iPhone 5
Hi! I fell into a pond yesterday at around 10am with my iphone 5 in my shorts. I was in the water for about 3 seconds, got back up and turned off my phone. I wiped dry and let it air dry for about an hour. When i got home at night, 1030pm, i checked the forums, and found the keep it in rice fix. So, i took out the sim and placed it in a ziplock bag with rice. Then I found a link in apple support on how to check the wet indicator of my iphone. Checked it, and it was still white. How long do I have to keep it in rice? I have a 730am alarm set for every morning, but it did not go off this morning. Was that normal? I have my fingers and toes crossed while i am typing this. Hope everything will be fine.

Hi! Just an update to all. Like I said before, every iphone has a liquid contact indicator which changes color when it gets wet. Glad to tell you that mine did not change color. I turned it on yesterday and it was like before (fingers still crossed). Anyway, here is what I did if ever anyone has any unfortunate accidents:
1. Turn off the phone immediately.
2. Wipe it dry, especially the speakers, earphone jack, and lightning connector.
3. Take out the sim card and check the indicator. For me, I did it 10hrs later because I still have not gotten home yet.
4. Vacuum every crevice you can find.
5. Put in in uncooked rice to draw out the water. It depends on how wet your phone got. For me, I did it for less than 24 hours. Like I said, my indicator did not change color.
6. Keep your fingers crossed until you turn the phone on again. Hope this helps!

Hi! Does keeping it in rice work? Will 3 days be sufficient? How will I know if it is dry? Like I said, the wet indicator in the sim card slot did not change color.

I would not attempt to turn on the iphone for several days. It should have plenty of time to dry or you just about ensure permanent damage.
