Color me impressed. My son has been using my first gen iPhone as a glorified iPod Touch ever since I got my 3GS at launch. A couple of nights ago, I was pulling the clothes out of the washing machine when I found it laying in the bottom of the machine. I quickly put it in a bag of rice and left it. Tonight, I plug it in and find this: I powered it on and it went straight to the lock screen. I was amazed. Don't know if it was the rice trick or not, but something worked. The only down side is that the screen doesn't recognize my touch anymore. I've put it back in the rice hoping that there may be a bit more liquid in there to dry out. I don't know if you can see in the pic, but there is definitely some water damage under the screen. Does anyone have any suggestions to get the touch screen working again? Would a restore help?
