There is one mobile phone fact which never fails to amaze me, and that is that every year an estimated 800,000 British people damaged their mobile phones by dropping them down the toilet. Water is obviously very damaging to your mobile phone, a fact which instantly springs to mind if you're unfortunate enough to damage your phone in this manner.
A couple of stories which I have heard to illustrate the dangers, firstly a large American man who tried to retrieve his mobile phone after it fell down the public sewer drain. Upon removing the cover and trying to get his head and arms down to find his phone, he overbalanced and became wedged. By the time he was rescued he had drowned.
Have you a mobile phone? It would be a fairly safe guess that you always have because, it's a fact we almost all have a phone. If you are one of the more wealthy folk who possesses a spanking new expensive phone then you really must think about mobile phone insurance.
It's not very expensive, and when you take into account the cost of being charged for a new phone, it's quite a good buy. Regardless if your phone is subject to a mobile contract and the company replaces it, they will nevertheless bill you the full price for the replacement mobile.
Just how many pieces of electronic gadgetry do we carry around on a daily basis? First and foremost is probably the mobile phone. Next up is the ipod or MP3 player for our entertainment purposes. A camera, laptop computer, calculator and so on.
Wouldn’t it be great to be able to combine each of those into one hi-tec gadget? Well now we can. Enter the iPhone.
The iPhone is not so much a phone that you have to personally adapt yourself to use; you configure it and add applications to suit the way you want to use it. And it’s gorgeous to look at as well.
Browsing through pages on the internet, you will find a multitude of companies and websites selling iPhone spares and equipment, enabling you (at a cost) to carry out repairs yourself.
The most common repair needed to the iPhone is the need to replace a cracked or damaged screen. Simply to buy a new screen will cost you at least £50. In addition you will need to purchase some tools with which to open up your precious phone. These cost about another £15, but be warned, even then it’s not easy.
