable at the exact same time or it could have been a hugely serious incident.

    Obviously my fault, but regardless of whether it had anything to do with being on my phone earlier in the day, it does send the wrong message to co-workers and definitely to your superiors (who in my case, will no doubt mention it at my yearly trainee review next month)

    Bugger working at a place where if your not paying attention you kill someone. Sounds kind of intense. Probably not the optimum resolution to the issue, but I do see the reason why you've created that rule.

    I put mine on top of the trash can that's in front of the toilet if I already have it out of my pocket, which it usually is if I'm sitting down at home, for just that reason. Not to reply to words but I want to know if my brother in law got a new word. He pisses me off, plays all 7 letters every other game, has hit 10 point letters on a triple letter and the same word on a triple word score, so obviously I get really angry and have to beat him. Our games are otherwise fairly close. getting 10 points on a triple letter and triple word at the same time is 90 points for one letter... Bastard!!! He's my only Chess with friends buddy, and I his apparently, because I guess we're the only people geeky enough, and I haven't beat him yet so all this adds to the reason I have my mobile out while taking a dump. I'm otherwise terrified of dropping it in the toilet and used to just leave it in my pocket... you know how it is if you read or get high while sitting on the throne, you might forget where you are and realise that you have better things to do 45 minutes later. I don't get high anymore, but just sayin... start playing a video game on the commode when you've had diarrhoea for 3 days and you'll regret it later on.

    Let me say that again just to fully emphasise the awkwardness of it. "start playing a video game on the commode when you've had diarrhoea for 3 days and you'll regret it later on."


    Anyone use a ridiculous case for their phone? My iPhone 4 survived a 5 foot fall onto the metal where the built in closet slides because the back side was a hard clear plastic thing, while the rest was grippy silicone, and now I've been carrying it in a full on nerd "iPhone pocket protector" type thing since I ran into one. I'm pretty sure people MUST talk about me as a result... "...and what the hell is with that iPhone case?!" I've only ever had two people give me a compliment about it in contrast to it being literally the 10th case I'd had in search of the perfect one and having more than a couple compliments on a few of the others.
    It's this one http://thecoolgadgets.com/otterbox-i...ot-waterproof/
    It has its own screen protector, hard inner shell, silicone grippy shell outside of the hard shell, the silicone attempts to plug as many openings as possible as well. Its what the iPhone should have been in the first place because then Apple could have incorporated a larger battery into it as well.
