How much would it exactly cost


Hi @madisonjee,

That's something I cannot answer. I suggest that you ring a few repair services and ask for a quote. It may be that they may not be able to give you a price until they have seen the amount of damage and whether it can even be repaired and they may even charge you for just opening the phone and having a look. Again I don't know. I'm afraid that it will be up to you to find this out. Good Luck!


i do have a same probem. but mine has no water demage. but now my phone has dead. Never work again, and still over heating.

The phone's internal components need to be cleaned and the corrosion caused by the water (and pool chemicals) needs to be removed. Here is a general guide which explains what to do in the event of liquids entering electronic devices.

Electronics Water Damage

Rice is good to eat but unfortunately it doesn't do anything to prevent the corrosion of electronic components caused by the combination of electricity and liquids.

You may need to take the phone to a reputable, professional phone repair service and hopefully they may be able to get it working again.
