IPHONE wont switch on

Hi there, My husband put my iphone thru the wash for a few minutes forgetting the phone was in his pocket! We let it dry out for about a week, it switched on, actually could push a few icons and make it work. I let it dry out for another day or two, ALL the icons/buttons worked, I made a phone call from the phone. THen the next day it started beeping, showing the apple logo and now it wont do anything, the screen is COMPLETELY black and the phone doesnt appear to turn on. Why would it work and now nothing??ANy suggestions to get it working again???

Thanks, Brenda Heinbuch

You're probably out of luck. I'm actually surprised it worked at all.

My iphone 4 drop in my dishwater with bleach will it dry out and work again

Dropping a switched on cell phone into bleached water will certainly damage the electronics in the cell phone.
You can remove the battery and dry it out, but most likely it is damaged beyond repair.

If i dropped iphone in the snow and couldn't find

It might work.
Remove the battery and dry the phone for a few days in a warm dry location. Replace the battery and charge the phone overnight then switch the phone on and see if it works, if not it may not be worth repairing, get a repair quote then you can decide whether to get a new phone.

My iphone wont start i was working with it till i went to lunch i put it in to my pocket then wen i toke it out dead it wont start i tryed the home and power everything nowthing i connect it to pc itunes...

Disconnect the cable.
Hold down the home and power button for 15+ seconds.
When the phone turns off, wait a minute then power it back on with the top button.

If it is still stuck in recovery mode, open itunes, connect the phone, and follow the prompts after it says it detected an iphone in recovery mode.

Hi my iphone 3gs wont connect to my house internet but my house internet works fine with my laptop and other iphones

I'm assuming you've put in the proper password (watch for caps) and that you've tried forgetting the network and adding it back in?

Do you have your router set up to only allow a specific number of connections?

I had the iPhone in my pocket when it was raining and now it refuses to work. Is there anything I can do to try and get it back working or is it fixable if i took it to a phone repair store? Also would it...

How long ago did it happen? As strange as it sounds, put the phone in a bag of dry rice for a few days and the rice will draw the moisture out. After several days, plug it in to the charger and try to power it on. If that doesnt work, you might have to send it back to apple.

Forget my iphone password

In order to fix this, you will have to restore your iPhone to its original factory settings. Hopefully you have all of your e-mails/documents backed up somewhere! (all your apps and music should be safe in iTunes.
Plug your phone into the computer and when it tells you that its locked, put the phone into DFU mode by pressing and holing the center button as well as the sleep/wake button for ten seconds. It will then go dark for several minutes and then boot back up.

Forgotten your iPhone Passcode?
If you have forgotten your iPhone's Passcode you will need to restore your phone via iTunes.
But first you have to put your phone into the restore mode which is a slightly fiddly process.
Plug your iPhone into your PC or Mac with the USB cable
Press and hold the power button at the top and then slide to power off the iPhone
Press the power button to power the iPhone on and keep it held while simultaneously pressing the home button
After a few seconds a yellow alert triangle will appear and the iPhone will say it is iPhone Restore Mode.
Open up iTunes and click on the Summary tab
Click on Restore to restore your iPhone. This will reset all your iPhone's setting to the factory defaults, including the Passcode. You should then follow the steps above to activate the Passcode with a memorable number
