In fact, you can! 

They make great door stops, paper weights and in a pinch, skeet targets. :gsbrnint:

Maybe, but I was shopping phones for my sweetie just a year ago and the motorola was renowned for it's mild and brief resistance to dowsings.   

      Shopping for phones was a freak show.   I've had two phones in the past 25 years that I kept for two or three months each , one was a bag phone and the other I deactivated in 2009.  I just got another activated a month or two ago, a dumb phone,  pay as you go and I don't go much.

i just use mine in the shower so i can watch youtube videos. Doesn't even have a phone plan since i would have no one to talk too... :'(

It's funny though, yes smartphones are addictive but no one ever talks about computer addiction.

 

Also yes sometimes i browse COP naked. Go on, picture it!

I could go without computers and Internet right now instantly and never see one again if that was the case. I pray that this happens actually. Computers and technology is the worst thing to happen to human civilization ever. Created hell on earth. Bunch of f**king idiots everywhere. 👍🏻💪🏻😀 But hey what are you gonna do right.

The shower is my most favorite place, always has been :P. I live in a house with a full sized water heater though so, but it wasn't always so  :(. Just toss the phone up on a shower shelf, watch the video while you clean. cover the camera unless you want the NSA to see your junk.
