Question by Courtney: what would happen if i put my cell phone in a microwave?
i got my phone about a year and a half ago, and ever since i have had non-stop problems with it! i have had it sent in 4 times to repairs and it keeps coming back broken. i just got it back yesterday from it being repaired and the didn’t even last the day. basically i need to completely fuck up my phone in order to get a replacement. the annoying thing is that i have explained this to them plus called customer service and they keeps saying “just send it in to get it repaired” so to break my phone im debating between putting it in water, putting it in the microwave or snapping it in half. i know i sound like a spoiled brat, but really im just a customer that wants a working phone. anyways what should i do to make it look like a complete accident? icon wink what would happen if i put my cell phone in a microwave?

A mobile phone (also known as a cellular phone, cell phone and a hand phone) is a device that can make and receive telephone calls over a radio link whilst moving around a wide geographic area. It does so by connecting to a cellular network provided by a mobile phone operator, allowing access to the public telephone network. By contrast, a cordless telephone is used only within the short range of a single, private base station.

In addition to telephony, modern mobile phones also support a wide variety of other services such as text messaging, MMS, email, Internet access, short-range wireless communications (infrared, Bluetooth), business applications, gaming and photography. Mobile phones that offer these and more general computing capabilities are referred to as smartphones.

The first hand-held mobile phone was demonstrated by Dr Martin Cooper of Motorola in 1973, using a handset weighing around 1 kg.[1] In 1983, the DynaTAC 8000x was the first to be commercially available. In the twenty years from 1990 to 2011, worldwide mobile phone subscriptions grew from 12.4 million to over 5.6 billion, penetrating the developing economies and reaching the bottom of the economic pyramid.

    It depends on whether accidents are covered in your plan. If you paid the extra to have a replacement plan, an accident is probably covered. Water damage and other accidents are not covered by a warranty. If you put it in the microwave, it will probably catch on fire, and might destroy your microwave too. Can you afford a new phone and a new microwave?

    alright, definitely don’t put it in water because there are 3 water sensors on every phone (one on the inside, one on the battery, and one on the internal hardware) and if you get a phone wet that doesn’t get you a knew one. water damage isn’t under the warranty. Try putting a strong magnet up to it. Breaking it in half, again, isn’t under warranty so don’t do that. And last but not least, putting a phone in the microwave would make it most likely blow up which would also cause damage to the microwave and sadly exploding phone is,again, not under warranty. so, I’d say

    1. put a magnet up to it
    2. drop it, not from a far height cause if the screen cracks they’ll know it was dropped and they wont fix it. drop it till the insides break.
    3. if you do try getting it wet take out the battery and look for the other sensor to try and cover. only use small amount of water to try and short the system

    call the company and tell them that you dropped your phone on while you was painting your house on the roof. then break the phone into pieces. But when that happens do not use your phone at all because they will know that you was lying.
