Shortly before our submission of iTouch My Friends, Andrew and I were out ice fishing (very Canadian thing to do). On our way home I discovered that my precious iPhone was missing from my pocket. In a confused state, I quickly checked the truck. After not finding it, I went back to our ice fishing spot (not really that good of a spot, no fish were caught that night) and looked frantically for the iPhone. No luck. I was in panic mode when I got home. I went back to the spot later on that night, but to no avail. My iPhone was officially gone.
I borrowed an old phone from a friend that I think they may have inherited from their great-grandfather. It did it’s job as a phone, but not much more. Texting was a pain (what the hell is T9?), and the phone had absolutely no apps. Anyhow, I got used the fact that I was a lesser human being.
Last night, my luck changed. After moving my ice hut, I looked down and saw my precious iPhone. It was there in the snow, frozen since I lost it two months prior. I quickly threw it into a bag of rice and placed it under a lamp to defrost. Three hours later I plugged it in. I wasn’t expecting much. I mean, really, it had been frozen in snow for the last two months! To my surprise, the phone displayed the low battery message. I thought, “This can’t be right. Something isn’t going to work.” Then the Apple logo popped up. I was pumped! I put in the SIM card and voila, my iPhone was back!!!! My apps, my contacts, my music and more importantly my life were back.
This poor iPhone has been through the dumps: It has fallen into a cup of coffee, it decided to take a swim in the toilet, and now it has survived a Canadian winter outside. Really what other phone has been through that much pain and suffering?
