Nokia 1600 Found Still Functional In A Fish’s Stomach

Posted Feb 28, 2009

Andrew Cheatle was on a boat and his phone fell out into the sea.  It turns out that a 25 lb. cod fish ate the phone.  One week later, Cheatle’s girlfriend received a phone call from a fisherman saying that he found the phone in the fish.  The phone was still functional even after that journey.

?I was messing about with my dog and my phone must have fallen out and been swept out in the swell.  I kept calling it but I gave up hope after a couple of days,? stated Cheatle in an interview with The Sun UK.

Cheatle and his girlfriend were shopping for a new cellphone when the phone rang.

?I thought he was winding me up but he assured me he had caught a cod that morning and was gutting it for his fish stall and that my Nokia was inside it ? a bit worse for wear,” stated Cheatle.  “I didn?t believe him but went to meet him and found it was my phone ? a bit smelly and battered ? but incredibly it still worked after I let it dry out.?
