Zte warp got wet


When this happens, immediately remove the battery. Let the phone dry (it may take several hours) before you put the battery back in and try to turn it on. If it is only water, and you act quickly enough, your phone may be okay.

Cellular Phones: Wet by accident solutions


If your phone was accidentally thrown into water or washed you need to
  1. carefully open the phone by unscrewing the back portion but remove the battery first.
  2. After opening the phone let it air dried. DO NOT expose to heat or direct sunlight. Better if you can just expose it to a open electric fan OR a hand dryer and let the air dry it for several minutes or might take longer for pure air dry let's say 3 to 5days of drying.
  3. After minutes/several days make sure all surfaces are dry, chips, case, keys etc....
  4. if the battery is working okay no need to replace but if not after all the drying better if you get a new battery don't use the old wet one.
  5. put the phone back together (make sure you put all the parts just like before). It should work now....
Goodluck!

Phone got wet in my pocket and screen went black then all it does is vibrate new less than a month


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.

My lg ryhthm phone got wet and now its stuck in headset mode


Your phone's headphone jack port is shorting. Try turning the phone off then dry it with a hair dryer for 5 minutes. Turn it back on and see if it helps, if it doesn't well you now have a permanent damage on your phone, its probably the headphone port controller, its busted...

Malfunctioning after getting wet due to rain


Take the battery out of your phone and put your phone and the battery inside of a bag full of dry white rice. Seal the bag and leave it for 24-48 hours. After that time, take it out and see if the keys work like normal again. (White rice absorbs moisture quickly and will dry out your phone quickly)

Thanks for asking.

Samsung G600 - phone asks for sim card but doesnt work when inser


when phones get wet they start to rust from the inside, unfourtunaly this is a long prosses and can take a few months but usually if the phone has got very wet they will not work propley again. they may work temperally but eventually it will probably be completly usless. in future if u wet a phone try drying it immediatly with a hairdryer, inside the battery bit too, this may help the water inside the phone not to cause rusting. sorry about your phone.

Wet Phone - White Screen


I figured it out. I went to tons of websites before I figured it out. you need to order a new flex cable for your phone (only cost about $8 from the website I got it at, which is a lot better than paying $50 or more for a new phone) make sure it's the one that goes to your phone. Once you get it you can install it yourself, just be careful and make sure you pay attention to where it all goes, it shouldn't be too hard. I haven't gotten mine yet but I'm already positive it's going to work, tons of other people have this problem and fixed it this way.
