My cell phone was in water for about 15 seconds.

I dried the phone and put the battery back in and now it constantly vibrates, is this normal or is the phone damaged?

Tip

If your cell phone gets into water...


Two differents situations can occur when you drop your cell phone in water: depends if it is salt water (beach) or fresh water (rain, etc). I use to repair cell phones for 6 years, and this is my best recommendation.
If the phone gets into fresh water, just remove the battery immediately, because the battery normally creates a short circuit inside the phone, then try without battery and if you can remove part of the housing, do it and put a small fan or a hair blower ( not too hot) aside the phone at least for 15 minutes continue, moving around constantly. This has to be done immediately, because the minerals in some types of water can cause bridges between the IC (integrated circuits), and cause malfunctions.
If the phone gets into salt water, and this include if you drop it into the toilet while urinating (remember, the urine if full in chemicals, most of them are salts), although it sounds crazy, just immediately remove the battery, and give a fresh water wash, I mean, try to wash all the salt from the phone, and then start doing the process to dry it as described before. 
Two tips more: It is probably that your battery will damage permanently, and nothing can be done. And, this not guarantee that the phone will work, because it depends on how long it was soaked. In a next opportunity, I can give you a little higher difficult level to do in order to completely recover your phone from future problems due to water damage.

My d900i fall in water, after draying it vibrates when insert the battery


When you say you have dried it you must do more than just dry the outside. I hope you managed to dry it quickly. What you need to do is put it in something that will take out all the moisture. I have put mine in a plastic tub with some CLEAN cat litter, it takes out the moisture very well. I have done it twice and it worked the first time but not on the second. Good luck but no guarantees.

I have a samsung SCH-U520 and I dropped it in water


If your device gets covered in water, act fast and rationally, and you may be able to save your device.

1. DO NOT TRY TO TURN IT ON
2. Pull out the battery.
3. Please your device and battery into a bowl of uncooked rice to absorb any moisture.
4. Please it in a warm, dry place where it can receive direct sunlight.
5. Be patient. It is recommended that you leave it in there for at least 48 hours.
6. After 48 hours, put the battery back in and power on.

Good...Vibrations?


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.

Motorola Razor Water damage??


have talked with others who tried blow drying & then putting in freezer for few hours with phone & battery separate & yes the red normal after getting H2O damage shows the company out of warranty if you exchange phone through the warranty will be billed I think its like 110 or165 for At&t but if you call talk with them & tell them that phone stopped working screen blanked out & NO the red dot not there that it is white & ship your phone back when they receive it you will then be billed for it BUT when you call back in repeat OVER & OVER that when you sent it in that it was white & not your fault that warranty screwed up most of the time if you complain long enough you will get the charge removed :-) (work for cell company)
