Water Damaged Devices

  • What should I do if my device falls into water or another liquid?

    • Best course of action is to do nothing. Do not attempt to turn the device on, charge the device, shake it, or try to dry it out. Next bring your device to your nearest Cheapest iPhone Repair location so our technicians can open up the device to let the liquid dry out. The sooner you can bring your device in the better our chances are at repairing the device.

  • My device fell into water, should I put it in a bag of rice or silica?

    • As long as you leave the device alone on a flat surface, you do not need to put the device into a container with any other materials. Though the device has been known to start working again on its own after being dropped into water, it was not from the rice or silica. Though the sooner you can bring your device in the better our chances are at repairing the device.

  • I dropped my phone in liquid that was not water, can this still be repaired?

    • You name it, we've seen it! From sea water to laundromat, though any liquid can be very damaging to electronic devices, there is no reason to not to bring your device in for the repair. Our diagnostics to determine the device repairability is free.

  • My device was in the water for a long period of time, is it worth repairing?​

    • Absolutely. Though the longer the device is exposed to liquid the chances for repair diminishes, we can still perform our free diagnostics to determine the success rate. ​As mentioned, the sooner you can bring your device in the better our chances are at repairing the device.

  • What is your success rate?

    • For water damaged devices, residue deposits left from the water and the corrosion/rust that begin to form on the logic board will determine each device's percentage of success.

  • If I need to repair the logic board, can you fix this?

    • Yes, we do perform logic board diagnostics and repair.​

  • How Long does water damage repair generally take?

    • Water damage repair can take anywhere from 24 to 72 hours to complete depending on the amount of damage inside the device. This estimated timeframe can vary depending on the extent of the damage to the logic board.
