Drop my iPhone in the snow, wiped snow off, 2 min later no more sound, does it make any sense?
yes snow = water = bad
Makes complete sense to me, water damage.
Water could of got into the phone and maybe affected the circuits. In which case yes it makes sense.
wierd how some people can completely submerge theirs in water and work perfect and other will break if a drop of water touches them lol
Actually, I am able to hear the different ring tones in settings but my keyboard sound and games sound don't seem to work no more....
Makes perfect sense.
It happened to my iPhone twice (once with the rain and another with snow). I just left my phone on top of the heater (not too hot just warm air) for a while. It didn't fix the problem right away but after couple of days later it went back to normal.
My friend recently dropped his iPhone in the snow and apparently he noticed it an hour later. He had to dug through the snow to find it and it had the same problem. He said his phone works completely fine.
Cool. Had a hard time rebooting now. I'll shut it and leave it near a baseboard.
Kinda random question but were you at northstar? I was getting in line for the lift when I saw an iPhone fly out of someones hand and land in the snow.
It's not on silent is it?
The switch on the side is set right, unless there's somewhere else. My sound is on.
turn it off put it in uncooked white rice for 48 hours.
I actually heard chicken fried rice works better.
or some chow mein.
shut it off for 2 hours and had it in dry rice...works fine now..
I'd put it in longer
just to be safe. i'd make sure all the moisture is pulled out. also check your moisture sensors see if you have warrenty.
Where do I find the mositure sensors?
ones in the headphone jack. get a flashlight and shine down, if you see red, you're out of warrenty.
the other is by the connector on the bottom. if your phone is screen side up, its right underneath the connector.
The water probably triggered one of the water sensors, in which case, you will no longer be covered under Apples warranty. They will say you have water damage and they don't cover that. But like the other guy says, you should check the sensors and make sure. If they are red that's bad, if they are white that's good.
iPhone stew. . . mmm . . . tasty . . .
