Got submerged for 3 hrs

My phone was submerged for about 3 hrs and after i had let it dry out it all worked except for the speaker which means i dont have any ring tones and the other ppl can hear me but i cant hear them, i was wondering if its worth getting the speaker replaced or if i may as well throw it away, thanks in advance.

Just have your speaker replaced. it is just a minor prob and it cost you lower than buying new unit.

A row of keys on my phone dont work

If your phone is damaged by water, be sure you dismantle the break away pieces and submerge them in a bowl of dry rice for at least 3 days. Rice can help extract and evaporate liquids in the surrounding air.

If your phone is damaged physically or was ever dropped, it's possible that a loose connection formed within the device. Considering liquid crystal displays are made of many individual touch sensors, if your "keys" are on the touch screen. That could be why it doesn't work. Verify if that portion of the touch screen works for anything else. If it does, install a new keyboard on your phone or reinstall the existing.

My droid 3 fell into the sink and got wet, it wasn't totally submerged it splashed into a dish that had some water in it, I put it in a bag of rice overnight and when I turned it on this a.m....

First thing is take out the battery and dry the battery with a towel or paper towel. Allow it to dry for a while and in the meantimelet you phone dry out. There is suppose to be a seal around the phones main board to keep out moisture so if it didn't get to wet it should be OK. After about 30 minutes the battery should be dry enough to put back in and then try to turn the phone on. In most cases it will work.

I got my phone wet while travelling abroad so I took out the battery etc and let them dry for a while. When I put them back in the phone seemed fine but the next morning the battery was completely broken,...

You cant try this...get a bowl of dry rice, put the phone in and cover it up, leave the phone in for 48 hrs. Dont touch it.
Sounds like there is remaining moisture. if this doesnt resolve the issue you will need a new phone

Camera wont work on my i phone

you can take the battery and the back off the device and place in completely submerged in a bag of white rice and leave it in there for 1 to 2 days this will help absorb the moisture, this should fix it if the water did not damage the circut boards if the water damaged the circut boards then the device is fried

I had got out the shower an water got in the screen its a black berry storm from verizon an i dont know what to do

Remove the back cover and battery. Shake any excess water out of unit. If you can dis-assemble then do it and let it air dry for a day or two. If you cannot dis-assemble it then try and use a hair dryer on it to completely dry it out. I have had a couple of cell phones that got submerged in water and once they were COMPLETELY dried out they worked again.

Sony Ericsson W960 Walkman was in water for 3 hrs

not every drying of a watered mobile works. As you have dried, go to service centre and give some reasons and make it serviced for free (dont reveal that it has been watered)

My wife's LG 8550 got wet and now won't power on

If the phone was still on while it got submerged, then you may be out of luck. Had it been off when it was submerged, using the rice trick might have worked. I would try removing the battery, and drying it out some more, but the damage may have already been done. Sorry!
