    Default Iphone 3g 16 gigs fell in swimming pool (PICS)

    Long story but I was pushed in the swimming pool while I had my iphone in my jeans pocket. I let it dry for 24h then put it in a bag with rice for another 24h, now it's 48h later and I turned it on, it looks like there is small mini-clouds under the screen, or that the pixels are damaged, anyways to fix this ???

    Cliffs :
    - Iphone went into swimming pool
    - Small clouds/condensation UNDER the screen.
    - The phone and screen seem to be working FINE for the moment.

    Leave it in the rice bag for a little longer. If the issue persists, you may need to disassemble the phone and dry it out internally.

    The LCD needs replacing. Pretty cheap and easy to do.

    Default what about me?

    I will make this short and concise, so I don't waste your time.

    1. Wife washes the Iphone.

    2. I take it apart, dry it.

    3. It comes on after three days, but screen is pale, and battery doesn't hold charge, and vibrator is dead.

    4. I replace the battery and it holds better charge but not as long as before.

    5. It works fine, as far as calling and everything.

    6. Screen looks like this:



    7. On a PC/Mac it looks like this



    8. I replace the LCD screen, but still no change.


    Where is the problem? Is it the logic board?


    Please help, it's driving me crazy.
