That stinks! our son drops his phone in the lake and river when he goes fishing and so far they have all dried out, make sure you remove the battery and let it sit on A towel to absorb all the water, it takes A few days sometimes but I think you will have some luck.

Under ideal conditions, one would take out the battery, and let the phone dry for several days...

I don't think the battery is removable from an Iphone(not sure?)

I'd reccomend turning it off, and putting it in something desiccant for at least 24hrs-- dry rice/tupperware container should work.

I wish you the best of luck with your iphone

Fester beat me to it!! I was going to also suggest putting it in rice, which is supposed to draw out the moisture. A really good tip in case that happens to anyone else!

Glad your phone came back to life! I think I would die if my iphone broke. :Sweat:
