My phone was submerged in water for about 90 seconds. Will it still work and how long should I wait before trying it?

You should probably wait for a few days to ensure it's completely dry on the inside. I have heard other folks suggest that putting the phone in a bowl of white rice for a few days is a great way to dry it out. The rice will absorb the moisture.

Did the case cover the entire phone or just the sides and back like most?

Iphone does not connect to wireless networks anymore

It would appear that the internal antenna is faulty and will need to be repaired.

The internal parts might have got damaged when you dropped it. You will have to take your phone to the nearest Apple store and get it repaired.

Dropped iphone in water apple wont go away

1) Immediately turn phone off by holding down power button and sliding to off.
2) Use canned air duster to blow water out of all holed in the phone such as headphone port, sim tray hole and the bottom port
3) Place phone in sealed baggie containing silica packs (come with shoes/coats, etc) or uncooked rice for at least 24 hrs.
4) In this time, DO NOT try to power the phone on, this can easily cause a short and ruin a phone that may have otherwise survived.
5) Wait 1 or 2 days and remove from the rice/silica which should have drawn out the water. Now try and power on the phone. I have seen these steps save a soaked iphone more than once.

Good Luck

Wet (damp) iphone no sound!!

This has been happening a lot with Iphones and also with the microphone input. either u need to update ur handset or revert to see if this is the problem...

Also save all ur info on your computer and do a master restore from the computer on itunes.

Call customer care.....If you are still in warranty Your item can be replaced......I dont think water is the problem because you would have issues with your screen ..I do not sufggest saying that is the reason either because apple does not cover items if it is water damaged.

Go to this specific page to talk with an apple expert. of these problems are not resolved.

I dropped my phone today and now it wont work

When you dropped it you loosened up the digitizer connector which is number 2 under the screen. Open your iPhone and resit that wire firmly back in. That should fix the digitizer not working.

If its a 3G just unscrew the 2 screws at the bottom and use a suction cup to remove the screen. Easy. But if its a 2G then Good Luck.

My home button on my IPhone is not working. Last night i dropped it in water and quickly retrieved it. i dried it off with a blow-dryer and now the only thing that doesn't work is the home button.

If your device gets covered in water, act fast and rationally, and you may be able to save your device.

2. Pull out the battery.
3. Please your device and battery into a bowl of uncooked rice to absorb any moisture.
4. Please it in a warm, dry place where it can receive direct sunlight.
5. Be patient. It is recommended that you leave it in there for at least 48 hours.
6. After 48 hours, put the battery back in and power on.
