Customer Question
I dropped my phone...

I dropped my phone in a bowl of water. Grabbed it right away but it doesn't ring. What should I do

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand/model and Operating System (OS) of your smartphone?

It is an apple 5 I think

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your Apple phone? What have you tried so far?

I took the cover off and dried it the best I could. It happened about 30 minutes ago
