    I got my iphone wet at school and it was hours before i could put it in a rice bag. i dried it with my jacket. The headphone thing is not red its white. It could not turn off I pressed the home and top button but i think it ran out of battery. The flash was on the whole time. Well it feel into a toilet then i grabbed it in two seconds. its an iphone 4. right now it is sitting in a rice bag. Please please give me advice.

    Leave it in the rice bag for a few days and come back to it. Hopefully it will work again.

    The idea is to let the rice draw out all the moisture but if the phone was totally submerged it is best to leave it in there much longer than a few days. Also put it in the sunlight for an hour or so a day ( still in the bag of rice. You also might want to check the rice for dampness around the phone and change it out if you feel any moisture. It is critical to have the moisture out of the phone, otherwise when you power it on it may short something. Good luck hope I helped a bit.

    Dont attempt to power on or you'll totally destroy your phone. Lay it in rice for some more days and pray to God......
