Episode 985 (1:24:27)

Lillian from Solvang, CA

Lillian put her iPhone 4S through the washer by mistake. She dried it out in rice and most functions have come back, but she wants to know what else she can do to get it all working again. Leo says that Apple will know if the phone got wet, so she shouldn't deny it. There are third party iPhone repair companies that can repair her phone. A good technician can fix it. The real key is to shut down the phone immediately and then dry it out in rice for well over a week or more. Go into Apple and see what they'll be able to do. They will likely charge her $200 for a replacement.
