About a week ago my wife dropped her iPhone 4s into a bowl of water that our daughter was using for water paints. The water was blue from rinsing the brushed off. I was at work when this happened, but she googled what to do and put the phone in a baggy of rice. (She didn't turn the phone off though, because she was afraid to push any buttons). When I got home I looked at the phone, and it had water in the dock connector still. I turned off the phone, and blew/shook out the water as best I could. Put it back in the bag of rice, and set it on top of the warm cable box overnight. Next morning I went to look at it, and the phone was on. Must have somehow turned itself on overnight. I though "oh well, it's been on this long, let's see if it works." To my surprise, everything seems to work just fine. It's been a week now, and she's had nor problems, other than a grain of rice stuck in the headphone jack that I needed to pulverize with a needle to get out. I'm kind of surprised she hasn't had any issues so far. Just thought I'd share to give hope to all those that post their water horror stories. We have AppleCare +, so we can get a replacement for $50 if it does start acting up.
