According to the official site, the service provides data recovering from unintended submersion. Recovered data such as contacts and texts will be burnt into CD-R and returned in about 2 weeks. The rate is 5250 yen(about 60 dollars tax inculuded.)
The probability of recovering is about 70% approximately, rather a good bet. Whether they succeeded or not, the device will be discarded but they won't charge if they missed. And also there's No reissue of CD-R becuase of their privacy policies.
