It'd be fine sitting down on soft surfaces, like couches and armchairs, I guess... But it mustn't be comfortable sitting on something like a hard plastic chair

Keep it in rice for at least three days, then bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour and serve with fish. Actually, get another phone!!

Agreed, the OP should be more careful with his things.

Ok just saw all the replies & 1. I'm a girl not a guy, thank you very much. 2. Had it in my back pocket and wasn't going to even use my phone nor the toilet 3.I paid for it myself, not my parents 4. The first time I had to replace it was because I was with my siblings & had a big argument, let's just say I never expected my sister to go for my phone and slam it on the ground , I know crazy bitch.


So yea I have learned my lesson & my phone is sitting on rice as we speak for a week. If that doesn't work I'll end up getting another replacement, oh well.


& yes I understand a bunch of you saying "go ahead just get the replacement." But as its my last incident I'd prefer to wait this week and see if it works for a while before getting it replaced because you never know if I'd end up needing that replacement in the future, I know bad iPhone owner .


Again thank you all for your responses

Okay dude, first you need to help yourself & admit the real situation.


You were taking a poo, right? You were texting someone and due to the humidity of the region, your hands were clammy. You dropped the iphone into the poo pile in the toilet boil. Naturally, you grab the tongs and try to grab the phone only making the situation worse. Now you have a poo covered iphone. Desperately, you seek out the advice of MacRumors Forums members to try and help you alleviate the direness of the situation, although it's too late.

You breathe slowly and try to ignore the smell, coming from your new Ipoo 5.

Umm what part of I'm a girl didn't you understand? How could I drop my phone if i were even doing the restroom? Doesn't make sense. Either way I already explained the real situation, which was my phone falling from my rear pocket.

mine got wet, same thing when I slide to unlock the screen flickered from white/black... then just black, cannot turn it off, flash light was always on, put it in the rice box for a week then the screen just turned on, as Ive says it "magical" . Now my flash light is always turned on, so far no other hidden damages.

i only have the 1yr warranty, so since the liquid indicators turned red, they voided my warranty

Put it in rice at night when you sleep. I've heard it can help more sometimes.

And I was cautious enough to buy the extended AppleCare

:( Didn't work

Hi everyone,

Well tonight after 5 days I believe, it didn't turn on. Not even vibrate. Not even an apple. Or a black or white screen.

So I'm guessing it got fried?


The thing is I had it jailbroken. Yup a problem.

Would any of you by any chance happen to know if they could still turn it on and see its been jailbroken?

Probably yes, they won't like it if they will turn it on somehow, keep us posted if you get a replacement. And be careful next time!

Use the Apple Care. Don't listen to anyone here. There's a good chance your phone will fail again in some capacity in the future due to corrosion from the impurities in the water over time. It might be when you need the phone the most. Don't take the risk.

Do you know if they'll know it was jailbroken since it wont turn on and I can't restore it?


Or do they even take the time to fix it and see if it is?

I don't think they would check for this or care. Besides, I don't see what other choice you have than to ask for a replacement.
