Dropped it in water about a month ago. got it shut off pretty fast opened up the case let dry for 2 days , worked when turned on EXCEPT keyboard letters somtimes dont work, battery says full charge then...
If you are above average in elctronics abilities, you know electricity and water don't mix well. You dropped your phone in the water, you did all the right things and you got another month from your phone. Since that time, the impurities in the water that were left behind when the water dried out have continued to errode the contacts and short out the traces not to mention the normal 'wear and tear' YOU put on the phone and your phone is showing its accelerated age.
I just got a LG Rumor, it was under $30.00 new on an existing account or free if I opened a new account and they would give me two more free if I would simply activate them and add them to any account. Now - admitted, that was in MY market - not yours. I think if you want to play around with it to see how it works, you should look for parts - like a key board, etc. Take a stab at the repair. If you want/need a phone, spring for the $30.00 (per my example in my market) and have a good, reliable simple phone that will work for you when you want it to.
