/ Saving a wet i phone 4
was it fresh water , or salt water ?
Take the sim card out, bury it in a bowl full of rice and leave it somewhere warm for 2-3 days. Pray.
What do I know, she is the one with the maths and physics degree, so I guess she may be right.
Fresh water...sort of....def not salt water
Thanks for replies...
Fresh water.... sort of?
I dropped a Gameboy down the toilet once - rescued it, turned it off and left it for a couple of days. To my surprise the machine and the game both survived the dunking.
Rice, an airing cupboard and pray!
1) you have a gameboy ?
2) you use it on the loo ?

Did this to mine recently. Take the SIM try out and blow through it. This will expel a large amou t of water. I then sat mine over the output of a dehumidifier for a day. The only thing to suffer in the end was the focusing on the camera.
Would couscous work?
Good luck !
Don't know about an iPhone but we saved my daughter's Samsung Galaxy after she dropped it in the sink.
I removed the battery and sim, wrapped the phone in tissue and put it in a sandwich bag full of rice in the airing cupboard for 2 days. Phone recovered and still works fine 6 months later. Good luck.
Only problem with iOS devices is the fixed battery. Removing the battery very quickly is key - as once the water starts conducting electricity around the place, things rapidly get irretrievably zapped.
That said, my iPod Classic got soaked, and by drying it out carefully (by but not on the radiator, then to finish completely charging it sat on top of the charger, to provide some warmth from within) it still works albeit with slightly reduced battery life and some odd noises on occasions.
 It isn't clever to heat lithium batteries up too much if you don't like your house being on fire.
My iphone got soaked at sea... lots of big waves, forgot phone in pocket...
Got back alongside, and voice control was working itself, music playing whenever it felt like it, screen flashing and ringing people randomly... I put it under my bathroom radiator... 24 hours later phone works perfectly again.
It took 5 days but the rice worked!! Phone working fine now...
apologies in advance if anyone is offended by ethnic banter...
