My wife dropped her iPhone into the loo  :doh:. Fished out promptly, shaken dry then handed to me whereupon I extracted more fluid by various means, then placed it on a piece of wood inside a container half full of those condensation crystals for two days.

It has worked fine ever since.

Hope the same result comes your way.

Do you have soft water in your area. You would not have much chance of doing this in a hard water area as crystals form as it dries out.

Yes, we are in a hard water area (lots of scale regularly cleaned out of the kettle, and two years ago the hot water tank was replaced and was found to be seriously scaled up) and therefore, judging by what you say, happy to still have a perfectly functioning iPhone.

Maybe my water extraction methods prior to placing it in the container helped: a few swift long arm movements (like a centrifuge in effect), and some judicious suction at various points around the case (best not ask how  :o )

But probably just very lucky.

I'm going to invent a wall-mounted telephone holder for use in toilets.

Rich at last !

Best regards,


Joe

Neat plan, Joe!

I also had a brilliant idea which with it's elegant looks and 'no drop' features I thought would bring me fortune if not also fame. Then I found out somebody had beaten me to it!

Ah well; back to the gin and tonics!

I am currently building an O gauge brake can from a Slaters kit...
Instructions are mostly text with a few misleading drawings. Virtually everything I have stuck on I've had to unstick again. I don't think anything has fitted without filing if general hacking.

Great design. The toilet roll holder could be integrated below the phone !
