Yes I would, after it has been properly cleaned ofcourse. The worst part would be getting the thing out of the toilet though! I think a lot of phones could survive being under water for a minute or two, but some will ofcourse fail and require repairs or replacement, which sucks.

It has never happened to me till now, but well it depends on the quality of cell phone, some are water proff, one can take out, wash well using good quality scented soap and use after drying, is there any harm? Thanks for sharing Cheers. God bless you, have a nice day ahead. Professor ‘Bhuwan’. .

If my cellphone drop down in the toilet, I will try to take it out from the stinky hole. That is my only cellphone!! My steps: Take a deep breath, look into the hole, say goodbye to your hand, try to pick up your phone in the 'fresh' water, after pick the phone out, wash YOUR HAND!, wipe your phone, dry it and try to use it. If the phone won't work anymore, just bury your cellphone... One of my friends told me some good info. If my phone drop down into water, remove the battery from the back of your phone and let it dry out naturally for a few days. Don't forget to wipe any excess water!.

I would pick it up immediately and turn it off and take the battery out. I may also just bring it to be repaired or just let it dry. Put it inside a plastic bag and place the plastic with phone in a box of rice. It is said that the moist or wetness of the phone would be gone because the water would be absorbed. Keep it there for a few days and never dry it using a blower.

it already happened to me. My cellphone dropped on the toilet, i even washed it on the sink and I let it dry. When it is already dry I use it again and fortunately I still can use it. When it dropped on the toilet I quickly pick it up. i do not care if the toilet is dirty, for me what is important is my phone .

I know its a dirty situation and i mostly stays neat and clean but i am poor guy and cant afford to buy a new one so i will close my eyes and wrap my hand with some plastic shopping bags and dig it out of it because i was collecting money from last 1 year to buy this one and i cant afford another one. I will never share this with anyone and claims that it fell in my bath tub.

I will pick up it again, clean it with water and dry it until I can use it again. I will open my cellphone end clean every part with disinfectant. after do tahat I will use it again, buying a new cell phone will be a great deal, I have to very wise to spend money this day and all my friend number is on that phone. Don't worry it wold not happen to me because I will never bring my cellphone to toilet.
