Dropped My iPhone in the Toilet....

I haven't heard from my friend since yesterday afternoon which is very unlike him so in an effort to stay connected, I took my phone with me to the restroom.  As I went to exit the stall, I jumbled my phone and the darn thing flipped right into the toilet. Enough said! It's working right now but we'll see for how long. I just ran over to Walgreens to get some rice. I heard and read online that the best thing to do it to put your phone in a bowl of rice overnight to get the moisture out. I don't have a bowl at work so it's sitting in a tall cup on my desk covered with rice right now. I hope and pray I won't have to get another phone. My BFF and I were just joking about this a couple of weeks ago. I was going to ride it out with my 4S until it died and well...I still will. Please live! Please live!

My brother in law is notorious for destroying phones. One time it dropped out of his pocket as he was getting into his car. He then drove over it. Another time while at a water park he was so excited to go swimming he ran into the wave pool without taking his phone out of his pocket. Another phone bit the dust. He has also lost his phone on more than one occasion. The rice trick does work if you do it soon enough and the phone wasn't submerged in water too long. Good luck!

I sure hope the rice works! I can't believe I dropped the darn thing in the toilet! OMG!

You did the right thing with the rice method, so I hope it’s still working right after that fall. Did you get a waterproof case afterwards? Just in case, you know, your phone decides to take a swim in the toilet or bathtub. Just kidding! Cheers! – Mary, TelcoWorld

Hi Mary! LOL Thanks for reading. The only casualty of the phone plunge is that I lost my camera flash. I'm holding out for the iPhone 6 and then I'm definitely getting a waterproof case. =)
