Thank you Jason Luna for spreading the word. Even after two swimming sessions, we're so glad we could save your iPhone 6s and data!

"So after hiking after waterfalls yesterday and swimming around, I noticed a phone under the water an then came to realize it was mine. It must of been submerged for about 10 min in about 3 feet of water.

Later on in the day as I was drying it in the sun on a rock trying to save it but not let my phone ruin my day it fell in again for a brief few seconds. There was obvious water damage to my iPhone 6S. I put it in rice overnight which I found out is a myth an does not work.

So I researched around on the net and remembered that I saw a company was featured on the tv show Shark Tank and found it then saw that they carry this machine at Staples. Took it in around 1:30 pm today and picked it up at 2:45 pm and with it not powering on after it did it run through it worked and going through a full battery of testing to all features the phone checked out to be 100% working and holding a charge with no damage to the internals.

Keep these guys in mind if you have a similar situation involving water damage to any electronic device and save your self half a grand on a new phone."

STORIES

A bathtub full of Apple gadgets

Girlfriend gets back at cheating boyfriend by drowning all of his electronics in a bathtub.

After finding out her Apple-loving boyfriend was cheating on her, this young woman scorned took all of his electronic devices and threw them in a bathtub…and we mean all of them. After her boyfriend took to Twitter to showcase the damage, her story of revenge went viral. If the boyfriend in question knew about our service he would have had be a much quicker (and cheaper) fix to his dilemma. We don’t condone cheating or revenge but we do hope to make the dreaded water-damaged device scenario a lot less scary for everyone it happens to, whether it be a phone slipping into the toilet or a bathtub full of gadgets.

How to save a phone that fell in the toilet

A wet phone is never funny but it can be a lot less terrifying if you know the right things to do after the fact.

Whether it falls out of your back pocket or slips out of your hand, we’ve all been there. Hopefully this exact scenario has never happened to you but it’s likely that at least someone you know has dropped their phone in the toilet. Data shows this to be the most common way that phones get wet.


Toddlers, smartphones, and toilets

Has your toddler ever gotten your smartphone or tablet wet? Toddlers, smartphones, and toilets no longer have to be the most terrifying combination that exists.

The rice trick didn’t work for Kanye West when 19-month-old daughter flushed his phone down the toilet recently, so don’t trust it with your wet device!
 
But, celebrity parents aren’t the only ones that have to deal with phones going down the toilet. Along with people who keep their phones in their back pockets, new parents are among those most likely to have a wet phone. The number of accessible electronics in a family household is growing and toddlers are more tech-savvier than we think, putting devices at a higher risk of getting wet.


Even professional athletes use their phones on the toilet

Red Socks player Pablo Sandoval made headlines not for his performance, but rather for using his phone on the toilet during a game.

At least his phone didn’t fall in! Besides embarrassment, his punishment is a one game suspension after admitting to social media usage while going to the bathroom during a game.
