Dropped my phone in water


Take as much of the outside casing apart as you can and remove battery if possible straight away then leave submerged in a bowl of rice overnight. Sounds silly but it works. Hope this helps.

My android fell into a puddle of water and now is not functionining. Blue light on in right corner


Your phone is - sadly to say - probably dead.
With older phones, one can take out the battery and leave them to dry. In some cases the phone will function again. Sadly, with the newer phones, the electronics are so sensitive that water almost always will ruin the phone.
But, you can always leave it to dry (with the battery taken out!), and if you are very lucky, your phone will function again.

My HTC Aria phone fell into my coffee cup. I have taken the phone apart to dry off, but there is a medium size puddle of coffee located behind the front glass that is out of my reach. Any way to get that...


One solution to try is putting the phone in a Ziploc bag along with some silica gel which absorbs moisture. It can be found for cheap online through many retailers http://www.silicagelpackets.com/silica-gel-packets is one of many options.

Other than that you can try leaving out in the sun or under a lamp and hope it dries out but without taking off the screen you don't have a whole lot of options unfortunately.

Dropped phone in toliet. touch screen wont light up and wont work.


I do this all the time, grrr. This phone is toast most likely. Take out the sim card and memory card to prevent them from corroding. The phone may dry out and return "some" functionality, but it probably won't work correctly again.

Dropped Pantech Matrix in water


it's probably going to be really expensive to repair it if there is major damage. but i got in the pool with my matrix in my pocket and i dried it out and it wont turn on with the battery in it(it's bad i know) but if i take it out and plug it up it works fine but i cannot call, or text. it wont connect to a network. i dont know whether or not i should invest in a battery which isn't that pricey at all or just get a new phone. i'm just not sure if a new battery will fix the problem.

I dropped my phone in the toliet


Try undoing the whole phone and take out the battery to dry out in the sun.
I put my daughters thru the washing machine and it came back on. Its worth a try.

Dropped in toliet!


Turn it off (If it hasn't shut off already). Take the battery out. Let it sit for at least 4 hours in a warm area (about 85 F will do). The moisture needs to completely evaporate from all parts inside the phone. When the phone is dry and has had time in that warm environment to evaporate, you can put your battery back into the phone and turn it on. Depending on the level of damage done, it will either work fine, work but have glitches here and there, work on some things but not others, or not work at all. If the phone fails to turn on, take it to your local retailer and ask them to test it for functionality, and if possible, to reprogram the phone (re-install its firmware). If none of these things help, you'll have to replace your phone.
