Any and all help is appreciated. Thanks! :icon_ banana:DancingNexusdancedroid:icon_ lala:

    Sorry. Thought that was a joke. You should never ever put electronics in a microwave. Your phone is most likely fried. Pretty sure your only option is to buy a new phone.

    I have to concur... You should NEVER put ANYTHING with metal (other than microwave approved cooking containers) into a microwave, not even for a few seconds or as a joke. VERY BAD things can happen, especially with batteries involved.

    Your Apple iPhone is very likely toast (no pun intended). In fact you should safely dispose of it at a hazardous waste facility. The battery is at risk of developing internal shunts (shorts), and could detonate and create a fire.

    I would get it out of the house at the very least. Put it into a metal bucket or can and place it on a concrete slab outside. You can cover it with a plastic bag to keep it from collecting water or place a larger can over it upside down.

    is this serious? lol I can't tell.

    If you really did microwave it then do what FoxKat said and safely get rid of it.
