Thanks! and Some Advice…
Last Tuesday, as my friend and I walked along the water on Beach 100 Street, my friend dropped his cell phone and my car keys into the water. We didn't realize the car keys were missing until later on, and I couldn't find them in the surf. Then, this Saturday, as we again walked along the beach, there were my rusty car keys on a bench on the boardwalk. So I want to thank whoever found them and put them in a noticeable place.
And my friend's cell phone is now working too. We took it apart immediately and set it in front of a fan to dry for two days. Then my friend unscrewed all the pieces of the phone, blew the sand and salt out, and now it works as well as it did before! I hope this will be useful information if this happens to someone else.
