My iphone6 fell in the toilet for a very short time.  I pulled it out and dried it.  Did not turn off.  No volume- says "headphones"  Any suggestions

I'm sorry to learn your phone met the toilet, price64. It's likely that the water has damaged the ports, although it was only for a short time. If you have insurance, I recommend filing an insurance claim for a replacement. http://spr.ly/6583BdGOF

Hi Thank you for answering my question. I had powered off the phone and

since I don't have the insurance I just let it sit for 48 hours to dry

out. Then I charged it and it powered on. So far (knock on wood) all is

working perfectly- It's only been a couple of days. Hopefully it lasts

another year...but any additional usage I can obtain from the phone is less

money I will have to pay to buy out my Edge contract if the phone dies or

is unusable in some way. I did read that mineral deposits will still have

probably caused some damage and my phone could stop working any time.

sorry but option be start saving money or start looking for used phone or keep asking friends who might selling old phone...one year is long time just make yourself ready don't wait for last moment. try not to spend a lot just in case in year nothing happen.
