HELP - I just dropped my phone in a puddle!
« on: December 16, 2017, 07:53:16 AM »
My trusty Iphone 4s is currently sitting in a bowl of rice after a trip into a puddle.

Is there anything else I should or shouldn't do to rescue it?

Thanks!

Don't try to power it up until you're sure it's dry.

Make sure not to power it up, turn it every 4 or so hours in case water pooled in it somewhere, and cross your fingers. Also, regrettably, your warranty probably won't help - there are moisture-reactant strips inside the phone that are flying a "dropped in water" flag now.
