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

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

My LG Keybo phone will freeze up when i receive a text message about 5 months ago i dropped it in water i took it out as soon as it fell in i immediately took the battery out and dried it with a hair dryer...


Alot of the LG phones have had this problem. My Keybo has the same problem and it isn't because you dropped it in water. Take it to the service place. They may need to replace it or tell you otherwise. Good Luck!

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.

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.
