Normally after drying out, It should work, If its not tho, you will prob be better off replacing it... If you have a nice one, With built in Answering machine and all that, check to see if its expandable, If so then just buy a expandable headset as a replacement, That way you keep the same phone system, get a new phone, and it works as good if not better than your old one.

Phone got wet fix

It's probably too late, but first open the case, take out the battery and shake out any water. Then place in a jar of rice (absorbs all the water). Then let it air dry overnight. After all is thoroughly dry, replace battery and try it out. The reason it may be too late, is that with the battery in, electrolysis takes place and damages connections and circuit boards. I hope it's not too late for you.

Fell my xperia s in salt water

This happened to my phone once, I just took it apart (the bits I could, sim card, battery, cover etc) then dried it for quite some time with a hairdrier (on a cool setting) then left it over night apart. Put it back together in the morning and it worked. I'm guessing there was still water/ moisture inside of it to stop it working..

My nokia e7 fell into water and won't turn on

Wet Cell Phone
Immediately remove the phone from the water, turn off the cell phone, remove the battery and SIM card. To dry out the cell phone put it in a large plastic bag with silica gel drying crystals then put it in a warm sunny place for several days or in front of a warm fan heater for several hours. Reassemble the phone and hope it will work properly again, but if does not work then it is faulty and you need a new cell phone.

My cordless phone fell in the toilet, it worked briefly after it happened but now is dead. Anything I can do?

Once a piece of electronic equipment gets wet, you need to disassemble it, remove the battery and dry it carefully using a lint free cloth. Then use a hair dryer2_bing.gif to dry it out. Do not put the hair dryer too close as you could overheat and damage the item. If you wait too long to do this, the water may have already fatally damaged your phone as things begin corroding quickly. Good luck!

Dropped phone in water

SIM is probably bad or a little wet. but wait and let everything dry out and see if it works. Mine was soaked and the next morning worked fine. at least you probably won't have to buy a new phone.
