I always wondered what the heck was wrong with people that would post that they accidentally dropped their phone in the toilet or a bucket of water or something. Well now I can add my name to that unenviable list. Dropped my 2 week old iPhone in the toilet today. Accidentally knocked it off the bathroom counter and after a few acrobatic bounces and failed catches, it managed to land right in the drink. It was in the water for all of about 2 seconds before I grabbed it (no, there was nothing in the toilet thank goodness) and started furiously trying to dry it out. Quickly dried off all the exterior water. Grabbed a can of compressed air and started to try and blow the remaining water out of the various openings in the unit. Probably not a smart idea as I could very well have blown water or dust particles under the LCD but thankfully that did not occur. Considering how short a time it was in the water and how quickly (or so I thought) I tried to dry out the internals, I still saw the erratic behavior that other posts describe. I never had the problem of the unit not turning on at all. But the screen did seem to flicker a bit for a while, it wouldn't size properly (i.e. the screen would not take up the full LCD) and applications would crash that had never crashed previously - SMS, Phone, etc. Probably the strangest thing I noticed is that it started to register as if it was plugged into a non-approved iPhone accessory because I kept getting that message. Unfortunately, because it believed it was plugged in, when I tried to shut the unit down and leave it alone to dry for a few hours, it would turn right back on. I was kind of surprised that such a short exposure to water would reek this much havoc. But I guess it is a pretty sophisticated device and it's generally not good to give it a swim. This happened around 11am this morning. By around 6pm this evening and after several more air can blasts, pretty much everything is back to normal. I can actually shut the unit down completely and it stays off. All applications seem to be acting normal. Unfortunately it still thinks it is plugged into an non iphone accessory because I keep getting the message. As a result, the speaker will not play when either receiving a call or trying to play music. I know the speaker works fine because I can force it to work when listening to a voicemail. And from time to time I can get music to play through it from the iPod function but only for a short period of time before it thinks its plugged in to an accessory again and the error message pops up. In reading through the various "water" posts, I see that several people suggested putting the phone in a sealed plastic bag with some uncooked rice to try and absorb the moisture. As everything is back to normal and even the "unauthorized accessory warning" seems to not be as prevalent as before, I have placed my phone in a bag with rice to hopefully absorb the remaining moisture and get it back to normal. Just thought I would share my harrowing experience and hopefully be able to post a follow up tomorrow morning that everything is back to normal. Sure would be nice to use my speaker again! Sorry to all the goofs that I thought were crazy for dropping a phone in water. I am now one of those lucky souls.
