Thread: Water Through Speaker Holes?
04-23-2009, 04:01 AM #1Water Through Speaker Holes?
Would it be worth it to buy a small silicone cover for the dock connector of my iPhone to help keep out water, or could water get in through the speaker holes just as easily?
My last iPhone died because the bottom part fell into some water and I don't want it to happen again.

Don't know about covering up the speaker holes unless youalways use headphones. Covering the dock sounds like insurance.
Be careful around water

Haha yeah thanks. The water was in a very unexpected place, but I will definitely be more careful next time.
I don't plan on covering the speaker holes (not really sure how I would!) but I was just wondering if it would be pointless to cover the dock connector since the speaker holes are there too. I did forget about the water sensor in the dock though, maybe the plug could protect that...

Yeah, anything you cover is just gonna help obviously, but as stated, covering the speakers prolly aint gonna work good.
But yes, water can get through them pretty easy.

that is amazing! I wonder if it leaves some kind of strange residue on the phone's screen. I'll be considering it for the next iPhone.

That way you could go to the beach or lake and not worry about leaving it in your suit pockets!
They charge $120.00 to coat an iphone
