i dropped my iphone down the toilet today
i'm soooo gutted i love it, i have put it in some dry rice as i've heard that dries it out... it's been in there for a few hours and the screen is still blank but it does ring and i can answer it.
has anyone used the rice drying out technique and it's worked? is there any hope for my best friend the iphone
I used to work for a mobile phone company and this was one of the secret tricks we used to advise for people who dropped phones in toilets/pints. My mum successfully saved her phone doing this too. Leave it in the rice overnight Hope it works!
I did the exact same thing last week and the rice 'trick' worked (also put it on a cushion on a warm radiator, airing cupboard would work too if you have one) though the battery life isn't what it was, I can live with that though!
you have to take the whole thing apart for it to work otherwise water hides in tiny places and discharges the battery.
The rice thing is ment to have a realy good success but I didnt find out about it till a few days after my phone got wet and I lost the first birth photos and first step video of my son on that phone
