Can Rice Save Your iPhone?
I "visited the patient" on Sunday, wondering if I should attempt to resurrect it from the dead. As my friend, Ed so eloquently put it: "Water coming out of the headphone jack is equivalent to vomitting blood". Thanks, dude, I feel so much better already!
A quick check of the dessicant bag showed that there had been quite a bit of moisture absorbed by the silica gel, I hope it was mostly from the ambient air.
Hmm...better wait out a week to prevent any more damage to the circuitry by putting a current through still moist components. So I buried my poor iPhone back under the rice, stuck more dessicants into the pot and decided to wait till tonight (day 7) to attempt an iPhone Resurrection. Failing which, I have a few more weeks till I'm eligible for my first year upgrade to the iPhone 3GS. Will keep you posted on the results of the 1 week "Rice" C U test.
