and then it shuts off after being stuck there for a couple minutes.  can anyone help me? I know it isn't the battery since we have like 4 of them and have tried it with all and they all give the same message

Re: plz help with chocolate phone

This happened to me too. except i dropped my phone in he toilet. and mine doesn't turn off after a couple minutes. it's just stuck there. i think we are pretty much screwed. are you insured with verizon? if you are you can get a new phone for free but you have to pay 50 bucks for the processing fee or something.

Water fell on my touch screen samsung F480i.and the screen doesnt work now.. any solutions plz

1) turn the phone off immediately (remove the battery if possible)
2) put it in a bag of rice and leave it there for a day or 2 (rice absorbs moisture)
3) remove the phone and turn it on
note: DO NOT use a hair dryer...this will push moisture into unreachable places

Phone got wet but pulled battery..working at the time but the button wouldn't work used the hair dryer to dry but after I finished the chocolate failed to turn on

The water or liquid that got into your phone might have damaged one or two things in your phone.
I think the problem you are experiencing has to do with the power.You would have to get a phone screwdriver to open your phone and dry it properly,if it doesn't work after that then you would have to replace the power point or flash the phone so it could work perfectly.

Got water damage and wont turn on

I dropped my phone in the toilet and surprisingly it still works. First I took the battery off and dried the phone and battery as much as I could. Then I took my blow dryer and a towel where I folded the towel in half and positioned the phone and the blow dryer under the towel and left it going for about an hour. The next day I took the phone and sat it in the sun until the inside moisture was gone. Then I charged it my phone has been working fine ever since and that was nearly two months ago.

There may still be some traces of water inside. Blow it with a hair dryer for sometime without heat. Only when the phone is totally dry that you shud use it.

After water damage my touch screen for my quickfire wont work!

Put it in a ziplock bag of uncooked rice for several weeks. And make sure the battery is out of it. So put in the battery and phone but they should be apart.

Dropped LG Chocolate 8550 in the tiolet. How do I fix it?

You can keep it inside the Refrigerator for 30, in the side rack where the biscuits and medicines can be kept.Most of the misture will be removed and the unit can be restored.This should be done within one hour of the incident, that is before any oxidation reaction takes place with the parts of the unit.If it is late this will be a trial.

Dropped phone in water

no much. probably it already has a short internal.
you can open the pone and try to use a hair dryer to dry out the phone, but I don't think that is going help.
