SOURCE: Wet phone has black screen

You took all the right steps, including the rice. Unfortunately, even the rice method doesn't always catch the moisture before it does it's damage. The next step is to take the phone back to the store where you purchased it and have them see if it is salvageable. The other thing to check is where you stand with your contract. You may be able to replace the phone by extending your contract. good luck.

SOURCE: Phone got wet.

Most likely the screen display had a shortcut. You need to replace it, although it's not cheap. Expect to pay a little less than the full price of the phone.

Next time spend more time drying the phone, you can even use a bowl with rice to immerse the phone and leave it dry for one full day.

My samsung impression dropped in water and touch screen broke

I also dropped my Samsung Impression in the toilet, I immediately took the phone took the protective case off, took the battery cover off, and took the battery and my SIM card out and towel dried it as best as I could. Then I sat it on the floor next to my fan and let it dry until I got to my grandparents a little while later and I put it in a bowl of rice, completely covered the phone and battery with rice and left it sit overnight in the rice and all of the next day, so far i've had it on about 20 minutes and have had no problems with it so far, another solution is to sit it in the sun, to further dry it out. Water damage will void warranties on your phone and battery and your provider will know instantly if the damage was water related when they take your battery cover off, there is a small square sticker that when dry and hasn't touched water should be white, but as soon as it comes into contact with water it turns red, there is also one of these stickers on the battery. My stickers were red and after sitting in the rice they look like they got lighter in color considerably, I don't know if that is really possible but appearance wise it looks that way. I hope this helps anyone who has had this problem. Good Luck!

This same thing happened to me, except it was a toilet. My phone gave me the same message for about a day, but I put it under a reading lamp, battery out too, and let it sit for the night. When I turned it on in the morning it worked okay.

Phone wil not turn on

The best thing to do anytime the phone gets wet, is to immediately remove the battery. I dropped one into a pool. I took the battery out and let the thing dry for about a week. It worked fine until I got rid of it about a year and a half later. The key is to removing the battery. The moisture and power together are the lethal combination.

Wet cell phone

You should try to borrow a battery or simply take yours out and plug in the charger to see if it will turn on.

Dropped in Toilet

See if it will turn on when you remove battery and plug it into your charger. If it will you could recover the numbers with the Motorola software or the Carrier could.
