I also got my phone wet. Mine fell in a pool and I was really mad. I saw something on youtube and I thought I will give it a try. Getting a bunch of dry un cooked rice and pouring it into a container. Then take your battery out and (if you have one) take out the sim card. Then let it stay in the rice for about 3 days. Worked for me maybe it will work for you. The rice works because since it's dry it soaks up all water. Hope this works for you!

Try removing the battery, using a blow dryer to air everything out in battery compartment. If there are any tiny screws or way to open up the phone itself, open it up, and blow everything inside there too.

Let it dry out completely and then see if it will work again. My guess is no, because once the circuits get wet, they are pretty much damaged and irrepairable.

Hope this helps at least some. Good luck!

I went swimming without knowing that my cellphone is in my pocket.Now it doesn't turn on anymore.It's already've been dry for 2 days.


If you had not removed the battery as soon as the cell phone got wet and it has been in the cell phone as it was drying then most likely the cell phone is beyond repair.

Hello,

There is still little hope, you will need to power off the phone, remove the battery and sim card, put them in a secure place, turn the phone over, pull the front casing to remove it, get a torx 6 screw driver, unscrew all the screws on the front panel and dry the panel, most especially where the end key is, there is still little water or the part is still wet, that is why it is not contacting, let it dry with a little mid temperature, after this as been done, screw back all the screws and couple back your phone.

That should fix the problem, if you can not carry out all this, it is better you give it to someone that knows about phone to help or a phone repairer.

Take care.

That kind of submersion is usually a lethal thing, plus turning it on while still wet could deliver a nice killing blow, just to make sure it's dead... you passed current through conductive water spread inside the electronics. Don't mean to discourage you, there's always a chance, and you could take it for a shop to give you the final verdict, but if you told them what it went through there's a chance that they won't even bother opening it up. Sorry, at least life aint boring? ;[
