|iPhone in rice|
After dropping my iPhone in the kitchen sink last Sunday morning, I immediately dried it off, took off the protective otter box, shut it down, and and stuck the phone into a bag of rice to dry it out.
Wednesday morning (almost 3 days later), I took it out and turned it on. It worked, but there was still a bit of water smudges that could be seen through the screen (which didn't bother me), but... the darn recharger no longer fit in the recharging slot! Now I would have to check it out with Apple or Sprint - or both - because I can't recharge it.
I'm pretty sure we bought the replacement insurance when we signed the lease, but think there may be a deductible? (DH and I have had the new iPhone6's for about a year.) I would appreciate any input from anyone else who has had this experience. My daughter said that she had to pay $200 to have her iPhone replaced.
Update: Went to Apple Thursday morning and had them look at the phone. They took it in the back and did "something" to it - cleaned out the port that holds the recharging wire??? Whatever they did, it worked and it now fits and recharges! Hooray!
(I had put the phone back into the rice on Wednesday night and the water smudges disappeared too! So hopefully all is well??)
Happy Weekend to all!
