Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone

1 Answer

I was riding my motorcycle yesterday and it began to rain. I tried to protect my iPhone 3GS as best I could but it still got a little wet. I tried it out and took the SIM card out and this morning the phone seems to be working great except for the locking button on the top does not work. There is also some condensation on the inside of the camera 'window'. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated, Jesse Penney

Where so I get 2 new fenders for the Savoy LE 26RKS?

If you are a "fair weather" cyclist, you don't need fenders, but if you are a serious cyclist, and don't live in a desert climate, you really should have at least one bicycle with fenders.

Fenders make a tremendous difference when you are riding roads that are wet from drizzle, recent rain, or snowmelt.
In a hard rain, you may become wet with clean rain from above, but fenders will protect your body and bicycle from the mud and sand kicked up from dirty puddles and rivulets.

The British use the word "mudguards". In the early days of the bicycle when horses were common, that word only began to describe the advantage of fenders!

Rainproof clothing completes the picture of the well-equipped wet-weather cyclist. A rain cape -- and if you need to keep your hair dry, a helmet cover -- allow free ventilation and maximum comfort. A jacket of Gore-Tex™ or other breathable fabric also can do the job, though it can get sweaty and hot in a warm rain. A jacket with a hood, or a conventional poncho, is not recommended, because it will interfere with vision when turning the head.

Fenders Protect Your Bicycle Many cyclists protect themselves from rain by wearing rainproof clothing, but they forget that their bicycles don't like dirty water any better than their bodies do.

The water kicked up by your wheels is much worse for your bicycle than the clean rain falling from the sky. If you ride in wet conditions without fenders, your chain, derailers and brakes will all get sprayed with sandy, muddy, scummy water, often mixed with gasoline residue. This is very bad for these parts.

Even more vulnerable is the lower section of your headset. Headsets are designed to shed water like the shingles of a roof, and are basically rainproof...but the gritty spray from below has easy entry to the bearing surfaces of the heavily-loaded lower races.

Dropped iphone 3gs now it wont turn on

This just happened to me yesterday and this is what worked. You unscrew the two tiny screws at the bottom of the iPhone 3gs then you get a suction cup I used my sons nerf dart. Then you place it on the screen to pull up the bottom of the screen making sure you don't pull it completely out you just lift it a little and when you do you will see a little tab on the bottom left, it looks flat already mine did this is the dock connector piece that connects to something anyway just push the tab down even if it looks like it is pushed down it probably got jolted loose and lost a little of the connection. This was the problem for mine and it works fine now home button and all. VERY IMPORTANT DON'T PULL OFF THE SCREEN THERE ARE MANY CONNECTORE IN THERE JUST LIFE THE BOTTOM OF THE SCEEEN AT AN ANGLE. If this has helped you please follow me on twitter @MTWINKO for general idevice help and info

Ipod got wet while riding in the rain, now it doesn't work

Well if you know it got wet the first thing would be to let it dry out completely before even trying to power it on. If you did attempt to power it on while it was wet you may have shorted it out.

It's a matter of preference as to what you want to do from here, if you don't have a warranty on it anymore you may have to buy a new one.

There is little even a repair shop could do, as they would have to replace the components and would cost around the same as a new one.
