I think I killed my iPhone.

Oh no.

What did you do?

Left it out in the rain overnight. I'm trying to charge it now, to see if it will resuscitate.

(I was using it as a cooking timer on the grill last night).

Give it a day or two to dry out. I killed a cell phone that way in 2004 and it eventually recovered.

Well, it hasn't exploded yet.

The "charging" screen is showing - and sometimes showing of it's own accord, with other random dialogs popping up.

I'll power it off and give it some more time to dry out. If it doesn't behave after that ... they say the 3G iPhone is coming soon.

Yeah. A bit of time without wet will be good for it.

I was going to say, "don't turn it on until it dries out!" but it might be too late for that.

Here's hoping it's OK.

That's not possible since "it doesn't ever rain" in Washington...according to a caller (from Marysville) I talked to at the T-Mobile call center. She was pissed because water damage is not covered by the warranty.

Can you pull the battery out of those things? If so, you may want to do that and make sure the connections are bone dry before you continue charging.

Good luck!
