Dried it out in rice. Works except it's confused. It thinks it's connected to an unauthorized device and I get no sound through the speaker. Earphones do work and I can make phone calls on it. I've erased it and reset it. Been to the Verizon dealer who suggested sending it in for repair. But I'm hoping someone might know of an easy fix, although I doubt there is one.

    I must confess that I have read dozens of posts suggesting the rice treatment, but I don't remember reading  a reply saying "Yayyy, it's fully functional now!". I guess it must have worked for some people, otherwise it wouldn't keep being suggested....

    Easy fix: Out of Warranty exchange for $199 in the US.

    You did ask for an easy fix, not a cheap one.

     

    You can always ask nicely at the genius bar, I have seen reports of people getting lucky and getting a one time replacement... no guarantee, but it's worth being nice and asking.
