    Accidentally left my i-Phone outside in the rain overnight. After drying it out, the display is very dark. Changing the settings did no good. Turned off auto brightness and adjusted brightness all the way up. Nothing. Any ideas?

    Left outside, dropped in a bucket. Wow. Guess Iam lucky, I also have a belt clip so its unlikely going to (a) leave my side and (b) fall into a bucket of water....knock on wood.

    I have a solution to the rain problem... move to Britain - the weather will never get good enough for you to want to GO outside for any length of time, so you won't end up leaving your iPhone out there

    I had the same problem. It snowed one evening and I went outside, forgetting it was in my pocket, and when I came back inside my jeans were wet, and my iPhone had stopped working. I tried many solutions such as keep restarting it and leaving it in the airing cupboard overnight and no such luck. My phone works, but I cant put it on stand by .. any ideas ??
