I was slightly worried when my iPhone got waterlogged today (from all the rain) but I figured all I could do was take it home and see if it dried out; if it didn't, I'd have to make an online appointment at the Genius Bar. All the hipsters from Brooklyn use the Apple Store on Prince street, so it's always booked up.

The worst thing is I couldn't talk on it; the earpiece was waterlogged so I couldn't hear and didn't know if I connected when I called home.

This is why I hang onto my little "welfare" phone, and try to use it once a month—if only to make a test call—so it will stay active. Fortunately my iPhone dried out and worked again.
