    so he tells me the next day in the afternoon! im like wtf? so the lens has fog so i dry it out completly. two days pass nothing, so i open it up lift up the motherboard and see corrosion on the contacts to the battery :eek: i grabbed some contact cleaner and cleaned them up. and now i dried it up put everything back together, and now charging it but still nothing.. im afraid it might be fried.. :(

    Giving your urine soaked iPhone back to your friend and making him buy you a new one would be my first suggestion.

    He should have already offered. That's just disgusting.

    I have now heard everything regarding an iPhone getting "water" damage.

    Take it to Apple, pay $199 and get a replacement.

    If you're trolling......

    Holy water sports...

    Your "friend" did the damage, have him get you a new one?

    Make him replace it, and don't loan your phone to your friends anymore. :)

    have him put it in a ziplock bag, and then have him pay you $199 for a replacement phone

    that **** is nasty


    I'm pretty suspicious of this as well

    As others have suggested, your only option is a replacement at this point
    Your friend should pay, but given the circumstances, I somehow find that unlikely

    I suggest you find a more responsible friend. Not one who has yet to graduate out of diapers. Good luck! :D

    Sorry to hear that. Gross.

    And I think you just killed the market for secondhand "water-damaged" iPhones.

    is his name Hodge??

    sounds like a friend of my sons. my son had a party last summer when we were at the lake. came home late Sunday night and cralled in to bed at about 1am and DAM!! (ya he slept in our bed while we were gone)

    Anyway his other friend has a 3g. I just put a new screen, dock connector, and vibrate button 2 weeks ago. the next Sunday he woke up and it was sitting in water he said....brought it to me and I took it apart and removed the logic board and battery. you could actually flow the BEER from one end to the other! put it in rice for a week. took it out this morning and cleaned the parts real well. it smelled like he had chinese food and beer for dinner!

    but I fixed it!

    keep nagging him to pay for a new one and after a week or two if he wont ,break his phone but if it is a r tard phone then sue him and the lawyer fees will drag on so then the best thing to do if he wont pay for it after nagging him u go get it replaced for 199.

    or u could tell his mommy
    and (not to be offensive) if ur a women sleep with him or vice versa even if ur gay sleep with him (once again no offense)
    or if u have connections in the mob quote "leave the gun take the canolies

    they gave me a genius report after that. but yea its good that some apple genuis's are kind etc. imagine if i told her the real story she prolly would have threw the phone at the little kid standing by and knock him out to make everything akward while she slowly walks away...
