I dropped my brand new iPhone 5 in water. What do I do?

Member

I dropped my brand new iPhone 5 in water last week. The touch screen wouldn't work so I couldn't turn it off. I dried it well with paper and a hour later I figured out how to turn it off by holding the power key and menu key at the same time. It has been seating on a bowl of rice since. I tried to turn it back on a couple days later but it didn't work. I switched my account to my old cell phone so I can have a phone line. But my old cell phone is not a smartphone so I can't use the data plan that I am paying for.

What should I do?

Well.. you still have AppleCare on it. They'll replace it for you as long as you didn't void the warranty.
