Went into hot tub with g1 for like 2 secs then went out. now it turns on until it says g1 but it stays there then faids away


you could 'dry out' older phones when they got wet years ago, but these new smartphones have so many components that when wet, they usually ruined. If you have phone insurance use it, otherwise happy shopping. Best of luck

I dropped my year-old Q9c in an unmentionable reservoir of water, pulled it out instantly, gave it a very quick rinse. It worked normally for several hours, then the screen went black, but the phone still...


You need to try Silica Gel Packets to dry out your phone. There was a good article on associatedcontent.com that explains how to dry a wet cell phone, iPods, or any electronics.

You need to place your cell phone in a zip lock bag with Silica Gel Packets. Silica Gel will remove all the moisture from the phone and its components, something air drying will not do!

Just Google "Silica Gel Packets" and you will find several companies selling these products. There is also a web site called: http://www.SilicaGelPackets.com that has them.

Blackberry cell phone got wet; won't work


It sound like the circuitry in your keyboard got fried. If your lucky and the damage isn't severe, the techs at you phone provider's store may be able to fix it.

good luck

In my experience when getting a phone wet your only choice is to let it sit. It could take a few days or a month but soon or later they usually fire back up.

Wet dash


There's still water in it. You'll need to take the battery out and let it dry another two days. I got my phone wet one time and it took a week before it worked again.
