    So i dropped my iphone in the toilet today, never dropped a phone in a toilet before but I happen to drop my iphone in... lol i know this has to be funny so laugh it up, but seriously it just keeps powering on and off. im wondering if i just let it dry for a long time that it might work again, anyone had water damage with their phone before???

    Read some other threads about water damage. There are some very helpful posts there. For now, stick it in a container of rice immediately! The rice will absorb most of the "liquid". You should mix the rice around so the wet rice doesn't hang out around the iPhone, not soaking up anymore "liquid". And sorry, but I have to ask in order to provide correct advice but... well... was the deed done when your iPhone went for a swim?
