You must not switch on after the water has entered into the cell because some short circuit may occur and some components will get damaged ...

you can try some of the tips given here ...

1)remove the battery..

2) open your cell if you good at opening the handset and take a hair drier and dry the cell completely so that if there is any water particle inside it will get dry ..

3) after the drying is complete then try it switching on ...

it must work after drying completely ...
try changing the battery because the battery might have got damaged due to short circuit ...

once you try switching on with other battery after the completion of drying .. it should work ..

I dropped my nokia e71 in water, i left it sit for three days then plugged it in and it turned on, everything works perfectly except it will only stay on for about an hour to three hours maybe, so im wondering should i just replace the battery or is it the whole phone that is the problem?

I have a Nokia E71 phone and my kid dropped it in to water tub and then we removed battrey in it immediatly and then wiped with a cloth and did put infront of fan heater and then plugged in but still did...

This is not enough for a water damaged phone - take it to a phone repair shop and the water drops still can remain near the components of the motherboard.

I have Nokia E71 and my Kid droped it in to water and my wife immediatly reomved the battrey and wiped it with a piece of cloth and did put infornt of a heater and then put back the battrey but still it...

Sorry to hear that. If it doesnt come may be wait for a couple of hours or a day and if the status is same most likely the water managed to enter inside and spoiled the components inside. Also check the battery contacts area before visiting to service center

Hi by accidentally I drop my nokia E71 cell phone in water the next day I kept it dry in sun now when I'm trying to call anyone its saying no network coverage do anyone have idea to solve this problem

Have you tried getting a new SIM card? I would definitely try to replace the SIM card, it could have easily been the SIM getting damaged in the water. Give it a try, they will give you one from your cell phone carrier.
