I'll try and keep graphics to a minimum! Basically, two nights ago, I went round to a flat, had two bottles of vodka, and got very drunk. The next morning, my iPhone alarm rang as scheduled at 7:35 for my 9am lecture. I moved to turn off the alarm, however my touchscreen failed to work. Confused, I turned the lights on, and from the title you can guess what I saw. I was still a little drunk, so the panicking didn't really kick in for a couple of hours. A good point to make now would be that if I used the mute switch, I could feel the phone vibrating and I received feedback. The phone eventually died (the water damage indicator 2 days later is still NOT activated). After cleaning with a damp cloth, I took the iPhone to the Apple Store in the Manchester Arndale Centre (UK). I booked a Genius appointment and was eventually seen by a Genius. I explained my story to the Genius (who was wary of touching the poor iPhone), she checked the indicator with a light (again it was not activated, but if it was activated she didn't say anything) and took it upstairs. 10 minutes later she returned asking if I had insurance (never a good sign). I said no, and she said it was contaminated and there was nothing more they could do. As you can imagine this upset me alot, as I'm probably the most careful and reliable person with electronics around, and didn't get insurance based on my spotless record with owning electronic devices. However, the Genius failed to mention any component damage. She just said there was "stuff floating around" which I sympathized with her for. I asked if there was an out of warranty replacement available, and she said no. So, I did the walk of shame back to my room, and immediately placed it in rice, where it has been for about 24 hours, and I plan on leaving it for another 3 days at the very least. I got on the phone to Apple Technical Support this morning and I have paid £126 to have it looked at and if it can't be repaired I'll be refunded. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone has had a similar situation to me and has any advice on what to do next? I'm a student, and another iPhone would stop me eating for a very long time. Apologies for any not-so-nice images anyone got, but any help or advice would be really really appreciated.
