Re: Amhaz (Stars Communications) shop

Has anyone experienced a water damaged iPhone?
Not necessarily bought from Amhaz, I just didn't want to open a new thread about this.

Recently an iPhone 7 plus got water damaged while taking pictures and video in the pool (just a few centimeters deep).

Anyone experience such a thing? And is there a chance for the phone to work?

Best thing you could do is not to power on the phone and trying to let it dry for several days.
Look up different methods to dry it, some suggest to put it in rice for a couple of days while others say it is bullshit.

Re: Amhaz (Stars Communications) shop

rice is bad, you need different methods of drying. I tested it as drying agent - it is near useless.
If water damage was severe and you didnt bring it to service to disconnect the battery physically and dry under heat gun (carefully! without desoldering), most likely you have corrosion under some elements and it will need much more expensive service, bga reballing and etc.
