Have a read of this to see if you can revive it.

its worth a try, if it doesnt work then can always cancel the insurance.

Get some dry rice and fill a bowl up half way put the phone in and then cover it over and leave it for a couple of days. The rice draws the moisture out. Should you do the insurance thing not sure on that one really

buy a new one or commit fraud. Tough choice. Depends how you stand on morals.

Will be too late for that now.

Can do it - but is obviously illegal and i wouldnt personally recommend it.

if its a 3g, there is 2 tiny screws at the bottom of the phone (next to the charger dock) , undo them but be careful not to lose them because they are tiny. get a small suction cup and place it on the screen near the button and press it firmly down. now, you need to pull the screen out but push it down towards the off button at the same time (because there is a slight rubber lip around the screen and it will bame it abit easier to pull the screen out) be careful as the screen is attatched via 3 ribbons at the other end (if they come out they just push back on so dont worry) once the screen is partially out ( still atatched at 1 end like say, a car bonnet) rest the phone somewhere in that position. they will help air get in and dry it faster.


The same happened to me, I waited for over a week and found it working yesterday.

if you switch it on in that position to check its working the button on the front will not work as the screen needs to be in the phone.

If you look in the phone you will see the ribbon with a number 1 on it, if that has come loose the screen will look dull (like there is condensation on the inside) make sure that it is pressed down firmly.


Hope this will help, I know what its like having no iphone, I hated it.

If you have accidental damage cover then yes the phone would probably be covered.
