Is it worth opening a dead, wet iPhone 4?
My CDMA iPhone 4 went into the lake this weekend. I put it in a bag of rice for three days, then called Apple. We attempted a reset power-up holding both the power and home buttons for 15 seconds. Nothing. Then I charged it (AC) for 2 hours and tried again. Still nothing.
My out-of-warranty cost for service or replacement will be $199 according to Apple. Having repaired many computers - PowerBooks, etc - I'm not afraid to open the thing up, but is there any possibility that I'll be able to find or fix anything?
Also, if Apple realizes that I've been inside my phone will they still replace it for $199? Thanks.
Is this a good question?
