How to Save Your iPhone from Drowning

iFixYouri specializes in repairing broken iPhone, and have posted a quick tutorial on what to do if you iPhone is water damaged.

Once the iPhone is out of the water, you want to make sure it is powered off.

If you get a white pinwheel on the screen and it won’t turn of, you hold down the power button and home button until it turns off. In the video we failed to record it powering back on after we powered it off. We simply repeated the ‘power off process’ and moved on to the next important step; remove the SIM card.

Once the SIM card is removed you want to put the iPhone in an uncooked bag of rice. Tighten the bag so all extra air is gone and seal it.

If you follow the above above steps and mail the water damaged iPhone we can fix it as good as new. If you decide you want to see if it works for yourself, wait 48 to 76 hours after the water exposure and then try it out. If you find at that time it is not functioning properly as a result of the iPhone water damage put back in the rice and mail to us.

The company says it has a 90% success rate at repairing iPhones that have taken a swim, so if the above process doesn’t work for you, there is always plan B. If they can’t repair it, then you get your money back. Have any Touch Fans left their phone in their swimming trunks and had it live to tell the tale?
