    A couple of weeks ago i accidentally swam with my Iphone 3gs, and back then i didnt know that rice helped so i tried my best to dry it .
    Now , when i plug it in to the charger it starts up but it says that i need to connect the Iphone to Itunes.. So, i plug my iphone into the computer and guess what .. It doesnt work. First it shows the apple logo , then everything goes black , then it shows the apple logo again , and it goes on and on like that.
    Any suggestions?
    Oh , and i have changed battery on the iphone and its still the same.

    Sounds to me that it's time for a new iPhone. This one is likely totally ruined.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    That happens when electronics get wet.
    Most likely the phone is ruined and shorted out.
    Out of warranty replacement would be $200.
