How long has your phone been in rice? 2 days? that is how long it is supposed to be in rice. you could try recharging the battery for how ever long it takes for it to load. but those phones are pretty delicate so unfortunately there is a good chance its gone.
Well i have had the same problem i to have droped my dare in the water and i took the battery out and put it under a fan for a day and i am still using mine and my battery was dead and i charged it but if your phone is not competely dry it will fry it so if that helps any.
I had mine washed. I dried it out but I have water marks under the screen. How can I get to the screen to wipe it off. When I tore it apart from the start I could nt get to the screen. I just seemed like it would come loose and I didnt want to break it.

hold down the red button until it turns on....if you bought it used check for the dot on the inside of the phone under the battery to show a red or dark color mark....this means it has water damage and the phone could be junk
The first step is to leave your phone alone! DO NOT try to turn your wet
cell phone on. Turning on your wet phone can permanently damage the
Next step is find a bag of rice, preferably white. White rice can
absorbs the most water. Ensure that you have enough bag of rice to
completely submerge your wet cell phone.
Now, place your wet cell phone into the bag of rice. Place the phone in
the middle of the bag so that you can no longer see your wet cell phone.
Next, place your bag of rice in a dry and warm place. I left my bag of
rice in the back of my car on a hot day.
Leave your bag of rice to sit for several hours. I left my bag of rice
in the back of my car for 8 hours. After time has elapsed, you can
finally pull out your cell phone and try to turn on your phone.
To get the *best* chance of having your phone (especially a touch screen) to work after being submerged in water, you need PATIENCE.
Generally, the phone doesnt die when it first goes in the water. It usually dies when the user tries to start the phone too soon, before it's dried out.
The fastest drying method i've seen is to get a small tupperware (sealable) container, and completely submerge the phone in white dry rice. Seal the container, separate the battery, take off the cover, and get as much exposure to the rice as you can.
The rice keeps the air dry inside the container, and will pull moisture out of the phone faster than air drying. Leave it there for at least 2 days. At least 2. Hope that helps!
PS - You will *probably* need a new battery, generally batteries are damaged by even a small amount of moisture. You might as well buy a new battery.
Just put it in a bag of rice for couple of weeks. The rice pulls all the water or wetness out of the phone. How do I know, Well I found a brand New Lg Dare phone in a puddle, put it in rice for 2 1/2 months. I took it out of the bag, put it together, turn it on. To my amazement it worked. Ran to store, bought a charger, and it has worked every day since.
You can buy a new water proof touch screen online and you will be able to go to a Verison store and have them install it for you. Also put the phone in a zip-lock bag full of uncooked rice for several weeks. Make sure the battery and phone are in the bag seperately.
i was talking on my phone yesterday and i just shut off. i plugged it in and it has a full battery but every time i turn it on it only gets to the "registering apps" it shuts off. what is wrong with my phone?
