    What happened to one man's phone might just prove that cell phones are built to last these days.

    Oklahoma farmer, Kevin Whitney never thought he would see his iPhone again when he dropped it into a bin filled with 280,000 pounds of grain.

    In nine months, the phone traveled to another grain facility in Oklahoma. Then, it sailed along the Arkansas River, down the Mississippi and to Louisiana.

    The phone ended up in Japan. That's when Whitney received a phone call.

    Looking for Whitney, the man asked, "Did you lose a cell phone?"

    "Yeah I lost a cell phone last fall," responded Whitney.

    A worker at a grain mill in Japan found it and mailed it back to Whitney.

    Whitney wants to find a way to thank him.
