Water damaged, comes on when charging, no service, no homebutton
I dropped my iphone 3gs down the toilet, literally 10 seconds. Died on me. Put it by radiator (not on it!) for 2 days then in a bag of rice in airing cupboard for 3 days. A friend has taken it apart & cleaned with alcohol. When its plugged in it comes on, screen is slightly dim & water marked but can see apps etc on it. Firstly when plugged in it makes the sound like its just started charging & does this every few mins, when it first 'fires' up there is one bar in signal then goes to searching then says no service?? Secondly obviously not holding charge so as soon as unplugged screen goes black & nothing there. Thirdly the home key doesn't work! I'm not very technical at all but hoping with info & advice on here I might be able to get a friend to have a go at fixing for me! Any chance of saving it?? Thanks in advance
Is this a good question?
