    I went into the pool with my iphone4 in my pocket ... for under a minute. I tried to turn it on a few times ... ( didn't know that was a bad thing to do). Got most of the water out after that and now it's sitting in a bag of uncooked rice.

    Question is ... will everything be ok after I tried to turn it on that many times? Even if the phone works, the speaker will not work right?

    Thanks guys

    I doubt it will ever work right again.
    Bring it to Apple and pay the $200 for a replacement.

    Yes, bring it to an Apple store and they'll take care of you.
    Be honest cause the first thing they check is the moist sensors.

    If it doesnt turn on they wont be able to tell it was JB.
    But know that the replacement iphone 4 you will get will not be able to be unlocked with ultrasnow.
    You will be able to use a Gevey turbo sim to unlock though.

    Well you wouldn't want to leave your T-Mobile SIM in there when you swap the phone. Just tell them that you took the AT&T SIM out and put it in another phone which you left at your house. (if they ask where the SIM is).

    The guys there will check the phone's serial number. Anyone who has done this before can tell me if the serial number are bound to your AT&T account? Will they be able to tell if you have an AT&T account or not?

    No, they dont care if you have an AT&T account or not.
    Just bring it in and if they ask you for a sim tell them you left it inside your other phone or something.
    The reason they check the serial number is for warranty purposes and because they need to enter it for every replacement in their system. They dont check or ask for any of your AT&T account info.
