Hello,

I dropped my phone down the toilet about 2 months ago and every now and again I keep plugging it into my laptop. Today, my laptop recognised my iPhone, synced all of music over, done a software update and has told me it's charging my iphone up. My iphone hasn't turned itself on - but it keeps buzzing at me.

 

I don't know if this is a sign if it's working? or if it will turn itself on once the battery has been fully restored? I was wondering if anyone can help me?

It's an iphone 4 if anyone is wondering, or if it has anything to do with fixing it? I have no idea when it comes to technology!

 

Thanks.


iPhone 4

    Maybe.  You should have immediately dried it after the swim.  Try that now by putting it in a bag of rice for 5-7 days... it might dry out and you might get lucky although I wouldn't count on it since it's been powered several times over the past few months.  Good luck.

    It was dropped into the toilet two months ago?  It might be a little late... ;-)
