A few of my favorite App’s

So I just finished my third term at Kaplan University. I took a class on computer and technology in the field of Criminal Justice. It is amazing to me how far we have come since the early days of the big boxed computer that filled an entire room. Think about it, we carry computers around with us every day in one form or fashion. Look at your Ipad and smart phones….that is right those are computers! Ha! I know, I know you never looked at your Iphone that way. I guess Apple fooled us! So what does your Iphone do for you? Mine is home to my social networking, contact with the family, my bank book, my radio, my sleep aide, my relief…kids entertainment, my gps, my weatherman, my coupons, my pinboard, my window to my online campus just to name a few. I never realized just how much I rely on my everyday computer! I think if I lost it I would be lost, probably missing someone, deprived of my creative side, singing LET IT GO or EVERYTHING IS AWESOME over and over, or just about going out of mind.

So, I thought while we were on this topic I would share some of my favorite apps right now….

So last night I dropped my iPhone in the toilet.  The worse part about it is my sweet boy hadn’t flushed the potty yet.  EWWWW!!!  I was trying to help him pull up his pants and I saw my phone slide across the counter and fly into the potty.  I quickly got it out and thought wow it didn’t get wet!  I started to check it for possible damage.  I tried to text and that worked.  I made a phone call and that worked too.  All of a sudden I realized that my ear piece wasn’t workin.  The person I called could hear me but I couldn’t hear them.  Oh no!!!  In a panic I powered down my iPhone.  BIG MISTAKE!!!  I couldnt get it to turn back on.  I tried everything I could think of.  I tried to plug it into the wall charger and no life.  It was dead.  I shook the phone, I blew into the phone, I plugged it back into the charger and again no life.  I thought it was over.  I started to have a panic attack.  My mind started to go…How would anyone get a hold of me?  How would I text my sweet love who lives hours away?  How would I retrieve my pictures and videos?

I remembered someone telling me about this rice trick, so I tried it.  It is  really very simple.  All you need is a water damaged cell phone, a ziploc or plastic container, and rice.  Simply pour the rice in the ziploc or plastic container and submerge your water damaged phone in it.  Seal it/cover it.  Let it sit over night. In the morning check the phone and it should be as good as new, like MAGIC!  Wahoooo!  I tried it and amazingly enough it worked!  I kept the rice in the container and put it away for safe keeping.  Never know when I will need emergency rice!

 

Has this ever happened to you?  What have you done to fix a water damaged cell phone?  Did it work?
