    Having thrown a phone in a river before, I'd say one per the entire population of London and whatever other cities line the Thames.

    Glimpses do ye seem to see of that mortally intolerable truth; that all deep, earnest thinking is but the intrepid effort of the soul to keep the open independence of her sea; while the wildest winds of heaven and earth conspire to cast her on the treacherous, slavish shore?

    There are enough phones at the bottom of the Thames. I don't need a phone at the bottom of a river.

    Not enough to pose a hazard to navigation, anyway.

    Well, I'll take that into consideration. If I don't get back to you, just assume I'm still waiting on approval. Bureaucracy- don't you love it?

    Ehh, you choose your own path! It's easier to ask for forgiveness than it is permission.

    I honestly don't think there is enough recorded data out there to accurately estimate (even within 10k +/-) the amount of cell phones at the bottom of the river.

    One.

    A cell phone is a concept copied a billion times with no meaningful variation. Saying that one cell phone is different from another is like saying that the this "A" is a different letter from that "A". Different position. Different context. Same thing.
