mother dropped her 4s in toilet :D it was working and she never knew it must be turned off if IT WORKS after being in such place :D

I put it in rice etc.. when connecting phone works is being detected by itunes , I ordered a replacement screen already.

Hopefully it's just a screen who died...

anyone else had similar issue?

Just drain out the water first and check the red colour indicator.. If its nt showing and if its in warranty go to uR nearest apple store and get it replaced as new. I did this thing in my case.

screen works even though you can't see nothing :D I was memorizing where numbers are on pass lock lol.

and it's out of warranty so I just bought a cheap screen for 24$ hopefully by Friday-Saturday it will be good.

Anyone else had similar case?

I guess smartphones are replacing the traditional newspapers in these accidental toilet scenarios which is not costing .50 cents an issue.

Multitasking on the toilet is not good for the bowel. Consider dropping your phone in the toilet as "colonic karma."

Next time you buy a used phone on Ebay just think about how many times it was taken to the toilet and the potential germ count.

I consider the ecoli enveloping my phone as retribution for anyone who attempts to steal it.

Why can't people stop saying their iPhone was dropped into the toilet ? That's in itself embarrassing. Why not just say it got wet ? Dropped in the sink or something. Heard so many of these on this forum over the past year or so :(
