Great news, congratulations sneak!

Worst: Dropped my iphone down the toilet.

Best: Seems to be working but packed it in a bag of rice and sealed it for the next few days.

Read a few guides about doing it, but I suppose you would be the expert. Seems to have worked a bit though, the camera lens was steamed up quite a bit from the inside to start with, that's all cleared up now.

What you've recommended will be the next step if I get any problems. Will have to wait until I get to work to use a pentalobular screwdriver.

I'm sure rice does soak up moisture to some degree but I can't see it soaking up more moisture than say, leaving the phone in a warm airing cupboard. Just seems like a modern day wives tale that gets propogated online.

In any case, rice won't remove the scale left by the water

I'm guessing it's an iPhone 4? If it is, I've made a disassembly guide here - http://www.formymobile.co.uk/iphone4disassembly.php

Niceone robii, yeah a 4S. The wool case I had it in soaked up all the moisture when I dropped it in almost instantly so I think that took most of the brunt. Will follow that guide later this week though if I get any issues.

I dropped mine in the toilet the other day, fucked the phone royally because the bowl was filled with piss and bleach. Plunged my hand right in as a reflex.
