    Okay, so I did the same thing. Only I was leaned over the machine grabbing something out and my cell phone fell out of my pocket and into the wash without me realizing it. It also said battery required. I had taken the phone completely apart and let it dry for a few days and put it back together, but no luck. I was wondering if the battery could actually be corrupt of if the phone is just a gone? (Bought replacement phone since it is my only contact number.)

It may be bad forever but try taking off the battery and letting all pieces swim in a bowl of rice for a few days. Rice absorbes moisture and it may do it well enough to get the unit working.

How to dry Pantech C610

I saw this on TV for drying out cell phones...just recently. First remove the battery. Then partially fill two zip baggies with rice. Put the battery in one bag and zip, then put the cell phone in the other and zip. Let stand overnight. They should be dry by morning. Let me know if this works. It really sounded too simple. But logic tells me that the rice WILL draw all the moisture out.

Immediately remove the phone from the water,turn off the cell phone and remove the battery. When you have dried the cellphone by putting in a warm sunny place for several days then reassemble thephone. Hopefully it will work properly but if does not work then it is faultyand you need a new cell phone.

After washing the rugby in the washing machine (accident), all I get is the word DOWNLOAD when I reinstall the battery and press the on button. Let it dry a full day too

Electronics and water do not mix well. The unit is shot - and cannot be fixed.

I put my lg cookie in the washing machine, and i'm wondering if you have any tips on what to do? Will it work again?

Originally I posted this in the droid forum but here you go:

Take everything out, the battery, memory card, etc and do NOT TURN IT BACK ON!!!!! get a big ziplock baggie, put lots of rice in it and submerge the phone in it as well as the battery. Wait 5 days. Then when that time is up, wait one more day. I mean it. This will save the phone. If you pull it out sooner, you could fry your droid. I know you don't want that to happen at all as those are way too expensive. Guard your baby with your life; do NOT turn it on until at LEAST 5 days have passed. Do you really need to see that email/txt so badly that you'll risk frying your phone? ;)

wait the 5 days and one more if you can. The rice trick works amazingly.

Iphone goes to "needs to charge mode"

when you bought the phone you musnt have left it on charge for 24 hours like you are actually meant to. so there are no known solutions for your problem. you can either ask for a new one sent out to you and tell them your problem or you can buy a battery portable battery charger that you can take around anywhere with you. they are approximatly 30 odd dollers.
hope i have helped.

waiting for your ranking.
