I dropped my phone in a pool a week ago. I took it to Cingular and they said it was dead. One week later I tried the power button and it powered up fine with all my info still there. It worked all day until I shut it off and now it will not turn back on. HELP
Try this at your own risk: open the phone up and get a can of compressed air and clean the phone out. have a look on the battery connectior bit if the connectors are rusted, and if they are then you just need to scrape the rust off them. the battery might have also been rusted by now, so check the connectors on that aswell. hope this helps.

The best thing to do anytime the phone gets wet, is to immediately remove the battery. I dropped one into a pool. I took the battery out and let the thing dry for about a week. It worked fine until I got rid of it about a year and a half later. The key is to removing the battery. The moisture and power together are the lethal combination.
Advise. If this is your 3rd RAZR V3, you must encourage Cingular (Now is the new AT&T) to replace your whole unit with another model. A friend of mine exchange his phone 4 times, until Cingular replace it. Motorola had too many problems with RAZR phones and that's why they launch quickly the SLVR L7.
They still producing the RAZR, because users love the style and shape of the phone, but reality is that Motorola had several heavy issues with RAZR (Bluetooth, batt, microphone, etc.)
If you're paying for an insurance on your unit, encourage them to replace it.
