Normally, immediately such a thing happens, you would have to dismantle the whole phone and dry its parts. In your situation, it was delayed and what you can do is to send the phone to the nearest phone technician near you. If done on time, there is a chance of not losing the phone. Sometimes even when it works, some components like camera may not work. It all depends on how quick it is done.

You can also obtain a cleaning alcohol, get a technician to dismantle all the parts and use it to clean the main board and all other electronic parts and then allow it to dry. It should work after this. Like I said earlier, it is still not a guarantee that all the functions will work but at least you still get your phone.

My indicators and horn are working intermittently

Check the earth terminals on the horn and indicators. Too much WD40 doesn't help either, you only need to wipe the terminals with a wetted rag of WD40, and used emery paper to cut back to bare metal for a better contact.

There are times we have all got our cell phones wet. A lot of times we might be brushing are teeth, and were so worried about missing a phone call that we put it by the sink, and before you know it your elbow hits the phone and right in the sink it goes. OR the toilet...ewww

Your heart races, and you can't seem to even grab the phone fast enough to get it out of the sink. It almost becomes that old restaurant saying of the 10 second rule. You know the one that that says, if you drop a piece of food on the floor and pick it up with in 10 seconds that it is alright, because the germs have not got on it yet.
Well, with a phone it is kind of like the same thing, except my idea works with patience and will save you some money and save you those very important phone calls you might be missing .
Like: Wife calling cause your out of bread, or Best friend calling to brag about the Giants should of won, but referee made a bad call. You know those real important calls. Here is where I can help you.
First of after you get your phone wet like drop in shower, sink, puddle, or rained on or even the toilet.
You take it out of course, then first thing is take the battery out set it aside and send card out. Get a blow dryer, turn on med heat, and have it back at least 6 to 8 inches, and dry it in every area you can. Battery compartment included.
Next step. Is get your self a lunch size plastic baggy or plastic container that has a lid. And some regular white rice. Fill bag or container with the rice about 3/4 full. mc1bean_1.jpg

Put the whole phone in the bag or container, and with the battery after drying off the battery by hand.(do not put send card in, this dry by hand and set aside) make sure phone and battery is completely sum-urged under the rice. then close the plastic bag or lid on container air tight. Set on counter in cool dry area. Let sit overnight or at least 10 to 15 hours.
Then after that, take phone out and battery, dust off rice grains good. I like to use a can of compressed air ( get at any computer section of any store that sells computers) and blow out phone good. Now put battery back in phone and send card and DO NOT TURN ON YET, but put on charger and wait until completely charged and then turn phone on and you should have phone working again.
If not, then is possible might have to repeat or you have damage some circuits that need to be replaced.
This will solve that wet phone problem most the time, so you can get back to those ever so important calls, like friend calling to let you know who the runner up is on american idol..... Hope this helps MIke

My sim card

sounds like the phone is either still wet or the water shorted out the motherboard and you have damaged the phone. you could try a hard reset back to factory defaults or you might need a new motherboard. Insurance might cover this but manufacturer warranties rarely do, in which case try ebay for spares or a new phone might be cheaper.

My 2000 millenia has a fuel tank that has cracked at the side seam. is there a way to repair this because the best price that I can find for a new tank is 1200.00. I dont know if the car is worth much...

It can be repaired for cheap. You need a tube of Seal-All and some toilet paper. Don't laugh, this really works. The Seal-All can be picked up at the auto parts store or a hardware store.
Clean the seam off with a steel brush to get the rust and loose dirt off. You don't need shiny bare steel. Wipe it down with some window cleaner. When dry, put a coat of Seal-All over the whole area and let it almost dry. Put on another coat of Seal-All and then dab a layer of toilet paper into the wet Seal-All. Let it dry and repeat this again. After 2 coats put a plain layer of Seal-All over the whole patch and you are good.
If you aren't sure then you could also use a product called JBWeld. It's a 2 part glue that should also do the trick, but it does need bare steel to do it's best job.
Hope this helps.

I sat my Pantech Pursuit on the counter and the counter had water on it. Immediately after , I blowdried it . It started working but then the next day i did the same thing. It got wet again and then i...

It could be it got too wet. Often times the blow-drier only makes the humidity inside stronger. How you solve this is you disassemble the whole phone and leave it in rice over night for about 8 hours. COMPLETELY submerged. This sucks all of the moisture out and does not hard the phone with radiation like a blow-drier. Good luck.

My Phone got wet, and the screen is starting to get dimmer.

You're right in thinking it will cause you worse problems in the future. However if you take all the removable parts off, then give the phone a good 'shake dry' and try pushing down slightly on the screen to push out the water, then use an hair dryer on low heat to dry it, you might be lucky and save your phone from death.
Unfortunatly water and electricity (AC/DC) don't go well together.
Good luck.
