iPhone submerged!!! HELP!!!
Ok, so I cooking supper just now, and my iPhone got knocked into a bowl of water. It had nothing but water in it (I was washing some asparagus). It was only in there for about .5 seconds, but it was dripping water when I got it out. I dried it completely, and then took q-tips to dry out the holes (speakers and plug.) It is working completely fine, but I am worried about long term effects. ANY ADVICE?!?!?! I'M FREAKING OUT AT THE MOMENT!! Texting and internet works fine, everything. I'm afraid to plug it into anything or turn it off, in case it doesn't turn back on.

There are threads around here talking about how the geniuses at Apple stores give "first time offenders" a replacement phone. No guarantees, but you might get lucky if you're honest with them and cry a little. Sorry, I'm really not making light of your situation. Just saying. *

Ok, so I just said a HUGE prayer, took a HUMONGOUS risk, plugged it into my computer, and it synced JUST fine. It is charging perfectly. Only difference now is that is won't seem to make a sound. Imported pictures just fine. I'm about to turn it off, and turn it back on, so see how it goes. Thanks for y'alls help! If the sound is still not working after I turn it off and on, then I'm going to try a hard reset. I'll let y'all know how it goes, and again, THANKS FOR Y'ALLS HELP SOOO MUCH!!!!!

Well, I've got an appointment at the Apple Store tomorrow at 12:15. Any advice? The only thing that is wrong with it is that it won't turn off (I try to turn it off, and it just turns right back on) and the speakers won't work. Has anyone here had experience with the Apple Store in Willowbrook Mall in Houston? That's where I'm going, and I will take any advice! Thanks for y'alls help, and HOPEFULLY tomorrow will go like it needs to!!! Say a prayer for me!

Yeah, I'm DEFINITELY going with the puppy dog face, AND THE TRUTH. I'm from the South. I was taught to always tell the truth, no matter how bad the consequences. And this my friends, could have some GOD-AWFUL consequences. But I will definitely let y'all know how it goes.

Well, I put it in the bag of rice overnight. I got it out this morning, and all is back to normal! The speakers work again, and it will turn off and STAY turned off! I was planning on still going to the Apple Store, just for a diagnostic. Do y'all think this is a good idea?

Take it to the store, tell them what happened and they'll replace it - it's just a matter of how much it's going to cost you to replace it.

So I took it to the Apple Store. I told him my story, and he said that since it is working fine, then he wasn't too worried. I asked him to run a diagnostic, and he did. Nothing was wrong with it. He then took it in the back to clean out the ports. When he brought it back, he said that everything on the inside looked great. He even said that the moisture indicators had not been activated! So, I'm not so worried anymore. I honestly think that if it would have been needed to be replaced, he would have found a way to do it for free. This experience reassures my beliefs in Apple!

Another trick it to used packages of silica desiccant. You know those little sugar packet-looking things that say "Don't eat"? Thats silica desiccant. You can buy it at craft stores and online.
While rice works, it doesn't draw moisture out like desiccant will. The silica will work faster and better, and its reusable.
Really glad everything worked out for you. God answers our prayers about even the most minor of things.
