Move that bottle of water away from your iPhone right now. Do it. Do it and then you can read.
Did you move it? Good. Let’s continue.
Within a year of purchasing an iPhone 4, 15.5 percent of people will have an accident with it. The most common of those accidents are the iPhones being dropped into toilets, swimming pools, lakes, slipping from a lap or being knocked off a table, or, the reason why you had to move your water, liquid being spilt on them. Soda is even worse, but water is the most common. And believe it or not, 16 percent of all iPhone accidents happen in the bathroom.
While we probably don’t want to know what you’re doing with your iPhone in the bathroom, there is an answer for you should you drop your phone into that toilet bowl. And it’s not shoving your iPhone into a bag of rice. That answer is, iPhone repair. Believe it or not, it’s out there. iPhone repair, cell phone repair, iPad repair and places to buy iphone parts are actually pretty common. And chances are, it’s far cheaper to find iPhone repair than it is to replace the phone for damages that aren’t covered by the warranty.
That’s right, if you pour that bottle of water on your iPhone, it won’t be covered. Sorry.
While random accidents caused by strange shenanigans or general negligence in care and use aren’t covered by the warranty on your iPhone, the phone battery is. Outside of accidents, most of the issues that techs responsible for iPhone repair tend to come across is with the phone batteries. Any iPhone repair technician will tell you that a battery is easy to take care of and replace, but it’s the lasting damage from negligence that even they have a hard time rectifying.
Minor water damage can easily be cared for by tossing your iPhone into a bowl of uncooked rice. The rice will dry the phone out and put it into working condition once again. The will not summon an iPhone repair technician. If the rice doesn’t work, however, it might time to take your phone into an iPhone repair shop. Even if It was dropped, the people who work at any of these repair depots will know exactly who to fix your phone.
