LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Losing a beloved cell phone can be devastating.

However, Josh Rachford and John McNamee help people mourn their loss by giving their phones a proper goodbye on PhoneFuneral.com.

It’s hard seeing a phone die since, as McNamee puts it, “You talk to it more than any other person and it knows more about you than anybody else.”

But it especially hurts when human error is to blame.

Says Rachford: “It’s not like a phone dies of natural causes. A lot of the time you do something really stupid that kills it.”

The duo have seen good cell phones die young by being frozen in ice, crushed to bits, and broken clean in half, and it’s usually the pricey ones that destruct the easiest.

McNamee explains, “Crappy phones are invincible. They’re like cockroaches. These phones will survive the nuclear holocaust. So it’s a surprise when we see those destroyed.”
