5 common ways customers broke their phone

As the leading phone repair and customisation service, we hear alot of interesting stories on phone breakages. Here's 5 common ways customers managed to break their phone.
1) On the toilet
No one likes to flush money down the toilet, but it seems consumers are accident prone to do just that with their mobile. Almost half of all mobiles that have suffered water damage is due to an incident involving the toilet. (Remember to wash your hands!)
That's right, the feline vandal can often be the culprit in breaking your beloved phone. Cats enjoy nothing more than knocking anything precious off your table or window sill, with your phone being no exception.
Why do cats commit this wanton act of destruction? "Veterinarian Dr. Ellen Whiteley says that If your cat is bored — or if she wants to alert you to the fact that it’s feeding time — then a surefire way to get your attention is to do what has proven to work in the past. And that means anything that’s not nailed down like a phone may end up crashing to the floor."
3) In the washing machine
You've had a hard day in the office, all you want to do is strip off for bed and discard your clothes into the wash. But be sure to always check your back pockets for passengers before loading up the drum!
(Judging by the amount of people that seem to use their phone on the toilet, its probably a good thing that phones commonly take a ride in the washing machine)
4) Dropped in the tub
Originally it was those romantic novels or the morning paper, but we've become so dependent on our phones, that we can't even take a "relaxing" bath without checking our facebook feed or playing CandyCrush. Soap, water and mobiles make a bad trio!
5) Fell off the car roof
You were searching for your keys, placed the phone on the roof of your car, forgot about it and drove off......Whoops...
