Dominic Howes called me from Mill Valley, California (94941) where he was visiting relatives for Christmas.
He is actually from Minnesota and had put his iPhone through the washing machine. Not only that, he decided he was capable of repairing it himself. By the time he was though with it, he wasn't an inch closer to making it work and had damaged the jack that holds the microphone and speaker connection on the logic board together.... and he had discovered the digitizer wouldn't work at all plus the LCD had water trapped in it.

This shows the corrosion damage to the baseband and OS areas of the logic board.

He brought it by and left it off with $60 so I could try to make it work again. The first part to solve was getting the digitizer to work, if I could get that going then I could replace the LCD screen and then I could evaluate and correct the broken jack for the mic/speaker.

The first I re-assembled the iPhone, I hadn't gotten the digitizer solved... and had to take apart again and work through it. The second time, I got it, then I went to solve the two other problems.

The only way we could really know if it worked was with his SIM card in it... did I forget to tell you that he's a T-Mobile user? Which means that his phone had been jailbroken *and* unlocked! He showed up with his brother Dan and switched in his SIM then called Dan to test the microphone /speaker connection. It worked perfectly. Dan is on the right.

Notice the WiFi connectivity is working perfectly and all of his messages, songs and photos are still there.

The LCD was $30 and labor was $60

Fixed - Total cost $90.
