Water damaged iPhone keeps rebooting - saveable?
Here's the rundown on Monday night (8th, so it's been 2ish days) :
- Knocked iPhone 4 into (clean) toilet
- Took case off
- Quickly wiped a bit with toilet paper
- Put in a bag of rice temporarily
- Vacuumed extra moisture out (there was little)
- Put back in bag, but now with two large desiccant packs
- 24 hours later, vacuumed again
- Plugged in - logo shows, then reboots
Now today (Wednesday), I went to a phone repair shop who will attempt a water-damage treatment. Apparently they have a one-of-a-kind machine that will clean the phone and prevent future corrosion. The process takes several days.
In the case that this doesn't work, is there ANY way to fix this? Surely if it at least boots, it can still be fixed? What I'd want at least is to recover the data (photos and texts). Other posts suggest a battery replacement. In any case, is this phone surely recoverable?
Is this a good question?
