iPhone fell into a pool and wont turn on(keeps rebooting)
My friend dropped the iphone into a pool, i quickly got it out and dried it. I put it in rice for 2 days then i tried to turn it on but it had ran out of power (the logo with the battery and the sign that means connect to power) when i connected it to a wall charger it turned on and told me i need to activate it (it also said it had 100 precent battery).
When i disconnected it to plug it into the computer it shut off and when i plugged it into the computer it loops on the apple logo (when i return it to the wall charger it boots ok but keeps saying that i need to activate it). I put it in dfu mode (later on also tried in recovery mode) and tried to restore, it gave me a message The iPhone could not be restored and unknown error occurred (1611). The apple site tells me its a hardware problem.
Can this be fixed or should i buy a new phone?
Is this a good question?
