Hi there I was just wondering if anyone has any tips for water damage... I have had my phone in rice for the last 3 days with no success. The phone itself was fine but the home button wasn't working. But then I went to check on it this morning and it had ran out of battery but it's now not reacting to the charger and this comes up... The photo isn't clear but it wants me to somehow connect to iTunes?! Is it possible to get water damage repaired or have I ruined my phone? Thanks!

Your iPhone is telling you to connect to iTunes on the computer to do a recovery or restore. Water damage can corrode metal parts inside the iPhone and you may have to get it repaired or replaced. You can try plugging it into to do a restore, by I'm afraid you may have bricked your phone.
