What It’s Like Dropping Your Phone Into Water, As Told By Disney

If you’ve been there before, you know what we’re talking about. Through some cruel twist of fate, a critical moment of clumsiness, a regretful slip of the fingers, your phone topples from your grasp, from your purse, from your pocket, into the irreversible clutches of that fickle mistress, H20.

Until you get a new phone, that is.
