The downside to all of this awesome technology we're surrounded with nowadays is that it's expensive.

That's all well and good as long as you don't lose it, but when you do, it's a shot to the gut. A couple hundred bucks down the drain.

This guy, while out skiing, dropped his iPhone on a trip down the mountain.

He had the crazy idea to borrow a friend's metal detector and go iPhone hunting about a week later. Shockingly, after a little searching, he found it and it appeared to be unscathed.

But surely it wouldn't still work, right? Wrong!

While this is all well and good, c'mon man! Just turn on Find My iPhone! Or spend the few bucks a month on insurance!
