    Hey people

    So I managed top drop my iPhone 5 in the toilet (yeah ha ha ha).

    I snatched it up quickly and let it sit in a bag of rice for a while. Now it works as it should, everything except the speakers. Not a sound. I just figured fair enough, the speakers are broken and that's not weird considering most of the phone was actually under water.

    The weird thing though is that I discovered the speakers work perfectly when I set an alarm, meaning theyre not broken at all. How is this possible and is there a fix?


    Update: the speakers also work when I get a call, however when I call someone, I can hear the beeps, but when they pickup I cant hear them at all unless I put the speakers on...

    Give it some more time. More things will stop functioning due to water damage.
    It's not as easy to pinpoint what needs to be replaced when there's water damage.
    Corrosion sets and shorts can show up with multiple things.

    Make sure the mute switch on the side is set properly. Alarms will go off even when set to MUTE.
