    I attempted the rice trick for my liquid submerged phone and to check if it works, I would try to charge it. I finally gave up and went to the genius bar and said it's corroded especially at the bottom port. So, I got only a refurb iphone. Good as new.

    My question is, is it possible if I use my old dock connector with my refurb phone without worrying about corrosion? Thanks for the help!

    dock connector? that is an internal piece on the phone. if you are talking about an external doc that you set the phone into to charge or listen to music then yes you should be ok unless it got wet also but it is not going to hurt your iPhone unless it is still wet. you may have corrosion on the doc plug but its not going to infect the new iPhone unless it is still wet like I said.
