Is there anywhere in Swindon that someone could recommend to get my iPhone looked at?

It's been dropped in the bath and now won't turn on or charge.

Thanks in advance.

no recommendations. But try to resist turning it on to avoid blowing things up (internals). if you have any of those silicon gel things you get in shoe boxes and Wang it a ziplock bag. ideally the battery needs out asap (hence your question i guess!).

no help but a women at work fixes then, that was her advice last week after a friend dropped hers down the toilet.

My son dropped his in a pond the other day and I have been looking for a way to fix it. I came across this video on You tube and will probably give it a go....



Incidentally, we tried claiming off our house insurance. It wasn't covered but as a commercial gesture they are going to pay half the value of the phone. You might want to try your insurance as you never know.....

also another option is to put it in rice for 2 days, it will dry the phone out (rice is an absorber).

The first thing I did was put it in rice for 24 hours.

Maybe I should've used basmati rather than brown rice.

A wet and dry vacuum cleaner or window vac will be a better idea than rice. It's more than likely died if you tried turning on or charging it.

Arborio would have done the job.
Not sure rescuing an iPhone would have been worth the white wine & loads of chicken stock though.

the women at work, who repairs iPhones, didn't really rate rice either. Hence the silica gel suggestion.
