Not worth it. Not even remotely.
A 16-year old Dover, U.K. teen had to be rescued by firefighters after she descended (about half-way) into a storm drain in a misguided attempt to fetch her Blackberry, which had apparently fell out of her pocket.
“I was talking to somebody and I went to put my phone in my pocket and it fell down the drain…I thought to myself, ‘I’m not leaving this’ and I jumped down to get it. I wasn’t really even stuck, I just needed somebody to help lift me out but my mum got all panicky,” she said.
“Stuck” or not, girl, you couldn’t get out of the drain.

You can’t make this stuff up, folks.
As for the phone, well, it’s broken. I guess it’s time for an upgrade.
You gotta admire the girl’s tenacity, I guess. I’ve gone to some fair lengths to save my phone from peril, so I can relate. If you’re going to jump in a hole, however, just make sure you have the arm strength to push yourself back up. Or just say screw it and buy a new phone.
