We receive iPhone 4 repair inquiries all of the time and want to start sharing our responses to everyone. We had a lady from the Las Angeles/Santa Barbara/Tulare county area email to ask us:

I just bought and iPhone 4 and soon after spilled a glass of water on it. I dried it off immediately and it worked soon after. But now this morning it won’t turn on. Can you fix it?

Yes, we can fix that. While iPhone 4 water damage can be very bad, we can typically repair over 90% the phones. The big issue is corrosion but there are ways to avoid it. When your iPhone 4 gets wet you should take the back casing off. Then take the battery and SIM card out. Put it in a bag of rise. Or you can blow with hair dryer (on low). Or you can just let it sit with noted parts removed.

Once it is completely dry you mail it to use. We offer diagnostics service if you prefer that in the iPhone 4 repair process. You can see all the needed shipping information during the checkout process. It is very simple and shipping is free. A common problem when people spill water on their iPhone is powering it on or leaving it on. When a phone is not completely submerged people get a false sense of security. Until your iPhone 4 is completely dry you don’t power it on.

This email came from the area in California that encompasses the cities of  Bakersfield, Palmdale, Santa Clarita and Lancaster all of which are near Los Angeles/Santa Barbara/Tulare County. The beauty of the mail-in service is we can help no matter where you live. Let us know if you have any further questions.
