Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone
Ok, i know i pretty much deserve this but my itouch has water damage because i was using it in the shower. you see, i put it in a zip lock bag and i guess the water some how got through! it never happened before which is why i kept doing it.
when i pulled it out, music was still coming out of it and there was water on it. i immediately whipped it off and i tried putting some tissue into the holes. i also put it near my heater (about a foot away) to dry. i read that online.
i have one of those 40$ warranties for 2 years. i purchased mine from Bst Buy less than a month ago.
if you have any tips on how to fix it, if the store would take it, or what i can do about this please let me know. =)
Try this :
This works on most mini electronic devices like cellular phones and degital cameras etc .
it sounds crazy .
Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY
Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points (shiny, goldish) on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.
Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.
It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).
beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.
This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick.
