    How wet is wet ?
    A few drops of water ? Fell into the toilet ?
    The only thing that can REALLY be done is letting it dry completely and hope it will work after. If not I hope you had insurance on it because its done for.

If there is water damage, your warranty/insurance does not cover it. You cannot lie about it because the Iphone has a water damage indicator on it that will let them know.

You will have to pay to have it repaired. I am sorry about your mishap, and thank you for choosing Fixya!

If you bring it to the apple store, they will basically replace the phone for you for a charge of up to $200.
That is there basic response to iphones that has gotten wet...
If they determine it is another defect not associated with getting wet, and the item is still under warranty, they may replace it at no charge.
NOTE:  Others online have tried the following:  turn off phone and leave it off. place it in a ziplock bag and fill the bag with rice. Seal it and  leave it in there for at least 48 hours)... the rice will absorb all existing moisture out. After the 48 hours, try to power on the phone and check to see if everything works.   Note:  Be sure to blow out any rice that my get into the crevices... (see video:  http://www.instructables.com/id/Fix_Your_Ipod_or_You_Iphone_if_you_get_it_wet/
Hope this helps.  Let me know how it all turns out.

The bottom part of my iPhone touchpad is not responding to touch


The touch on the screen works as a seperate component from the screen itself. Either the lower portion is damaged and has to be replaced, or it is wet and can't sence touch as a result. The one may get better in time if the components don't corrode, the other is probably not resolvable...

Iphone touch screen is not working. Restored the phone from backup succesfully, but screen still doesn't work. Phone receives calls, etc., but can't unlock or answer calls because screen doesn't respond to...


Even though the iPhonemag-glass_10x10.gif is a device that is extremely convenient to have, it still can cause frustrations. Specifically, there may be times when the touch screen does not work properly.

There are various problems the iPhone touch screen could encounter. Although there are times when the screen does not work altogether, there are other situations when certain portions of the screen work and others don't. Of course, it is possible that the entire screen works, but is simply slow. Regardless of the exact problem, there are ways to troubleshoot the iPhone to diagnose the real problem.
  1. tep 1 Remove the wiping cloth that came in the small black envelope along with the iPhone. Wipe the smudges or dust off the screen with this cloth. It is best to wipe in a circular motion.
  2. Step 2 Do not put lotion on your hands and do not touch the screen if your hands are wet. Any kind of moisture can affect the way the touchscreen operates. Moisture sometimes slows the response time from the screen to the operating systemmag-glass_10x10.gif.
  3. Step 3 Check for a protective sheet on the screen. If there is some kind of a film or sheet on the touchscreen, the screen is likely not able to react to all of the sensitivities of the touch of a finger as it normally would.
  4. Step 4 If there is an application open and the touchscreen seems to not be working, simply close the application and retry it. A frozen application can usually be closed by pressing and holding on the circular button located just below the touchscreen.
  5. Step 5 Press and hold the home button as well as the reset button on the top of the phone to turn the iPhone off. A red slider will appear. Slide it to the right to turn the phone off. Press again on the "Reset" button on the top to turn the phone back on.
  6. Step 6 Completely reset the iPhone by holding the "Home" button and the "Reset" button for a full 10 seconds until the phone resets and the Apple logo appears on the phone.
    • If you are using the iPhone in cold weather and wearing gloves, the iPhone will not react to the gloves as it will to the touch of a finger.
    • If the touchscreen is dirty, do not run the iPhone under water. Doing this will likely ruin the phone, but even if it doesn't, it will possibly make the phone run slower.

I have an iphone 3gs it works but the screen is blank except when i turn it off. when i turn it on the screen comes on then blanks out.the touch screen still works.


Did the phone get wet? It may be either your lcd screen or your logic board. I doubt it's a connection issue because it initally works fine. If Apple doesn't replace it for you, you can find the lcd or logic board at iPhone 3GS Repair and there is a guide that shows you how to put in the part at iPhone Repair Guide.
