Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

Phone got wet

Fell in the sink for a split second. Fine for the first few minutes, then displayed a window that said it wouldn't charge (or something). I plugged it into a charger and it displayed a strange window: white with a bar running through the middle with an exclamation point in a circle. An hour later when I unplugged it, it looked like it was booting up, but then shut down because of zero battery charge.

Is it toast?

Re: phone got wet

Yes, try drying out your phone by taking the phone apart, especially under the keyboard pad.

Re: phone got wet

I would definately let it dry out fully. Take the battery out and take it apart as much as you can and place in front of a fan (probably overnight). If there was water in the phone when you plugged it in it could permanently damage the phone. Even though the outside is dry, there could still be some water inside. I once had a remote control in a swimming pool overnight and followed these instructions and it worked fine after a couple days of drying. Hope this helps!

The charge adapter maybe faulty.
If your cell phone is a few months old, then it would be still under warranty. Take it back to the place where you purchased it and have it repaired or replaced under warranty.

My droid 3 fell into the sink and got wet, it wasn't totally submerged it splashed into a dish that had some water in it, I put it in a bag of rice overnight and when I turned it on this a.m....

First thing is take out the battery and dry the battery with a towel or paper towel. Allow it to dry for a while and in the meantimelet you phone dry out. There is suppose to be a seal around the phones main board to keep out moisture so if it didn't get to wet it should be OK. After about 30 minutes the battery should be dry enough to put back in and then try to turn the phone on. In most cases it will work.

Phone just dies for a few minutes every so often--several times a day for the past ten days. Screen goes black and then there's a little white clock icon on the screen. A few minutes later it's fine...

Sidekick 2008 got wet

I dropped a phone in the toilet once, a T-mobile phone. it took a couple of days for it to dry out completely. Then I snapped it back together, and it was fine. Being that yours just got wet, and not immersed is different though, so you may want to take it into T-mobile and see if they can check it out for you because then you will know for sure what is going on. Good luck.
