    My contract is up for renewal anyway. Seriously the thing wasn't even in liquid a split second :ugh: It's been thru me talking on it on the rain before while walking to my truck so I didn't think twice, just pulled everything apart and used the blow dryer with no heat.

    EDIT: Plus it would take like a week at least for something to get here from eBay. :hs: I need my phone since we don't use the landline anymore.

    I'd cry if I lost my cell phone. There are 451 phone numbers in the phone book. :noes:

    i feel your pain, i have about 300, but theres a beautiful thing for verizon customers
    if you use their online program for your bill you can get backup assistant for free
    i bought a new phone, downloaded the software and told it to update my address book :)
    i had all my phone numbers back in about 3 minutes :o

    here is the link to the online portion, but you have to download it to your phone from get it now
    https://www.getbackupnow.com/

    if you look there is a portion that tells you its free for online users





    Pricing: $1.99 monthly access
    Free for My Account customers



    if you dont have verizon i would look into something similar for whatever company you use, it is soooo worth it, even if it was 2 bucks a month

    dont use the store, use the little program on your phone that u can download
    seriously im sure all phones have something similar

    https://wirelessbackup.sprint.com/signon.do

    idk what it costs for sprint, but the first time i lost all my numbers i would have paid 10 bucks a month for something to get them back
    i didnt realize how important it was till i lost them all

    It's been apart for a few hours and I ran a hair dryer over the phone several times when it first happened with low/no heat. :hs: Boots to "Hello Moto" then blank screen.

    YAY! Here's a hint for Moto RAZR users... there's a red dot inside your phone if it gets wet blow dry it! No new phone needed! :wiggle: Now I can do some retail therapy instead....

    Sprint's wireless backup is $2/mo. I currently use it and it already saved me once!

    :hyper: don't tell me that... it's working fine. And I really want to go blow $1-200 on new clothes from the clearance rack, shoes for school, and new boots for riding horses. :o
