My sources tell me that the friend was none other than Steve Jobs and that he actually threw his friend's Galaxy S III into the toilet just to iSobatage the device's imminent launch.

Already knew it was fake when it was surfaced last month.
Originally thought guy tried taking a lighter and burning it from the outside though.

Sheesh, now seeing it open it is clear it wasn't the phone. Only thing that could blow up is the stupid battery.

There are idiots on both sides of the table. Just use the app Yodamap and you'll want to curl into a fetal position due to the stupid.

Oh hey. It's the newbie. Hi newbie.

I do agree that this was beyond stupid. Not the first time I've ever seen someone lie to get s**t replaced though.

What part am I missing? The guy had a stupid friend, got his phone broken by that friend, and when he was exposed told the truth about it after lying and trying to fool representatives at Car phone Warehouse.

Snig, these idiots always have some excuse or conspiracy theory behind their blind sheepness. They just can't accept some stupid kid tried to put his phone in the microwave to dry out the water.
