I am not sure if this will help but here goes anyway. I assume you immediately removed the phone from the toilet when it fell in. Here is what I did in a similar circumstance. My wife once dropped her car keys and remote in the toilet while she was at work. Once she got home, I opened the unit up and using a hair dryer carefully dried off the printed circuit board. I then replaced the battery. The remote is still working today. Good luck! Whether this works out for you or not you should tell your Mom about it. Accidents do happen - my guess is she will understand.

New toilet (1 week). first problem, took 2-3 flushes for just a couple of sheets of toilet paper. now, toilet clogged.


Sounds like something fell into the hole while the toilet was removed - maybe a teddy-bear? Remove the toilet and use a snake.

I didnt drop it into the water..i think the vapors just got into the G1.is there anything i can do ?


try running a hair dryer over it (not directly, but waving it over the phone) or placing it over a heat vent. be sure to turn it off first. my wife dropped her iphone in the toilet, and we were able to save it using this method.

My g1 fell in the toilet and i just got a new one with my insurance yesterday cus the old one broke now this new one fell in the toilet i blowdried it for an hour but it still wont work please tell me some...


Stop putting the battery in and in fact take it out for a few days. You need silica gel packets or some other dessicant. Uncooked wric in a ziplock bag can also work but a stronger dessicant will work better.

Blow dryers are also bad as they can melt the glue on the circuit boards. So stop doing that.

G1 in the toilet


Let it dry for a longer period. As, if the water has gone into the screen area, draining the water is a real issue. If it still doesnt respond, get it to a service station before the condition worsens.

G1 wont turn on


The suggestions I have seen for this, (lots of people do have this problem) is take the phone back off pat dry the battery and SIM card and leave it somewhere warm. Don't use a hairdryer. If it sploshed in for literally five seconds you may be alright, longer and the LCD screen will be the problem. You may have to own up, but on ebay you can get phones for as little as £20, so you may be doing a paper round to save up. Next time, leave it on the floor of the bathroom!! Good luck

G1 TOUCHSCREEN


Hi there, You are lucky that it is on... try one thing.. put the fun under the sunlight for half an hour or may be 15 min if its too hot there and try it again...
if this will not work then try to open the phone if you can clean the top screen area and put it back (try at your own risk) and it will do..

Sidekick Lx droppd in toilet


Goto ebay and see what a replacement one would cost you.  If you don't have insurance on one with T-mobile your only option is to replace it at their prices.
Everyone who has a Sidekick should have insure because it is very expensive to replace them.  The deductible is the cheapest way to get them replaced.
Good Luck

L7 water damage


I dropped my phone in the toilet when it fell out of my back pocket. The best thing to do is dry it as well as possible and then leave it out to dry. I let my phone dry for approximately 2-4 weeks and now it's working again. I found this out after I went out and bought another phone. LRL from Texas.
