Dang, that is not good the keypad is waterdamaged for good. Take it into a store and have them run a diagnostic on the phone itself. As far as the incoming calls you should still be able to receive those... that is weird actually I would call in for that. Hope that helps :)

My iphone will not read the sim card. The card works fine in another phone. My phone was submerged in a tub of greasy water and i am tryinng to restore it now.

Ben, Could you try dry it first? Do not turn on.
As you said that your card is not read by iphone, i can see that you already turn it on after it submerged in greasy water. I hope it doesn't short circuit yet. Use hair dryer, dry your iphone through the usb connection hole, leave for awhile, make sure it dry, then try again. Hope this will help. For future, if phone dropped in water, first thing to do is take off battery, or turn of completely then dry it before checking it still work or not.Thanks for reading.

My samsung sph m350 took a swim in the hot the back dry, but there is still water in the lcd part how do i take it apart to dry it? phone is not working. thanks.

i personally wouldn't risk further damage by taking it apart to try and dry it off. one trick i use and it may seem silly but does work is to soak it in uncooked rice for a few hours the rice will pull out the water after some time and can help the device work. If the device had been submerged or soaked for any substantial amount of time with the battery in it, it may be a lost cause fyi.

My phone won't turn on !!!!

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

My cell phone took a quick dip in the hot tub.

You did the correct thing when you dropped it, remove the battery and lay out to dry COMPLETELY...having done so for several days then you did the best you could.

I'm sorry to say that your phone is ruined tho, the problem probably exist between the battery contacts and the circuit board. You will be stuck having to throw it out.

Sorry there is no better solution, thank you for stopping by Fixya!

No power to starter

Depending on how long it's been since it's been submerged, I'm thinking wiring is still wet. I had a car get flooded to the floorboards and it took drying out for three weeks before it would start. I used to take a hair dryer to my old Mustang....I'd even take the distributor cap off and blow it in there. Another option is to open the hood in the bright sun and let the sun dry things out for a few hours. It might take more than one I said, it took 3 weeks before my car would start again.

Hi, I'm a cell phone techician and I see this everyday. If this happened within 24 hours DO NOT put the battery on the phone, take it out immediatly. Samsung for some reason can withstand liquid (some) unlike Nokia and Motorola. If it happened something like two weeks ago or it was a salt water pool then forget about it because it will have to see someone like me and I'm in Canada. But if it was relativley recent damage in a standard chlorinated pool I recommend putting it in a long sock and spin it over your head as fast as you can this procedure will force the water out. Don't let go or you'll injure yourself or innocent bystanders. This is very important...Hold it very tightly.
After 30 seconds of spinning place phone in hot sun for a few hours. Try the battery the next day. Really though you should remove the four screws that hold the back, take it totally apart and spray canned air into it.
