You will need to remove back cover, battery and place everything into dry well ventilated place for at least 24 hours. Another way you hair fan for at least 30 minutes but very gently to avoid overheating and melting. You dont need to do it with battery just the phone. Unfortunately water damaged phones in most cases not covered by warranty. There is an indicator on back cover (under the battery) it should be pink/red now due to water damage.
Hope that helps
Good Luck

Take the battery out immediately, dry everything that you can with a towel. Let it stand for a few days to dry out inside before trying to turn it back on or you will fry it out. T mobile will not do anything to help you...

My samsung rant wont charge. it charged yesterday but today after plugging it into the charger the Samsung name lights up and then it says "low battery please charge" but it wont charge, i did drop it in...


Phone not charging.
Hello, when a phone does not charge, it means that the phone charger or the port at which the charger is inserted in the phone is faulty.

Might be due to dust or dirt. You can Clean charging port on the phone with a brush and alcohol to remove dirt.

After cleaning it,if still not charging, you can test charger with another phone to be sure if the charger is working. And if charger works with another phone,that means the charging port on the phone is faulty and will need to replaced.

Take care.

The light on my ipod touch dose not turn on?


hold the sleep button for about 5-6 seconds and restart it. Try that a few times, and then if that does not work, connect it to the computer and hit the 'restore' button and see if it will restore the light. Try to charge it also, sometimes that will help.

Water damage and it will not work and there is the red button.


Yep.
I dropped my Blackberry in the toilet completely. It would not charge or turn on for 1 day.
But it worked after that.
You need to let it dry out. Give it a day or two.
You can also try taking out all the pieces and using a hair dryer.
If it doesn't work, you can always buy yourself one of those prepaid phones and just use your sim card with it until you can afford a new phone.
Good luck.

I dropped my phone in the toilet


When something like this happens, you need to take the battery out and let it dry for a few DAYS. Unfortunately you started it charging - the battery was probably not dry inside and you likely shorted it out. Try using someone else's battery to make sure it's not the phone, if the phone turns on you may just need to purchase a new battery. If even with a foreign batter the phone still doesn't work you'll likely have to buy a new phone. Sorry!

Water damage


it can be fix but i am thinking thta if you took to long for it to be fix but nevertheless take the phone to a mobile service center and have them service the phone to see if they can fix the issue.
