    I got my iphone 4s a week or so ago and it was working perfectly other then the usual battery problems. I know myself an how clumsy i am so i bought my self some Body guardz full body screen protector ultra thick wet apply. You get 2 sets of screen protectors.

    Trial 1: This was the first time trying to put on a screen protector. Since i suck at everything i touched it with my fingers and it was dirty.i got fed up with it. So i threw it out

    Trial 2: This one was gonna be better. It ended exact;y like the first one but i at this point i knew i would run out of screen protectors so i just kept trying to make it look just right...After trail and error i finally got it

    As i was looking at it and playing with my iphone i saw that my sound was going in and out...I thought nothing of it thinking that it would just resolve itself. I woke up to no sound working. The unlocking and locking sound comes in randomly.But when i go on youtube no sound...games no sound....Weirdly when i get phone calls i hear my ringtone and when i use siri i hear her. Also when i use the volume up and down button no scale comes up its just blank with the word ringer and the symbol of the sound is coming out

    Tonight im going to do the rice trick and hopefully it will resolve itself.

    Does anyone have any advice they could give me?

    P.S the water indicators have not gone off or it dosnt seem that way

    Did you check on the side to make sure the ringer switch isn't set to silent? If you see orange, you're on silent (I really just hope it's this).

    If there is damage to the phone that you caused yes they will charge you I would never even consider a wet install of anything on my 600 dollar phone!

    My ear speaker lost sound when bestbuy installed my zagg ... Basically there is alittle bit of water .. Turn phone off bust out a hair dryer and blow dry it not too hot if it gets hot turn to cool air and alternate for about a min or so turn phone on and check .. Always fixed mine

    A wet install only requires enough liquid to reduce the tack of the adhesive so it can be adjusted during install. If you're dousing the device with enough fluid to cause water damage then yer doin it wrong.

    I did it with my Palm Pre, when I dropped it in the tub, dried it quite nicely and that sucker still works.

    I've never tried the dryer but I would def make sure holding it back very far. You don't want heat damage either. I would think a minute or so should be enough. Good luck. If it were me and there is no water indication then I would bring it back to the Apply store. Take the sheilds off of course....and don't meniton the water at all. Sounds dishonest but for a $600 phone I probably would do the same. :o

    Take it to Apple and plead your case...the worst they'll do is tell you no, they won't replace it for free.

    And there are quite a few shops (at least in my area) that fix water damaged iPhones for a pretty reasonable cost (less than $200).

    take it to apple...aworst case scenario you get a brand new phone for $200...

    compared to other companies who just turn a blind eye I think its pretty awesome that apple would offer to replace it for what I think is a very minimal charge

    Let us know what happens if you take it to Apple.

    After I dropped my 3GS a number of times, my speakers quit working or only worked some of the time. It had a cracked screen too, so I knew Apple wouldn't replace it. I gave up after the thing completely died on me.

    Best of luck!

    Apple will do a replacement for 199 I believe that may be your only choice at this point!
