October 30, 2013 No Comments

The picture below was uploaded by a Nokia fan from Sweden and shared on Facebook by Nokia. The user shared a story that he lost his Nokia Lumia 800 in a lake but after 3.5 months, he found it – cleaned it up and it actually worked after charging.

Hello! Just wanted to share with me about this dear Nokian who disappeared in a sea of 3.5 months ago. Found 3 weeks ago in between two rocks when it was low tide.
Took it home and started to clean as best as I could, shells and crap on display, green Goo around the entire phone + some other odds and ends. Let it dry on an element and then I put in the charging cable in the belief that either plug into the House or the charger apart
Imagine my surprise when it starts up as usual! Everything works just like before, the camera is Canon, the battery lasts two days, and so on. Much can be said but, quality that makes Nokia!

Looks like we will be hearing more about it and seeing if the whole story is true as Nokia resplied with the following.

Roger, my colleagues were very impressed and would like to make an article about your experience. If you want to set it up so please send us your email address in a private message to us here on Facebook.

Would love to hear the whole story and see some proof directly from Nokia. Sounds like a great story and shows exactly how tough these devices are.


Thanks Heatblast for the tip!
