Hi, I dropped my 1st gen iPhone in the sink and immediately did the old rice bag trick and left it over night to no joy. So I jumped on the net and did a bit of research but there's no definite answer for me problem. When I took it out of the rice i tryed turning it on and just got an infinite boot loop. I plugged it in to my laptop and that went away, for now. But now it won't lock or unlock using the sleep/wake button. The only way I can turn it off is by holding the sleep/wake button and the home button or just letting it run out the battery. My phone is out of warranty and I have no phone insurance. The contract runs out in October. So is there a fix or should i just live with it till my contract expires and I can purchase the nice new shiny 3gs . (i'm on o2 btw) Cheers!
