    My first phone died because I accidentally put it through the washing machine. I was covered in ketchup because I had to film a video for my history class (it was a Civil War reenactment, if you wanna know) and I was so eager to change out of my ketchup-covered pants that I forgot to take my phone out of my pocket. Well, needless to say, I found the one thing that can kill a Nokia flip phone - water. Facepalm

    Back when I had a Nokia E63 I was taking selfies in a hot tub and water must have gotten inside the phone because it started freaking out afterwards. I thought it was screwed but after about an hour it went back to normal. Good ol' Nokias aha.

    When I had my Samsung Galaxy, I accidentally dropped it on the ground while walking outside one day and the back fell off it, thus making the battery come out of it. At first I thought I had dropped the fucker so hard that it knocked something loose, something was vital to the phone turning on and off, but it turned out that my battery just fell out and the battery ended up at my feet. XD

    I had one of those cheap-o tracphone (but not a tracphone, forget who it was through) and I was washing my hands. Some how my whole body derped out on me and I ended up pushing the phone into the sink of running water. Freaking out I took the battery out immediately and sat it on my dresser for a full day. I just prayed that it would still work because... hey phones aren't cheap and I am a cheapskate. Well, put the battery back in and it powered on just fine. >.> Only problem I had was that I couldn't end a call, the other person had to do that. Which was just fine with me, lol.

    That was a good phone. Dropped multiple times. Was drowned. Thrown. Beaten and abuse and it never failed on me.

    I was thrown in the pool with my phone in my pocket. I had no time to warn my friends about my phone because they caught me by surprise. I'm not sure if they would have listened had I said something. Probably not. But well, it was a Nokia, so it was working perfectly again after a couple hours drying in the sun.

    I forgot a phone in a train's overhead rack. I guess it fell from my bag without me noticing. I was devastated.

    I forgot a phone in my class room in my last week of classes in high school. Someone found it and contacted me to go fetch it but I didn't even bother going, I was so fed up with school and sort of glad I got rid of that phone, I didn't like it at all lmfao

    Dropped a phone in the beach, never managed to get all the sand out of it.

    About two years ago I used to have these anger outbursts and I often threw my phone against the wall Facepalm. It was another Nokia so even being so severely abused only two buttons stopped working, it looked like hell, but worked perfectly. Until the day it started acting up and doing all sort of weird stuff so I had to get a new one.

    My first iPhone fell from the fell from the balcony of a friend's apartment. It was in the 5th floor but it just got a few scratches and the screen cracked a bit on the corner.

    Nothing major happened with my current phone, except for that time when it was swimming a puddle of coke when a friend knocked his bottle of coke and me dropping it every once in a while.
