My Phone and a Bowl Full of Barley
I dried it off well (and then washed my hands well). I jumped in my car and it connected to my bluetooth just fine and I had a conversation with Dan--through the Bluetooth. But then I saw the battery was dying so I plugged in the charger. And it immediately went black.
Did I fry it? The display worked, but I fried the speakers. Once I took Dan off of Bluetooth in the car and used the phone independently, Dan could hear me, but I couldn't hear him. We tried playing music and I couldn't hear that either.
When I got home I put it in a bowl of barley because I didn't have any white rice and I was using the rest of the brown rice for dinner that night. P.S.... Barley has a lot of husk dust that I'm sure isn't good for phones.
An hour later it still didn't work and wouldn't charge either so I hurried and backed it up to the Cloud.
Marty thought it would still be under warranty, but I assured him warranties were for phones that stopped working for no good reason. Not for phones that went in the toilet. Chris said I could lie. I said I don't lie. Nick laughed that I'd dropped the phone in the toilet.
Dan called Verizon to see if it could be repaired, but they confirmed that iPhones that have been submerged and stopped working are worthless. Apple won't touch anything that's been wet.
So he took it out to the garage and got out his handy compressor and blew air into all the small little holes. Some water came out.
And guess what? It started working again!!!
It's charging right now and it plays music and the Audio works again!!! Yipeee!
Dan's totally my Juke Box Hero!
