1) In the toilet

2) Cats

Cats enjoy nothing more than knocking anything precious off your table or windowsill, 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

But be sure to always check your back pockets for passengers before loading up the drum! (Judging by the number of people that seem to use their phone on the toilet, it's probably a good thing that phones commonly take a ride in the washing machine)

4) Dropped in the tub
