    My wife dropped her iphone 4 in water while incase. We put it in rice for a day. couldn't get it to turn on. I plugged into Itunes and it recognized everything. It did an restore update to current version and backed up and restored all information. Still can't get to turn on. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks-you

    If you've put it in rice and dried it out completely to the point that it worked while plugged in but won't work while it's not plugged in the I'd say somethings corroded and your outta luck,, you might find a 3rd party repair place that can fix it for you.

    If it's really water, you've a chance by thoroughly drying it out and doing nothing else until then. If it's anything else (soda, juice, etc) repair or replace it, because that stuff can't dry out.
