    Hello, everyone. I currently repair iPhone 3G but this is the first time Im working with an iphone 4. My good friend droped in the toilet and than picked it up right away. After he dried it he than try to power it on (idiot) it did power on but he told me it was stuck on the apple logo. He gave me the phone about four hours later and I just took the phone apart. Any suggestions and percautions I should take? I never dealt with a water damage issue.

    Thankyou in advance to everyone and any help will be greatly appreciated.:confused:

    i've heard that a day or two should be good enough. if you live in an area that is warm, let the iphone sit on the windowsill so that all the moisture can evaporate.

    also, don't reuse the rice.

    IP4's back is easy to remove. Take it off for better ventilation while it dries.
