    yeah, rice, put a lot in a big bowl, put your phone in, OFF, then put more over the top of it, Rice sucks out the water, you would be surprised how much water it will suck out, if there is any

    if it was dropped in water enen if you restored it they have a strip in the headphone jack that changes color when it comes in contanct with water so either way your warrenty is voided

    Any way my Grandma dropped her Blackberry in the toliet and the rice didn't work
    she stuck it up to a shop-vac and it worked again (but you can open the back of the blackberry up) so i don't think it will work with the iPhone since you can open up the back without tools
