    Oooppsss - while drunk in London I dropped my iphone in a deep puddle of muddy water....it was fully submerged for about 5-10 seconds while I had to fish it out

    Earpiece speaker stopped working during the night but thank god, the next day the whole phone worked without fail - as if it never went through the truma!

    Yay! Hope it stays this way

    It's one of the major shopping streets in London and runs from Marble Arch through to Tottenham Court Road ;-)

    I've heard people in the past say that a good remedy for dropping your phone in water is to put it in a bag of brown rice for a week or so. Inconvenient, but you might want to consider it just in case. The rice is meant to draw the water out.

    Strangely enough - the water sensor as not been set off... the phone was definitely completely in water for about 5-10 seconds....

    mmm stealth phone!
