How to disassemble Samsung Galaxy Rush?

DO NOT use your microwave, no matter WHO tries to convince you to do that.

It can be dried, thoroughly, but it\'ll take a lot of time... and it may not work after it\'s dried out.

Buy a big bag of uncooked dried rice, five pounds or more. Make a slit in the side of the bag, slide your phone into the bag through the slit, and work it into about the middle of the rice in there. Tape the slit shut and put the bag someplace where you\'ll remember the phone is in there. Sharpies make excellent marks on rice bags, by the way.

Now go away for one to two weeks. Live an unplugged life, disconnected from that satellite leash. Learn to talk with real people again, real people with real faces and real voices, people you don\'t have to hold clamped against your cheek to confirm they\'re there. Read a book, play a board game with someone, sit on the front porch and smile at strangers. The ones without phones, I mean. The ones with phones will never notice you - you don\'t exist, you\'re not inside their phone.

After a week or two, open your rice bag again, take out your phone. It\'ll be as dry as it\'s going to get, dryer than it was before it fell in the toilet. The dried rice will have drawn every little bit of moisture right out of it.

Or leave it there, if you like. I\'ll bet you enjoyed life more without it.

Dropped iPhone in toilet

Take out the battery from it immediately. Contact the authorized service center. Hot-air treatment to internal circuit board is necessary.

My LG cell phone was dropping into the toilet bowl, I picked it up and all got back to normal after I dried it up. However, the '0" button was not working and no response. Can someone help me?

It is likely an electrical short. You can try burying your phone in a bag of rice (dry, of course) to **** out any more moisture. I've also heard of people putting their phones in the freezer though I have not tried this myself

If this doesn't work there's not much you can do besides taking it in to the dealer. Say it was rained on or the button quit working by itself.. not that you dropped it in a toilet.. and you're likely to get off cheaper or even free

Phone got wet.

Most likely the screen display had a shortcut. You need to replace it, although it's not cheap. Expect to pay a little less than the full price of the phone.

Next time spend more time drying the phone, you can even use a bowl with rice to immerse the phone and leave it dry for one full day.

Dropped fone in toilet

Hi, You can purchase a spray called electric cleaner that cleans small electric components and dries very quickly. But you will have to open the phone and spray on the small circuit board inside. If it still doesn't come up after that then it might possibly be dead. Sorry and good luck Lolita
