    I was running to my car in rain with my iphone in my hand and once I got there, and tried to make a call, I could barely hear anything from the ear "speaker". Everything else works. The liquid sensors are still white.

    Any tips? I'm gonna have to replace the phone if it doesn't start working, it's out of warranty.

    Put it in a bag of rice, let it sit for a day or so. Might dry up and start working.

    Yes, do the rice trick and it could work.

    Just one question, why it was in your hand instead of your pocket?

    I was talking when the rain started, ended the call, ran 50 meters and called back, and could barely hear the other person talking.

    EDIT: got it fixed, for future reference if anyone has the same proble go here
