    Hey Guys,
    I've seen a lot of water-damage threads here, my one is a bit different.
    About 4 months ago I dropped my phone into a container of water, it was only about 2-3 inches deep and I pulled it out straight away, tipped it so the water could run out of the headphone jack and turned it off and left it to dry. After 5 hours or so, I turned it on and it worked flawlessly, until about 2 weeks ago. It might not even be related, but i'm getting dropped calls, if I ring someone I get sometimes 2 or 3 'call failed' messages before it tries to connect. Reception bars are all there, and i've done hard resets.
    Is this it? Is this where me and my iPhone 3GS part ways? :(

    Take it in to Apple and let them be the ones to decide.

    I would have done, had the phone not been dropped in water, I'm pretty sure they'll say it's been water damaged..

    That may be so but you never know until you ask. The worst thing that they can tell you is there is nothing they can do for you.
