Here is the procedure to take out all moisture trapped in the phone: Dry the phone, battery, any accessory, etc. with cloth and wrap each piece, phone and accessories, in newspaper. Place a few handfuls of rice into a plastic bag and then place the wrapped phone in the bag with rice. The newspaper wrapping avoids direct contact of rice with your phone because the dust from the rice can get into the small areas of the phone. The newspaper and rice will absorb moisture. Leave it there (with the bag open) at least 24 hrs.

Well, I was on the toilet (duh) and my phone slipped out of my huge sweatshirt pocket into the toilet. It was only in there for about .5-1 second because of how fast I realized what happened. However, I...

Wait at least 48 hours to turn it on. This gives enough time for most moisture to evaporate. If it has a removable battery cover and battery take all those out to speed up the drying. Also, remove the sim card before you turn it on. If the phone is damaged, the sim card may still be usable and you can preserve your data.

To Whom it May concern. my Samsung Intensity

If this just happened today the 12th - let it dry out for 4 days - you can try it anytime before that - but even if the phone comes on and works I would let it dry for 4 days. Get insurance right away too. Some phones once wet - have a tag inside the phone that alerts the company it has been wet. Some company's sell insurance that will cover lost or stolen phones but not damaged by water so be cautious when dealing with this problem.

My LG Neon got wet is now really messed up

I had the same problem and fixed it rather easily, the problem is that the componants are wet and need to be dried, if you send it away your warrenty will be flaud as it is wet and all they will do to fix it is pull it apart and put it in a drying machine so i advise you to wrap it in a towel and place it somewhere warm like a hot water cubboard or directly in the sun, it needs to completly dry. you could try wrapping it in a towel and use a hairdryer on a low setting to dry out the componants, remeber to stop and let it air evey now and then or you will get condensation on your screen, hope this helps

Moisture from hot tub got under the touch screen of my cell phone, and now it's not responsive to touch. Is there anything I can do?

When most cell phones get wet or aquire moisture the circuit boards on the inside rust as they dry out so if the phone is insured I woudl just suggest replacing it because the rust on the inside will continue to affect the phone even after it is dried out. Depending on who your carrier is you maybe able to have a tech open up the phone and clean the circuit board with some solution. This is not something you should attempt your self because it would void any warrenity remaining on your phone. If you have a warrenity and you phone is not visibly wet and all your indicator on your phone are still negative for water damage (stickers located on or around your battery to show that your phone has water or moisture damage) then just take it in for a replacement but, leave out the part about moisture just tell them the touch screen is not responding

Need to dry out my motorola W755

The general solution is time consuming. When my son got his wet, we popped the back cover, took the battery out, and buried the phone in a bowl of rice. The rice will leech the water out of the phone.

N70&samsung s3500 got wet due to water

you need to keep the battery and phone in a good sun light to dry out the water inside the circuits. Don't switch on the phone until both are well dried.

Verizion LGvx5400 fell in toilet

  The main effect of water is on the motherboard of the cellphone.
In case, it has not affected the working of cellphone/motherboard inside that, you can keep the cell in dry temperature for  few hours, you can use a dryer or you can open the lcd/screen panel and you can also use soft cotton to keep it dry.
Thanks for using Fixya.
