How long to leave iPhone soaking in rice?

Postby ellery » Fri Jan 14, 2011 7:45 am

Yesterday evening my iPhone fell into a bowl of water. It was saved in approximately 4-5 seconds, and had an Otterbox case on it (thank goodness). I dried it off, then took the case off and dried it off, and then immediately soaked it in a bowl of rice. It was never turned on...it was off the whole time. It's been soaking for at least 25 hours...
The headphone jack has been looked at and as far as we can tell it doesn't have water damage. Should I leave it in another day, so that it has been soaking for 48 hours? Or should I just look at it tomorrow morning/afternoon? It was submerged, but as far as I can tell it wasn't COMPLETELY soaked. I was freaking out too much to notice ;)
Please let me know!
Thank you!
(Merry Christmas!)

If it was in an otterbox, it probably never got wet. Those things, while not waterproof, are certainly water resistant. I would say take it out tomorrow afternoon, just to be on the safe side, but it is most likely dry by now.
