Dropped my iPhone in the toilet ...... seems to be ok?

Dropped my iPhone in toilet on Monday (don't ask!).
Put it in rice overnight, seems to be ok.

Am I out of the woods, do you think?

It could die in a week, it could die in a month or it could be totally fine. The actual damage water has caused is impossible to predict; even if it doesn't short the phone out straight away it can cause internal corrosion from the crap (in this case hopefully not literally) which is in water.

You're lucky it didn't die straight away and you did the right thing leaving it in rice to dry out. All you can do now is hope like hell that it doesn't break at some point in the future. Also, back up anything important on the phone in case it does randomly die.

All matt said... Back it up. Buy a piggy bank and start saving, because chances are it will die.
Enjoy it while you can ;)

Sorry, it had to go (making you look slightly like a crazy person who just laughs to themselves). We wouldn't want someone to actually believe it, would we?
