IPHONE just took a dip in the pool!

My daughter's boyfriend's  IPHONE  just had a dip in the pool!  We quickly acted and started the drying process.  I checked out the You Tube Video's for tips on correcting this ugly situation.   We were told to do the following by the You Tube "experts":

•1)      We took out the Sim card and dried it with a towel.

•2)      We took out the dryer and started drying the whole phone on a low warm heat setting.

•3)      The drying enabled us to power "off".

•4)      We placed the phone in a dish and covered it with rice.

•5)      Now we wait 48 hours.

According to You Tube this should work!

Thankfully, my daughter's boyfriend is NICE and feels confident this system will work.  Great test of a relationship!

Has anyone tried this with success?  I hope?!

I left mine on the patio and it poured rain...not something we get very often here in Arizona. I layed it on my counter and layed the blow dryer on a distance from it where it could get up through the hole where you plug it in. Far enough away not to melt anything and within I would say a couple hours it was dry and working. Amazing things! I have the first generation Iphone and have had it since 2005! Love it! Good luck I hope it gets lucky like mine did!

Apple's website says that the i-phone can do CPR on itself, if you've preinstalled the app: LifeSaver1.0

I had never head about the rice part, you will have to let me know if it works! Mine gets wet all the time when I take my daughter to the pool, so I just pop out the battery and leave it overnight to dry. No problems with it so far! ;) Just don't push any buttons while it's wet!
