    then grabbed it immediately and turned it off and removed the battery/sd card

    turned it on the next morning (dumb) and it worked fine except some screen defects at certain angles (no big deal). After a while it flickered then turned off so I pulled the battery again and havent touched it.

    The markers are red on the battery AND phone.

    What if it's destroyed? Will my insurance cover it? What can I do?. Am I screwed?

    Ugh

    Insurance I believe will cover it but verizons warranty will not. You will have to pay whatever deductible you have with your insurance company.

    If the phone does not work take the high road and tell the insurance company what happend. Hopefully, they will accept the copay and send you a replacement.

    Depending on what insurance you bought I think some (most? all?) cover all damages, except for theft.

    So it worked for a while and now the screen is black. I can answer calls because I know where to slide my finger but I can't see anything :(

    everytime I read threads titled this, I always think from that point on, whenever the person posts

    "this dude/chick has stuck their hand in a place where I drop dueces"

    why would you WANT to use your phone after its bee there

    Because to me grabbing a phone that fell into a "clean" toilet (one that did not have urine or **** in it) is more worth it than spending $90.....

    I mean I know what you're saying but really?


    ---

    anyways, they're sending me a new droid that will be here on tuesday. sucks I flushed $90 down the toilet (pretty much literally...) but at least im getting a new phone soon.

    a toilet is like a gun... once you load a gun, it's never ever considered unloaded ever again. Same goes for toilets and crap.
