If the phone is exposed to any form of liquid or moisture it will damage the phone's mother board, it causes malfunction on the phone. You can try to have a technician evaluate it for you, if the phone can still be repaired.

What To Do if I Drop My Cell Phone in Water?


The small convenient size of cell phones unfortunately also makes these electronics accident-prone, especially when it comes to water. If you drop your cell phone in water it is often possible to salvage it. If you drop your cell phone in water, you may have only seconds to retrieve it, so you need to act fast even if it means retrieving it from the toilet!

The next thing to do if you drop your cell phone in water is to remove the battery immediately without even hesitating to turn off the power. Dry the batter with a towel and set aside to dry thoroughly. The battery itself may or may not work again, fortunately batteries can be replaced fairly inexpensively. Even if the battery does work, it is a good idea to get a new one.

After you have removed the battery, dry off the cell phone with an absorbent towel as best as you can. Use cotton swabs to soak up water in crevices and on any fragile, exposed circuits. It is also helpful to disassemble it if you can and let all the parts dry separately. Just be sure that you know how to put it back together. If it is a flip or sliding cell phone, leave it open.

If you drop your cell phone in a beverage or in salt water, rinse the phone off with fresh water once you have removed the battery. Once you drop the phone in water, the additional rinsing will not do further damage, however, minerals or other materials will.

If you drop your cell phone in liquid that isn’t pure water, you may want to try giving it an alcohol bath. The alcohol will displace minerals and microscopic substances as well as aiding in the evaporation of the fluid. If it is available, you should use an alcohol concentration of 95% rather than rubbing alcohol that usually contains only 70%.

Once your phone is clean, leave it in a warm dry area or near an air conditioner for three days before you attempt to replace the battery and turn it on. This is very important, because although you may think that you have thoroughly dried it, the slightest moisture can react with the battery and cause it to short circuit. If droped your cell phone in water, and want to save it, resist the temptation of turning it on to see if it is working until you have waited at least 72 hours.

Uniden 6.0 phone got wet.


If the phone got wet it will probably not work anymore. You might try tossing it in a bag of rice to dry it out completely. But in most cases, dropping the phone in water will ruin it.

How can i take my lg prime phone aprt so i can let it dry because i dropped it in water


Hi,

Hi, when ever a phone drops inside the water, first remove the battery cause the battery life might be damaged,and also in that process the phone is still working because the battery is still inside the phone.

You will need to service the phone for the phone to be free from water,cause if the water dries inside the phone it will damage an IC or a chip inside the phone and it might cause more damage to the phone.
you can use the below link to know how to disassemble LG phones,just type the model of the phone on the search box.

lg-phones.org/lg-optimus-7-disassembly-guide.html


After, disassembling the phone is the next step.Get a methylated spirit and a small brush, remove the board of the phone and deep the brush inside the methylated spirit,brush gently on the board of the phone. After brushing, get a dryer to dry up the board of the phone and live it for a while to dry.

After some minutes,assemble the phone back and fix in the battery. Make sure during the process you are charging the battery of the phone.

I guess that's all you need.

Hope it helped.

Thanks for using fixya..

I dropped my phone and it could not on now


Due to hazard some phones are not working. If you dropped in water try with this steps.
  • Use cotton swabs to soak up water in crevices and on any fragile, exposed circuits. If you have dropped your cell phone in water, it is also helpful to disassemble it if you can and let all the parts dry separately.
  • If the phone will turn on, you can try to make a call to be sure it is working properly. If you put your water damaged cell phone back together and it won't turn on, it is likely that some water has gotten down inside the phone.
If dropped in floor, please bring it to service center for repair.

My cell phone fell into water bucket for five minutes


DO NOT USE HEAT. You will damage the tiny components of your phone. 
The best thing to do is that the moment you get water in your phone, disassemble it. Remove the battery as soon as possible. this is very important. Then, open the casing and seperate whatever you can, like the memory card, the back cover, the keypad etc. Shake out any water that you can from the openings. When you shake it you will most probably get some water out. 
Now, use a dry cloth to dry your phone. Dry as much as you can.

Next, take a bowl and fill it with dry, uncooked rice. Yes, rice. :) Put your unassembled cellphone in this bowl. All of its parts should be in the rice. Now leave this overnight atleast. If possible, leave it for 2 days.
Then, assemble your phone again. It should work fine now. Atleast mine did. :)
Hope it works for you too.

Plus, as you have already done the first part and dried it, just leave it open under a fan etc overnight and it will work fine.

Drop Samsung Upstage in water


wow, himan and masir really have no idea what they are talking about. clean it properly before inserting the battery? remove the battery and get it serviced? you 2 are idiots. the upstage battery can't be removed without disasembling the entire case and then desoldering the battery from the board. i bet you 2 are probably the same people that get complaints left and right when people call dell and get an outsourced call center...

Hi,

There is a good chance that the phone will work once dried...but make sure it is totally dry (try to absord all water ad give it a few days to dry out) before attempting to turn on. If you take it part and dry out the parts...even better.

Dropped my sonny ericsson W800I in the bath


A basic equation is : Water + Phone = Dead Phone Warm water and a phone is really bad news, the level of corrosion inside the phone after a warm bath is significant. You could try to disassemble the phone and clean it on the inside, but you should not get your hopes up. In many cases, repairing the phone (after water damage) is much more expensive than getting a brand new one.
