LMAO!!!! So sorry as its not the first time I've heard this .. Your gonna need to get some sort of degreaser for electronics such as chemtronics products, such a tun-o wash type product that dosent have any lubercant in it. Now once you get this spray, spray alittle on the back of the phone to make sure it dosent desolve the bloody thing. If it dosent, start spraying all the stream into the mouth and ear piece, while at the same time shaking out all the oil as it should if you get the right stuff. Them its gonna get really cold with this spray so dont hurt your self. Now make sure the batterys unpluged and let the unit dry up for a day or two and then insert the battery again and see if it worked or not. You got a 50:50 shot . If it works great Im a hero, if it does Not, OH well i tryed.. Good Luck

Hi mshedgehoq You need to take the micro sd card out of the phone put it into your computer and make a copy on the sdcard from your computer. Your husband did a hard reset should not have wiped out all the information. If you go to my files look for lost.dir and see if all the informationd is still in their. Now your husband didn't do anything to the phone it is thr way of all dtoids to put your information in the lost.dir ok Hit that menu and you should see all your information. The hard reset did it's job which is to wipe the phone competely out of data like brand new.

any water or liquid exposure on the phone will damage it's mother board. It needs to be fixed and needs a replacement on other parts on it, there is no assurance that it can still be fixed.
