Fishing for an iPhone 4, 6 months later…

Ken Hovanes learned this the hard way when he accidentally dropped his iPhone in a lake about six months ago. The water in the lake was 2m deep and murky back then so Ken gave up on retrieving the device and bought a new iPhone.

But well, times are tough.

6 months later, he came back. When the lake was clear. Beautiful. But dirty.

And he was surprised to find his phone sitting exactly where he dropped it. The phone was living with the fishes for 6 MONTHS! What surprised him most, the device still works!

The battery is dead (you can see the bulge on the back), there’s no Wi-Fi, and the screen is all messed up. The rusty 30-pin port supplies the phone with power, but won’t transfer data just yet. Yes, the newly found iPhone won’t win a beauty contest and it’s hardly usable, but Ken has high hopes (and high chances) of finding a way to offload the photos from the device.

So well, what do you have in the “iPhone Water Stories”

Let us know!
