Just read this article and thought I'd share with the class. What surprised me was how fast the iphone quit working. One thing to take away from this is to keep your phone in the same layer as the live bait. :winker :respect

wish they would've tested more brands though.

I don't have an iPhone. I have a generic Samsung, It makes phone calls, text, and takes really poor pictures.

A few weeks ago, with the first snow storm, I was out sledding with my daughter. I hit an ant mound and flipped over. My phone, unbeknownst to me, flung out of my side pant pocket.

I had no idea it was gone until I went home. I checked my e-mail for updates on the next days ice fishing excursion and saw "Did you get my text?"

I looked for my phone. Gone.

I took my wife's phone and headed back, it has been a few hours. . I went in the same general area that I flipped over and dialed. I heard nothing. I called again and saw a small rectangle glow underneath a few inches of fluffy snow.

My phone.

It was wet, it was outside in the cold and it worked.

Still don't think I'll get a iPhone for some time.

I second Bubba.... if it that cold, you're usually not out there anyways.

But, I have hunted in temps as cold a 5 degrees this year and never had an issue with my iPhone 4. I believe the reason for this is because most of the time it is in a pocket, staying at a more reasonable temp from my body heat. Only comes out for a minute or so at a time. How many times do you take your phone out and leave it out for an extended period of time? None for me....

I jog in the cold and I have to put my IPOD in an inside pocket close to my body whenever the weather is much under 40 degrees. If I carry my IPOD in my hand when its cold, I'll get 10 minutes before the battery is gone.

Now my cell is fine but it's a vintage flip :lol: !
