Tip & How-To about Cell Phones

IPhone and water

Try to keep your Iphone away, from any kind of water. Apple places a little white water sensor, down by the socket. if any kind of moisture hits the sensor, and it turns color..your warranty will be void. Lets say you go to the gym, and are next to a steam room. your Iphone can be affected.

how can i fix my iphone water damege?


First, do not turn on the device for any reason. Second, place the iPhone in a bowl of white rice for several days. The rice should dry out the moisture.


After a few days see if the device will turn on. Hope that helps!

my 2g ipod touch is bricked on the apple screen and i dont know what to do


Your ipod can go into paper weight or brick mode after dropping it or exposing it to moisture ie. water. Look down the headphone jack with a flash light and see if the little rectangular water sensor is white or pink. White means that your good and pink means the water sensor has been triggered and the unit has been exposed to excessive moisture. Here's the kicker- Apple's 1 year warranty does not cover water damage so your fu.kd. But if your still within your year warranty or you got an extended warranty, then just take the thing back to the Apple store and exchange it out if the water sensor is not pink.

I dropped my iPhone in water. What should I do?


useually unrepairable but take the back off then remove battery and sim then use a hair dryer to try and dry out the moisture sometimes it works depends on how much water damage is in the main board

my iPhone is dead...need a replacement


First thing to do is check the water indicator.

Look directly down the headphone socket on the iphone, using a light you should see a white marker (or red if it's water damaged)

If it's still white take it back to apple and get a new one (if it's still under warranty.)

If it's red and you need a new one, the options are:

Ebay or get a pay as you go iPhone with no contract and unlock it (expensive but no contract)
