    An Oklahoma farmer has been reunited with his iPhone after it traveled to Japan over the duration of nine long months. Back in October, Kevin Whitney dropped his phone into a bin that was full of 280,000 pounds of grain.

    Back in October, Kevin Whitney dropped his phone into a bin that was full of 280,000 pounds of grain.

    Whitney explained “I had it in my pocket and I bent over to work on a hopper bottom door and it fell out of my pocket into my grain pit and went up the elevator… I thought I’ll never see that phone again.”

    It was eventually sent to Kashima, Japan by ship. The device was mixed in with 2 million bushels of grain.

    This past week, a man found the phone and called up Whitney asking if he’d lost it. Of course, he was shocked, as Whitney believed his phone was gone for good.
