2 days in rice and 2 seconds of q-tip worked after a toilet dip!

Thank you thank you!!! The hairdryer and qtip in headphone jack SAVED MY NEW IPHONE6!! So appreciative!!!! Thank you thank you!!!!

OMG, I dumped my bottle of water in my purse with my phone in there and the speaker wasn't working I could only use speaker. I searched inline all day and had lost hope. Finally I came across your article and tried the q tip and blow dryer method and low and behold it works again! Thank you thank you thank you!

Inserting the q-tip inside worked for me! Thank you so much!!

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! It works :D

Yes, thank you sooooo much also! Qtip and dryer did the trick! You just have to do this as soon as possible and then be patient, like wait the next day to turn your phone back on again. You helped save my iPhone!!!
I have to say I have not been very lucky with my iPhones... within the last 2 years: water damage (twice counting this once), broken screens (twice, once dropped, once broken by someone else), theft (twice also, and not by negligence), and one simply died... just after the warranty expired, of course. That's why I'm soooooo happy that I got some good luck this time!!!!
A bit of advice (that I have learned... from experience):
1. even if it doesn't look as nice, protect it with a case, always;
2. never, EVER, leave your iPhone in your back pocket (theft, + fall into toilet);
3. put your iPhone in a zipped compartment of your bag, or hold on to it tight... hands of thieves can be very quick and unnoticeable.

the blow dryer worked like a charm, had to do it 5 times but I kept at it and it worked perfectly. thanks for the advise, saved my phone

I just got the new iphone 6s+ as a present 2 weeks ago, so you can imagine my horror after dropping it in the bath tub. I tried the Q-Tips, but to no avail, yet after less that a minute of blow drying, it was perfectly fine! Thank you so much!

Earlier today I had gone on a water roller coaster, and since I have the common sense of a 15-year-old, I decided to bring my phone along. I was able to protect it pretty well, besides some wetness on the screen, but when I got home about 4 hours later I realized my speaker wasn't working. Stuffing cotton from a Q-tip into the headphone jack (water was still stuck in there and my phone responded to it as having earbuds in) and applying a little cool air from a blow dryer completely fixed it. Thank you so much for posting this, I would never have known what to do.

PRAISE THE GOOD LORD JESUS!!! YOU SAVED ME AND MY LIFE! MY DADDY WOULDA WHOOPED MY BUTT. I WOULDA HAD BLISTERS, BUT THANKS TO YOU HINESSIGHT I DONT HAVE NO BLISTERS. I DID WHAT YOU TOLD ME TO DO... OH PRAISE LORD BECAUSE IT WORKED AND NOW I CAN TALK ON THE PHONE TO MY KIDS IN OKLAHOMA. THANK YOU HINESSIGHT AND THE GOOD LORD JESUS, I AINT GOT NO TIME FOR A WET FONE. I DROPPED IT IN THE TOILET, NOW I GOTTA GO TO WALMART AND GET SOME CLOROX WIPES OR SOMETHING. BUT AT LEAST I CAN TALK ON THE FONE TO MY KIDS AND BABYDADDY!!! HUGS AND KISSES. HAVE A BLESSED DAY,

Ok so earlier today I dropped my phone in the toilet (classy right?) and I tried just about EVERYTHING (q-tip, pulling headphones out quickly, blowing, rice etc.) and nothing worked UNTIL NOW!! I heated up my phone with a hair drier for about 5 minutes, until I got the "i phone is too hot and needs to cool down" message, and once my phone cooled down, the sound was back to normal!! Thank you so much, this was the only thing that worked!!

Thank u so very much! It worked. There was moisture in headphone jack and the phone acted as if headphones were plugged in. Though it started working the moment i was abt to give up cleaning using Q tip., thanks again

After drying thoroughly, I cleaned inside the earphone jack with a q tip, teting every 10 seconds or so, and it worked!!! Took about 2 minutes of turning the qtip around clockwise/anticlockwise and moving up and down. Thank you so much for sharing this!

OH my godd... thanks so much! I accidently droped the iphone in the toilet. And i did see that it was saying headphone. I dried it many times, and used a blow drier. But it never worked. I then started using the qtips. After trying it at least 8 times, the speaker now said iphone instead of headphones but still no sound until i realised my volume was low. Thank you thank you thank you as it was not my phone.

Tried cotton buds no response to regain sound then used a genle heat with a hairdryer on phone worked a dream yea 🌟 πŸ™ πŸ˜† Thank you so much

Omg, the q-tip worked
Thank you so much
