 Don't Drink and Text on Your Phone

Using your mobile phone under the influence of alcohol damages your phones as there are more chances of dropping them, says a new study.

The study by CouponCodesPro.com reveals that one in three American iPhone owners is using a damaged handset and 47 percent of those phones were messed up by people who were messed up on booze and sloppily dropped their phone on a hard surface, the New York Post reported.

The survey of 2,487 US citizens ages 18 and up also found that other than alcohol, the most common causes of damaged phones were young children (19 percent), clumsiness (17 percent), water (9 percent) and pets (4 percent).

George Charles, financial spokesperson for CouponCodesPro.com, said that it's a sad fact that phones of all makes and models are damaged across America every hour of every day.

However, they have noticed a significant increase in the number of visitors searching for iPhone repairs when compared to any other kind of handsets.
