I dropped my iPhone 3GS in water yesterday. It was not submerged for more than a few seconds, and it remained on after I dropped it. I left it in a bowl of uncooked rice over night. The phone works, but it will not charge... Is there anything I can do aside from purchasing a new phone?

Try putting it in a bowl of (slightly pulled apart) cotton balls overnight. I tried that and it worked when I dropped my phone in the toilet.

That's what happened to my blackjack I used to have. I thought it was fine because it still worked normally but then I noticed it wasn't charging. I even bought a new charger and tried it in different outlets. Turned out there was too much water damage even though it was only in water for a second, and I had to get a new phone. Good luck
