Got wet, phone on, got hot, dark dark screen
I never thought I'd be one to drop their phone in the toilet (after it was flushed at least).
1. 1st gen Iphone was on and submerged for 2-3 sec. It had an Encase rubber case and a screen protector.
2. took off encase, dried off the phone, looked okay.
3. So I didn't know to shut it off and I did use it to look on the internet about wet phones. At some point, it got very hot.
4. The screen got very very dark, almost black. (this whole time took about 5 min)
5. drove home (15 min) read threads here, shut off phone, removed sim card. Used cool hair dryer. It is sitting in rice.
In my specific case, with the heat aspect and the dark screen, does that tell any of the experts here that it's not going to come back? If it's not going to come back after 5 days, I'd rather have a phone to use now.

Yeah, after sitting in rice for 5 days, I just turned it on and it's the same. very very dark screen, can barely see it. It is receiving text messages - so not sure if it "works" but since I can hardly see the screen it doesn't matter much.
btw, the sensor doesn't appear to be red... but can't say for sure.
Added: the phone seems to work - although I have to hold it up to a bright light and sort of guess at what I'm pressing. It was able to make a call out. I could not hook it up to the computer though, the computer could not see it.
So now the question is, do I get a 3g or wait until the new phone is out?
