what the heck? was it fully submerged..? that really seems impossible even after some intense drying... I'd be surprised if an iphone could last an instant under water let alone 6 months..

Seems like water also did damage to the language pack xD
See, the phone showing lines in two languages, on the same screens...

That's sharp of you to catch! Yeah, i think the screen is a fake. 2 languages in a screen is just not possible.

Are you aware that before an iPhone is activated, the language of "Drag to Unlock" rotates languages while the message above stays the same?

Bizarrely ignorant. Perhaps if some of you even bothered trying an iPhone before casting judgement.. No no, that's too much to ask.

I have dropped a few devices in water (Windows Mobile phone and an Android phone), thankfully, both where off, and both survived the trip.

My WinMo phone the screen was shot, but my Android phone survived just fine... keep in mind, I took the back off mine and gave the easily removable parts a Simple Green bath then let the parts dry in a big sealed bag of rice for 2 weeks before I reassembled them and went about my business...

Not really all that suprising!

Why not let an iPhone face the test like those people did on Lumia 900... heat it, freeze it, submerge it and let us see how much calibre it shows !! I don't buy such 'ohmygod it works' stories like this.

Perhaps every iPhone-owner can drop their iPhone on the bottom of that lake. :)

it's not even an iphone thing (i've got my gripes with apple but this aint one). any piece of technology like a smartphone shouldn't be able to survive that long submerged under water -.- (unless it's waterproof obviously... even then)

Actually the water of the lake was full of "Phone Arena" Essence that let the iPhone survive as we have seen in days comparisons.
