    Hi! My name is Christian and I really need some help! Ok first off, I dropped my 3GS in a saltwater pool and the got it out immediately after and washed it off with some regular water. I stuck it in a bag of rice for about 5 days. I turned it on and the battery was dying very quickly and it wouldn't keep charge. Also it was extremely hot to the touch. I replaced the battery hoping that would fix it but no luck. There is some corrosion on the logic board. Do I need to clean it with alcohol? Do I need to replace the dock connector? Or am I just SOL? Any advice is welcome! Thanks :)

    Most likely you will need to replace the whole phone.
    Apple charges $149 for a water damaged 3GS.
