How Deep a Toilet Can You Drop Your Phone Into?

Admit it. The first time you dropped your phone into the toilet, you were hoping, seriously hoping, somewhere in the back of your mind, that it would never turn on again. Maybe Critical Bill would not be bothered, but most of us might have considered leaving it there. But alas, if your phone has an IP rating, you will likely find yourself fishing it out if to only protect your private data. GreenBot has an article that explains to us what those pesky IP ratings actually mean. But will you ever press it against your face again?
