    I need help reviving my iphone 4 from being dropped in water 3 weeks ago. I put it in rice for a few days, but it didnt work after. Tutorials would be amazing! Thanks everyone!

    Ummm, sorry to tell you, but if you tried the rice thing, you're pretty much out of luck. Even putting it in rice, there's only a CHANCE that it will work. It's been 3 weeks, which means it should be all dry inside. If it was going to come back to life, it would have. This isn't really the kind of thing a tutorial can fix. You're gonna need a new phone.

    I did take it apart yesterday, and some parts had drops of water on it. I let it air dry for about 45 minutes.
