    Unhappy :(
    I just broke my iphone -_-'

    Anyone got a spare for sale? =/

    Im kind of ashamed to post this but, i knocked the phone in the toilet... (clean water of course) but has any one encountered getting their iphones wet, letting them dry for a couple of days, and then having them work again?

    Specs:
    20" Intel iMac 2.4 Ghz/3G Ram/320HD, Snow Leopard. PBook G4, 1.5Ghz/1.5 Ram/250 HD, Leopard 10.5.6.
    Open it as much as possible and put it on top of a heat source to force any water out by evaporation.
    So, battery cover off and card out, leave it open and place it face down.
    Good luck!

    BTW, doesn't this highlight people's obsession with having their phone on them at ALL times!

    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    When I got my phone soaked I put it in a bowl of uncooked rice. It soaked up the water pretty effectively Its worth giving a shot.

    Definitely put it in some dry rice. It'll soak the water right out of it.
