I am a full time RV'er. I spend about a total of 3 months at home and the rest out on the open road. I was in Florida close to a year ago at my site and my cell phone must have fallen out of my pocket where I put up the hammock. I bought a replacement and had that one shut off and last Monday I was at the same exact campsite. My new cell phone is the same because I don't like all this new technical "smart" phones they got out because i can't use them anyways. The battery has been actin up for a month or so now like it won't stay charged. I got to thinking maybe my other phone is still laying around. I had a good idea that I lost it in the hammock but was not for sure. I just knew I lost it somewhere there. Sure enough, it was right at the base of that old pine tree. It didn't come on and I really didn't expect it to work, but I plugged it in and it charged and the battery was fine! I got some of my old contacts off from it and put that battery in my new phone lol. Gotta love a Samsung for it not ruining the phone for being out in the rain forever, but can't love them too much cause my newer one shouldn't have had problems anyways. Still though it was neat that it was still there and someoen else hadn't put it in their pocket by now.
