about 2 weeks ago I gathered my bedding to put in the washer and forgot my phone was on my bed..i remembered during the rinse cycle and now my phone is showing the apple and a red screen and the phone feels very cold when I touch it...can it be saved? I tried the rice thing already and I blow dried it a lil..I did buy another phone since a Samsung but I want my iPhone back...I don't like Samsung and its prepaid so too late to exchange it...

I don't miss my iPhone. My Samsung has a cheaper service.

Did you put the phone in a tightly closed bag with Rice? It needs to be tightly closed like in a zip lock bag. I washed an iPad nano and it came back after a few days in the bag.

You could also try a desiccant. They sell this at home Depot. It's like rice but better.

I sold my iPhone on ebay for like 150 bucks. Maybe buy one cheaper than way?
