Iphone swimming Hello, I dropped my 3G Iphone in water a week ago. I was not able to turn the phone off because the touch screen doesn't work. My phone still alarms and and the screens are working but I cannot operate the phone because the touch screen is unresponsive. What I want to know is if the touchscreen is not working what parts would I need to order for repair?  Thanks,

You may still have water in tight places due to water surface tension (such as touch screen). Open all the access doors, take out the SIM card, and anything else that is removable and put all parts in a ziplock bag. Get some dessicant bags (from old shoe boxes), cardboard pieces, saltine crackers and put them in the ziplock bag also and put on top of your microwave oven or in the window where it gets direct sunlight. Leave it there until moisture gets on the bag then disappears (3-5days) These items will help draw out all the moisture better than air drying. I have done this many times on cell phones, gameboys, etc. and it works everytime.

If the problem is consistent in other windows besides strictly the keyboard it is possible that the capacitive touch panel is defective or has been damaged.

WHEN I TRY TO SEE RECENT CALL HISTORY THE I PHONE 3 GS REVERTS TO THE HOME SCREEN. IS THERE ANY WAY OF RESOLVING THIS?


hello,ensure you are not clicking on the key wrongly,i would advice you put the phone off and on back to see if the problem stops.if it doesn't i would also advice you ensure you close any application you are not making use of.it could also be as a result of accumulated opening of applications. if that does not stop the problem,i would suggest you get the phone flashed by a mobile phone authorized repair engineer around you.
wish you good luck,
take care.

My iphone will not read the sim card. The card works fine in another phone. My phone was submerged in a tub of greasy water and i am tryinng to restore it now.


Ben, Could you try dry it first? Do not turn on.
As you said that your card is not read by iphone, i can see that you already turn it on after it submerged in greasy water. I hope it doesn't short circuit yet. Use hair dryer, dry your iphone through the usb connection hole, leave for awhile, make sure it dry, then try again. Hope this will help. For future, if phone dropped in water, first thing to do is take off battery, or turn of completely then dry it before checking it still work or not.Thanks for reading.

Iphone dropped in a pool help. Put it in rice for a week and it will turn on but will not allow me to slide it to unlock


Ok. What let you slide content and do so many things through touching the screen of your phone is the "capacitive touch screen" embeded on the phone itself has shorted out when it felt in the water (bear in mind that it functions through electricity that continously runs through it. You should contact somebod who knows how to replace it. Good luck

Iphone 3G screen not working after dropping. Not


It sounds like you have some internal screen damage, your LCD may be damaged or your digitizer. A professional will need to take your phone apart and determine the cause.

Iphone touch screen


Hello, Have you tried resetting the iPhone? Hold the main round button on the front in while also holding the small button on top of the unit in. Hold these both in until you see the screen change or it shuts down completely.
