Question about Nokia 1661 Cell Phone
Submerged in 3 mts seawater for 20 mins. Battery is ok. When battery is slotted torch works, but nothing else.
Put it in a bowl of rice and stick it in the hotpress!
Doubt it will work since it was submerged for so long but worth the try!

SOURCE: water damage
It might be to late, but doesn't hurt to try, keep battery / sim card out, and put the phone in a freezer, if you don't have a freezer place it next to an air vent, wait over night (10 hours at least) And you should see water dripping out, warm it in your hands for about 20 seconds, dry it out with any towel / cloth place the sim card than battery in, if it doesn't turn on contact your phone company from a land-line about your insurance

SOURCE: I dropped my phone in water
Well thats not good!!!
Unfortunately you might not have any luck with fixing the phone due to water damage. The only way to really prevent the damage is if you take apart the phone ASAP due to all the moisture that gets in the phone and destroys the parts. Also, turning it on with moisture in it might have fried it. Sorry to say but you might want to start looking for a replacement.
But here is a guide to replace the screen on the phone, but it still tells you how to take it apart.
Hope this helps ya out! Cell phone damage is a horrible thing today with how providers like to rip us off.
Don't forget to rate :)

This happened to me one fine summers eve in a pool in Los Angeles, but i'll spare you those details ;)
There is indeed hope! Make sure you dont put the batter back into it for a few days, take some dry rice and immerse the phone into it, the rice will **** any of the excess moisture out from the phone. DO NOT douse it in rubbing alcohol, and do not "bake" it in an oven or in too hot of sun, this will deform the internal electronics.. Hope this helps! :)
