    My Dad

    My Dad just nuked a Note 8 I gave him in the microwave. The phone had the water symbol when it was trying to charge. I left it and came back after trying to call Verizon about something. The phone looked funny to me. He said we need to throw it out. Turns out he tried to dry the condensation by putting it in the microwave. I can not believe I had the phone for almost two years with all kinds of cases and two glass screen protectors to end up being nuked in a microwave. I will never give any of my used phones to him again. Well it like they always say easy come easy go.

    I have a similar problem with my son. I will have a phone that I've been using over a year, and he renders it unusable in 2 weeks. Somehow puts it in factory reset mode with no idea how he did it.
    My guess is he put it in his pocket before hitting the power button to put the phone to sleep. While bouncing around in his pocket lots of icons and buttons got pushed. By serendipity the factory reset was picked?
    Well at least he didn't screw up the Nokia 6010 I gave him 10 years ago, still works fine as a backup phone.

    By the end of 2022 or earlier, that might no longer be an option since it is 3G and lacks 4G (VOLTE).
    Just another day in paradise.....
