My LG cell phone was dropping into the toilet bowl, I picked it up and all got back to normal after I dried it up. However, the '0" button was not working and no response. Can someone help me?


It is likely an electrical short. You can try burying your phone in a bag of rice (dry, of course) to **** out any more moisture. I've also heard of people putting their phones in the freezer though I have not tried this myself

If this doesn't work there's not much you can do besides taking it in to the dealer. Say it was rained on or the button quit working by itself.. not that you dropped it in a toilet.. and you're likely to get off cheaper or even free

I droppe my phone in water for like 2 secons and it worked fine tonight but now it won't turn on..help?


If you dropped it in water, you should have immediately took out the battery and then left it to dry for several days in warm dry area preferably with a fan blowing on it. The damage unfortunately has already been done and the phone will need to be replaced.
Thank you,

take your sim card out and any memory chips. These can usually be salvaged. You might get lucky with the phone, but most likely, even taking it apart and letting it dry, it won't work correctly.

My phone fell in the toilet idk what to do!!


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.

I dropped my sidekick 2008 in the toilet


really the only thing to do in this case is to let it dry COMPLETELY before putting any power to it. if you let it dry completely now it may still work but if you tried it already and it failed i doubt it. try a new battery if it wont turn on. i dropped my nokia in the toilet and let it dry for 3 days then it worked; had a buddy spill his bottle of beer on my blackberry and after the defrost and over night it worked fine.... good luck

Dropped fone in toilet


Hi, You can purchase a spray called electric cleaner that cleans small electric components and dries very quickly. But you will have to open the phone and spray on the small circuit board inside. If it still doesn't come up after that then it might possibly be dead. Sorry and good luck Lolita
