There may still be some traces of water inside. Blow it with a hair dryer for sometime without heat. Only when the phone is totally dry that you shud use it.

There is a cable inside the unit that has come loose, it could be very hard to get to. You will need to take the phone apart and that means having special tools.

No one can hear me talking

Electronics do not like liquids - especially those containing milk, sugar, salt etc.
Do NOT try to dry out with heat or a microwave.

You could try this for the handset:-
Remove the battery cover and disconnect the battery.
Let everything dry for at least three days with the battery cover off.
After everything is dry, reconnect the battery and replace the cover.
Do not reconnect the phone line to the base - as phone calls will interrupt the charging.
Recharge the battery for at least 15 to 20 hours without interruptions.

If the base got wet:-
Disconnect the AC adapter to cut off the power.
Disconnect the telephone cord.
Let everything dry for at least 3 days.
Reconnect (and cross your fingers).

It is a wise safety precaution to have a safety-cutout plug or switch to avoid electric shock (to you and your equipment).

My samsung impression dropped in water and touch screen broke

I also dropped my Samsung Impression in the toilet, I immediately took the phone took the protective case off, took the battery cover off, and took the battery and my SIM card out and towel dried it as best as I could. Then I sat it on the floor next to my fan and let it dry until I got to my grandparents a little while later and I put it in a bowl of rice, completely covered the phone and battery with rice and left it sit overnight in the rice and all of the next day, so far i've had it on about 20 minutes and have had no problems with it so far, another solution is to sit it in the sun, to further dry it out. Water damage will void warranties on your phone and battery and your provider will know instantly if the damage was water related when they take your battery cover off, there is a small square sticker that when dry and hasn't touched water should be white, but as soon as it comes into contact with water it turns red, there is also one of these stickers on the battery. My stickers were red and after sitting in the rice they look like they got lighter in color considerably, I don't know if that is really possible but appearance wise it looks that way. I hope this helps anyone who has had this problem. Good Luck!

After making sure that your unit is already completely dried, you can turn it on again. If it won't function normally, just post problem here then we will try to sort it out.

Dropped cell phone in water.

If it doesn't come back after it dries out, it is toast. The only way to get your contacts - is if before it went out - you saved them to the sim card - then they will still be on there, when you move the card to another phone.. Sim cards are like floppy discs...

And if you a cell company that doesn't use SIM Cards for cell services (Cricket, Verizon Wireless, Sprint, etc - No the phone has no recovery tooks for your contacts) verizon sells a backup service but if you didn't have it before it went down, it does you no good now.

well that means you have liquid damage and you have voided your warranty on your device. Your only option is to buy a new phone or take advantage of insurance if you have it!

Wet phone

Did you try taking out the battery and letting it dry. Depending on how wet it got, your battery may need to dry out or the phone is damaged. My friend dropped his in the shower, took 2 days for the battery to dry out and it was fine.
