    Default 4S got wet and won't turn off

    SOS!

    My niece's iPhone 4S had water drip onto it for an undetermined amount of time. She tried to turn it off upon discovering that it got wet. But the phone would not turn off. She says it continues to display the Apple logo, which flickers till it's almost off, then flickers back on again. She's worrying that she might lose all her class notes on Voice Memo, among a lot of other data.

    What should she do? Thanks!

    mmm....oh boy. Put it in bigas or dry cabinet to soak as much of the moisture from the unit (let it drain). Do it now. Wait a couple of days before charging itBut to be safe, don't handle the unit with your hands before plugging it to preclude the possibility of electric shock.

    I agree on this one. Rice or desiccant trick is an option only if it's not possible to immediately bring device to a hardware tech.

    If all of this doesnt work call Apple Support I worked there before and what we do before is escalate the case and see what happens. But take note the phone must be purchase either globe or smart, Since there are no official official iPhone service center here.
