If it wasn't the new watered down Makers Mark then the iPhone might make it.

Haha, I knew someone would ask this! It was an Ultimate Long Island Iced Tea at TGI Friday's.

Wow, that's a pretty stout dose of alcohol, I hope your phone wasn't driving ...

Putting any device in RICE - WET - think about it REALLY.

Long term wet for days in RICE vs a few minutes exposed / baked with heated air - like electronics have been made for 50 years.

All I can say - you've created a bio hazard - with electrons & live circuits.
There is no absolute disconnect from the battery.

Farmers start seeds in wetness.


Quote by member -
"Yes, putting it in a closed container will help".
WTH - keep the moisture locked in? - same for keeping cheese fresh.
Where do people come up with such nonsense?


Salt water is a different story.
But deep soak rinsed in fresh water immediately could save it.

Guys with 10K cameras fallen in the ocean - usually instant permanent death if not flushed.
And dried quickly

I think your phone should be fine even without all the right precautions and remedys you took. iPhone 4 through 5 are pretty compact that a second in water shouldn't effect it

Leave it off and don't even attempt to turn it on until it is fully dried which can take days at ambient room temp.
