    My girlfriend dropped her iphone4 into the toilet and now the ear piece isn't working, so she can't hear anything.
    I could get a replacement once it dries but I don't want the new software update.
    It doesn't work at all, in any mode.
    Where should I get it fixed?

    You can't get a replacement because the water sensors have been tripped. tell your GF not to text in the bathroom.

    Look for a local repair shop more than likely they can fix it for a pretty fair price

    I'm surprised none of you know this..

    But Apple has been replacing iPhone 4's for FREE with water damage. It's a 1 time deal.

    I've done it 2-3 times myself.

    I've actually done it once myself.
    I did the same thing as my girl.
    I was just wanting the one I had repaired so I could avoid them updating the unit.

    I placed the phone in a bag of dry rice for a while and it's working now.
    Go figure!
