Wow came across the great ad on Craigslist – this sounds EXACTLY like my phone!!! Gosh I would snatch this deal up in a second…
Waterdamaged IPhone 3GS 32GB – $100 (Philadephia)
Interested in owning a glorified a piece of Philadelphia history?
This phone has been everywhere, even underwater!
Basically here’s the deal – I fell into a lake last summer with my phone in my pocket (thanks alcohol!) which I immediately powered off and threw in a bag of rice. A few days later it started to work again – but the screen was dim and power randomly cut off.
SO while on a trip to Vietnam (YEAH THIS PHONE HAS BEEN TO VIETNAM!!!! ) I had to screen replaced with a new one (50 bucks) and what used to be my electronic life partner has turned into a glorified first generation iPod.
Here’s the “damage” as far as I can surmise.
-power will randomly cut-off in the middle of games, apps, web browsing, etc. This happens like twice an hour.
-not sure about the ability to make calls – I switched service soon after “the incident”
-top button (sleep button) inoperable.
Once charged up you can still use any other function available on the phone. If you own a repair business or something I surmise you can fix it pretty quick. The screen is brand new so at least you can scrap that for parts…
Other than that it is “fully functional” and perfect for whoever the hell will actually give me 100 bucks for this thing
