Water Damage; Home button not working?
I dropped my iPhone in the toilet (like many have LOL). I did everything I see on the net ie, placed it in rice, placed it in an airing cupboard. After a week, the only things that weren't working were the home button and speakers. I opened it up and cleaned it with electrical cleaner— then back in rice and the airing cupboard for another 3 days. Everything is working apart from home button. I sent it off explaining what had happened, and they replaced the home button—which didn't resolve the issue. They said it has extensive water damage to the circuit board!!
My question is, if this is true, how is it that everything else working just fine? Could it be something else? I have read here that it could be the docking port. It just seems such a shame that my phone works perfect apart from the above, and I'm being told it is beyond repair.
Many thanks for any advice/help,
Just a quick update... I got my iPhone back from the repair shop, and it is in a continuous recovery mode loop—and when I try to restore, I get error 29!!!
I've read about this, and I know I did not upgrade to 3.13. The only thing I did before sending it off was back up all my data on iTunes.
I can't help thinking that they are using the water damage as an excuse because they have caused it to go in this loop.......I really don't know what to do or where I stand in this matter.
