Phone does not turn on cause of heavy rain/water damage
I already checked out some similar post but as I am very unsure what to do, I figured it would be probably the smartest idea to ask again.
Please be patient with me!
First of all I want to let you know I am not good at all with electrical stuff like PC,phones and so on ... so I am also really scared and freaked out by even the simplest step to take like professional cleaning or so, cause I am not confident I can do it and I want to avoid making further mistakes and worsening the situation.
That is the state of art:
So my iPhone was exposed to heavy rain, there was a taifun and it rain so hard my clothes were comletely soaked within 5min. Just to compare the paper money in my wallet which was inside my backback was so soaked I couldnt get it apart and was even able to drain out some water.
The thing is and I know that is the most stupid thing I could have done, I had my iPhone in my breast pocket and I was out in the rain for about 3-4h. At first the phone still workes as I was able to make a picture. After a while I wanted to take another one, but the phone was turned off (so I dont know if it was turned off or not cause the screen was just black) and I couldnt either turn it off or on. Since I had no aother choice I wrapped in into a towel (which got slightle wet later on well). It stayed like this for another 3-4h until I was back home. I immeadetly put it in a bag of rice (which helped me last time when I dropped my phone also into water and letting it sit overnight in a rice bag was successfull). Also this phone had been dropped into the toilet very shortly a couple of times and was always fine.
Last times there was always water dropping out when shaking the phone, but this time not.
So after a night in the rice bag there is still nothing changes, I tried turning it on but nothing. Also connecting it to my PC did not work.
I am leaving today for a week of a homestay program so I dont know what to do.
I really need my phone and the data and all the pictures on it.
Please let me know what I can do best with my limited abilities and time !!!!
Is this a good question?
