Blow into it with your hairdryer without heat. Do it for a minute or so many times to remove water traces from the insides. Do not put the heat on else it may get toasted.

Dropped phone in pool. Immediatly dried it out using the rice method( took battery out). 24 hours later put battery back in to see if phone worked and the "flash" light came on. Phone wouldnt turn on.


If you think you can do it taking the whole phone apart worked for someone i know. don't know if it's to late since you powered it up already. Probably worth a shot though.

I recently jumped into a pool with my cell phone in my pocket (SAMSUNG Reality). I realized it 10 minues or so after. Dried the phone. A day later, the phone will turn on when connected to charger...


When phone gets wet NEVER try to turn it on. Take battery out right away shake water off and put both in bowl of rice for at least 24 hrs. If your not home or don't have rice right away take battery out and get some. We have a bowl of rice on the counter all summer long for those who jump in the pool with phone in their pocket. I have washed them dropped them in the toilet my son jumped in pool with his phone, put it rice for 24 hrs and we were up and running with the exception of the one in the pool, that one cost me new battery on Ebay ($4.95) but phone worked fine, didn't even lose contacts or pictures. But the key is to NOT try to turn it on after its been wet. Water and batteries don't mix.

LG Dare dropped in Pool


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.

Nokia n 73 droped in water for 3 seconds


This happened to me one fine summers eve in a pool in Los Angeles, but i'll spare you those details ;)

There is indeed hope! Make sure you dont put the batter back into it for a few days, take some dry rice and immerse the phone into it, the rice will **** any of the excess moisture out from the phone. DO NOT douse it in rubbing alcohol, and do not "bake" it in an oven or in too hot of sun, this will deform the internal electronics.. Hope this helps! :)

When i got in the pool my phone got wet................


Sir, you can put it in rice if you want it but the best solution is to open up the phone both sides and clean it or dry it. If you try to charge it or turn it on you will toast it. Hope this would help.

Wet phone has black screen


You took all the right steps, including the rice. Unfortunately, even the rice method doesn't always catch the moisture before it does it's damage. The next step is to take the phone back to the store where you purchased it and have them see if it is salvageable. The other thing to check is where you stand with your contract. You may be able to replace the phone by extending your contract. good luck.
