New in this town
Hey guys and gals - I'm new around here so bare with me a bit
I did the unthinkable yesterday and exposed my phone to water No not just a little droplet of water either like submerged sink water. I got it out as quickly as possible. Naturally powered it off , Dried it out where I could blew into the exposed parts to attempt to dry the water where I could. Waited a long time before I powered back up.
The visible signs for water exposure are all at the normal. White papers are all white and I see no Pink/red glows or lights or anything.
My question is this, the phone appears to be working fine, Response time is okay touch screen is okay. Is there anywhere internally I can look that it would have recorded it electronically?

Ive read this thread already. As I said sensors are clear visibly but anything internally? Im not trying to fraud apple but if it didn't trip the white papers then Im assuming it didn't get it too wet. Maybe Im just lucky? I dunno? Im being over paranoid and ever little thing I see weird Im like uhoh.

Well I will say that water wasn't POURING out of it or anything weird.
I will say the only thing I've oticed thats puzzling with it is when I wake it up with the multifunction button, it takes like a quarter of a millisecond if its at a cold wake up. I tried to time it with my wife's 3GS and they are pretty close to timing, other than that I cant see any lag time.
Is there something I can look for on the phone itself like a hidden menu that would have Water sensory in it?

I would count my blessings and not look for trouble; next thing you know you'll be taking it apart to get a closer look at the internals! If you can live without it for a couple of days, the rice idea is a good one, or better yet, find a good supply of silica desiccant packs and use those.
