Last year, moisture condensed in my phone during a monsoon trek and it stopped working. I couldn't decide on what phone to get next, and thought I'd wait for a while and ended up waiting for 43 days until I got another phone.
Here's some of my observations from the notes I made back then:
People often talk about how we're all dependent on our phones. Now in my case I still had a T9 phone (dumb phone?) so I could make calls or send texts when I had to. But in general I din't miss my phone that much. It was just more of an inconvenience that anything else.
