Dropped my iPhone while taking a bath (for decades I haven't dropped anything, this is the first time probably).
It turns on but some parts are whacky so I'll just leave it alone for a while.

Not sure if you've tried it, but put it powered off into a ziplock with rice. The rice will pull the moisture out of the phone. I've done that with two phones that went swimming, and both came back to life with no issues.

P.S. - Sounds like a great excuse to go buy a tablet ;-)

The first thing I did was turn the power off and throw it in rice. It malfunctioned in different areas of the phone but eventually everything came back to normal.

I was gonna get the Galaxy Note 2 when it comes out if my iPhone is dead for good but I guess not yet.

I hear the iPhones bounce really well. Maybe test that out, and re-evaluate for the Note ;-)

Lol I don't need to break it, if I really wanted I'd just buy a second phone and use one as a portable gaming device.

I hear you. It's just that sometimes, it's nice to have the excuse ;-)
