So I was at a public restroom - actually in Jack in the Box to be precise and as I was doing some research my phone fell straight into the commode.

Now I immediately got out and informed the Manager. She was pleasantly surprised. And we yellow taped the whole thing down with "Out of order" sign.

It's a 300 dollar phone. Plus recently for 20 bucks I just put 2 gigs.

Now I have two choice. I can either mtfu (man the f up) and pick the phone up and put in chaaler bosta...

...or forget the whole thing happened.

Of course I am not looking for attention (then again some people assume that as if it's writ in stone that somehow looking for attention is "evil" or "illegal") but I should've asked this in Quora or Facebook, but the only problem with that approach is most people won't buy the fact that I was doing research on 15th century Russian cavalry and their superiority over Hungarian hussars in a public restroom.

What to do? What to do?

As of now, I immediately went to a nearby library and logged in and my phone still there.

Thank you BC bashi.

You are the best. muaah

Mahmud bhaiya, first, I need to know if you pooped or peed in the tlt and then dropped the phone in it.
Or was it after flushing. maybe you didn't do either number 1 or 2.
If the water was relatively clean (!), I pick it up and wash lightly in clean water...do not douse it water though. and then then I wipe it...then I would sprey a thin layer of 'enzyme cleaner'. And let it sit for a few minutes. and then wipe it clean and wash it lightly with clean water and wipe it again. We ahve 4 cats now that live with us. My wife and I use enzyme cleaner a lot...we have regular accident in the house form older cats and cats vomit etc.

But I fear since your phone sank in the toilet water it may be messed up. But, Calif is the most advanced environmentally strict state in the US, maybe at the stores, restaurant at O>C. you have dry toilet like Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Copenhagen and the phone might be okay, unless it dropped in ...

Sorry to hear this...let us know if you retrieved it fine and if it is working.

Did the girl manager and you looked for the phone in the toilet together? That itself is very exciting to tell you the truth. I really enjoyed that part of the otherwise disastrous situation/story.

Dearest BK,

Thank you for the response. You are much more efficient and faster than 911. And yes the manager was surprisingly a young cute California blonde and not a ugly hag as most managers are.

And no I did not invite her to the men's restroom. Besides the phone still has sensitive material and for some reason it is not turning itself off...

That's a negative on both counts.

I am really perspiring Bk da. Help! Help.. I am sooo nervous. On top of that if I ever return home without my mom, she will and I quote - pitaye amake durmuj banaye felbe.

That is the main concern. Or else I'd have literally thrown in 300 dallah in the toilet down the drain G-man. (NOT the member!)

Get the phone, clean it, if it works then sell it in Craigslist when you get another one. Loss ~couple of 100 bucks, gain - not to go through that disgusting feeling whenever it is touching your face.

Or keep using it with Bluetooth and speaker whenever possible. Keep sanitary wipes handy for after use such browsing, for instant gratification.

Either way, pick it up - faster the better.

''inna lillahi wa inna ilaahi rajioon'' - read it 70 + times, InshAllah a solution will be found.

“Truly! To Allah we belong and truly, to Him we shall return.”

Usually I practice that. Last time my Mum lost £1000+, she couldn't find it.
So I started reading it loudly in the house, and asked her to show me where she put it - it was found inside her big luggage, but went inside some layers, so it was hard to locate. But Alhamduillah found it. She looked for that more than a week.

I really appreciate the sentiment. I really do. But it would take an act of God or miracle to find a creative solution to this.

Only one I could think of should my phone have been synced, then my data would've been safe. But lol there was no way in hell I was gonna syn it with my home comp.

You know Manmood bhaiya, I never meant O.C. is not environmental like the rest of the Calif. O.C. is even more strict when it comes to enforcing green law, and it is a rich and progressive county. Those dry toilets that I am talking about, they do not have sitting water in the bowl, and do not spray or force water down to flush. it sends down a very high pressure, high force air to take down the excrement to the sewage. It leaves streaks on the side of the bowl wall though, depends on your diet. But the Scandinavians are into that.

Remember this, all fecal matter, excrement once was a dish full of fine food, steak, lobster, golda chigri, Paesh etc. ...all urine once was a gless of martini and Margarito. What goes in must come out, and it comes out and we do not like it. It's the bacteria in our stomach that we are carrying with us, Georgio perfume all the time, are the culprit. Our own body is the culprit...not the fine food and the exiting of now digested food.

In Japan, the good scientists have found a way to extract beef tissues from human fecal matters. And then they extracted enough to recreate a complete steak. And people are trying it in Japan. I am now wondering if that beef steak is halal or haram. If the original digested beef was halaa, can the by product second round steak be considered halal? I think I might open a thread on this....The (...) processed Beef Steak/Chop Thread.

Daddy, daddy, tell us about the time you met mommy.
Well, we were fishing for my phone through the bowl full of feces, when the stench was so overpowering, I turned my head to the side. It was then that our eyes met...

She asked "is this your phone?"
"No", I said. "That's a rather hard piece of turd."
And then we both laughed the nervous laugh.

Even to this day, whenever I walk into a public toilet and am overpowered with the stench of fecal excrement caked onto the walls, I thing of your mother and her sweet wonderful smile.

Some help:

The best thing to do after you drop your phone in the toilet is immediately turn the phone off (if it is on), and dry it off with clean, dry towels. Remove the battery (if you can), SIM card, and any other external components, such as headphones. Dry off your battery as quickly as you can, too.

Study: 1 in 6 Cell Phones Contaminated With Fecal Matter

What’s on your smartphone? Probably fecal matter, according to new research by London scientists.

That’s right, poop — on your phone. If it’s on your phone, it’s very likely on your hands too, say researchers from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and Queen Mary, University of London.

Researchers analyzed 780 swab samples — 390 from mobile phones and 390 from the hands that used them — in 12 U.K. cities. They found that 16% of both hands and phones were contaminated with E. coli, potentially illness-causing bacteria that is fecal in origin. The likely reason: because people don’t wash their hands after using the toilet.

Two Dead, Three Injured in Attempt to Get Cellphone out of Toilet

http://images.gawker.com/s5ukn5du7gdrppmrwhin/c_fit,fl_progressive,q_80,w_636.jpg

Two people are dead and three others were injured after a woman dropped her mobile phone into a pit toilet in China's Henan Province. The woman's husband climbed into the cesspit to retrieve the lost device, but fainted from the stench, initiating a series of rescue attempts that ended in tragedy.

The South China Morning Post reports that the husband's mother entered the pit to save him, but also instantly lost consciousness. The owner of the phone herself then entered the pit, suffering the same fate.

But I tried. No luck. Also no access to the p-trap.

I wish I could tell you and khalamma not to run water in the bathtub now and please do not use a snake or anything of that sort from a hardware/plumbing store. That will send the ring further down the waste pipe.

Dosto, It may have been a bit more successful to use a full strength flexible tube vacuum suction. Too bad, I thought of it later. If yours is a 2 story house, and the bathroom was on the second floor, we could have retrieved it with a lot better chance, still before water running and all though. It was Khalamma's ear-ring or a nose ring, right? And it had true sentimental value. I am so sorry.

In OC, you don't have have septic tank area in the yard? Maybe not, maybe all drains have direct flow connection to the city sewer?
