Summer is here and we are getting tons of water damaged iPhones in. Please please please don't put your phones in rice for days. Just turn it off, DON'T CHARGE IT and get it to us ASAP. We can dry it out in minutes. Rice will take weeks and it will rust by that time. It's also important that the battery is disconnected because it will continue to short out the motherboard while it has power. You are usually looking at 2 days for a possible repair of a badly damaged iPhone. We start by trying to save the motherboard like you see pictured above. Sometimes the screen has to be replaced depending on the amount of water it has soaked up. Basic water damage repair starts at $75. 3 locations across Columbia.
