I dropped my phone in the lake and unbelievably we found it within a couple

Of
of minutes, and it worked for a few hours after. However later that night it stopped and wouldn't charge. The next morning the screen was completely red. However yes after putting it in a container of rice over night it worked again. So for those saying the rice trick doesn't work it surely got mine working again within 9 hours. The only thing that won't work is my home button. I've dropped another iPhone out of my jacket pocket into the toilet before(I know yuck) I was going to flush for my 3 year old and it fell out. I put it in rice and voila it worked perfectly fine for another year until it was time to upgrade, so rice has worked for me twice.
