Hey guys, Last night I dropped my phone in a clean toilet. It didn't have a cover. I immediately picked it up and wiped it off. It was still working so I thought noting of it. Fast forward almost 24 hours later, and the phone screen becomes two shades of dark blue. It changed the second I tried to check some texts after letting it sit on my night stand while I took a nap. This was...2 hours ago I think. I tried turning it off and plugging it into the charger with no luck. It was frozen. I immediately scoured the internet to try to figure out next best steps. I put the phone in a large bowl of rice. I took it out about 10 minutes later to try to turn it off, the screen lit up with the Apple logo but stalled. I also tried to see if that changes if I connect it to the charger. I left it again for 30 minutes and tried to turn it off. It booted up back to the lock screen and even let me get in. I tried turning it off and it "died", not letting me slide the lock screen to turn it off. It's now sitting in the bowl of rice. I wanted to know the best next steps. I don't care as much about the phone as much as I do about the photos and text messages that are on it. Ironically I got a text from a number I hadn't yet stored and it began with "I just put two and two together and realized..."/ I didn't even get to read the last part of it before it when to the dark blue screen. What should I do to maximize it's survival? I was going to wait 48 hours before trying to look at it again... - Should I take it to a repair shop? - It's not covered by a warranty (bought it second hand) but I'm willing to pay a LOT to have fixed by Apple. Will they be willing to help? - Anything else I can do at home to help? Should I put the rice on top of a gentle heat source? - Will other products like DampRid or anything else help?
