    I damaged my iPhone 5 in water. I then dried it out in rice in the oven at 145 degrees for 36 hours. Now it shows a cable and the iTunes logo but nothing else. I tried restoring it thru iTunes. What next?

    A new one maybe next. You should have tried the rice minus the oven.

    Yeah, the rice would have been enough.

    What a bummer...Like everyone said, The rice more than likely would have worked. Never use heat of any kind.

    iPhone in a 146 degree oven for 36 hours is pretty intense. One of the basic device warnings is about not leaving a device in the sun in a car.

    Did you cover it with foil not that it would have made a difference

    I would have added a garlic butter sauce myself before covering it...
