    So today I was one of those idiots that drops her iPhone into the toilet. (LUCKILY into clean water) Luckily I had it in a hard case with a screen cover on it, so for the moment most everything seems to be working fine... I can make calls, play music, text people, etc. However, it thinks my headphones are plugged in. I can't hear anything, play music out loud, record my voice, etc. I am in a slight panic, but hoping you guys can help me out with any advice, ideas, suggestions, etc that you can throw my way.

    Thank you!!!

    Kind of late for advice. You needed to not turn it on and put it in sealed bag of rice for several days. You could still do that, but I don't have much hope.

    Stop using the blow dryer. Too much heat is also not good.

    Anyway, you can always pay the $199 for an out of warranty replacement (or whatever the cost is if you are not in the U.S.).
