Amazing ways people have broken their mobile phone

Have you ever broken your mobile phone in a rather bizarre way?

A few weeks ago a lovely frined of mine dropped her phone in the toilet and done a little wee on it. Sadly it is no more. I have to say it did make me giggle. I have (touch wood) never yet broken one of my phones but I have heard some CRAZY! stories about how other people have.



Listen to these 5 strange but true tales of a mobiles demise from the folks at iMend (who hear all there is to hear about broken mobile phones.)

It’s a dogs life….

One lady reported how she threw a ball for her dog but accidently let her phone go at the same time.Sadly the dog decided to catch Sigh

Oopsy daisy (x2!)

Another  lady shared  “Somehow my phone fell out of my handbag as I ran across the car park in the rain. Someone then ran over it.”

Doggone it!

One person’s friend’s dog ran off with their mobile when he heard the ring tone (cats meowing) and the mobile was never seen again. Ha!

Magicked Away

Another disappearing act. A magician used his dads phone to do the ‘ol smash the phone with the hammer and miraculously repair trick’… sadly the last bit didn’t work!!

Washed Away

One lad decided to give his phone a really good clean when he didn’t realise that it was in his pocket before he put it in the washer. It certainly cleaned out the data!


Whilst these stories are a great laugh  I guess its not quite so funny for the one whose phone had the mishap !
