iPhone 4 Charging Problems

Well my iPhone has had a rough couple of weeks and now I need some help. iPhone 4 - AT&T

About 2 weeks ago I cracked my screen. It still worked fine, I cleared out the loose broken glass and told myself I would just deal with it. Well a few days ago my phone had a few drops of water land on it and I think I think a little of the water went into the hole in my screen (towards the top of the screen). My phone went completely dead soon after.

I dried it off as good as I could and stuck in a bowl of uncooked rice. About 4 hours later it came back to life and worked normal the rest of the day. I plugged it in for the night, but when I woke up the next morning it didn't charge at all. No matter what I did it wouldn't charge (hooked it up to 2 different computers, the car charger and the wall charger). Once the battery completely ran out it won't do anything, even when it is plugged in.

I was able to purchase a new battery for about $6 so I did and popped that in. Same issue. I was able to use my phone for a bit since the battery came charged at about 5%, but once it died it was done for good again.

Anyone have any suggestions on what I can try or if there are any specific parts I can try and replace next? Thanks a bunch for your help!

Bummer... The best case is if u have insurance on the phone. Otherwise maybe Apple or your service provider will work a replacement deal. I don't think your gona have any luck with the one u have.
