I dropped my phone in the toilet. It was in a leather case and I grabbed it immediately, so it really didn't get too wet. I immediately removed the battery and dried it out. The next day I could see moisture under the screen. It dried out and has worked fine for a week. Last night the screen would not come on. I could dial out and receive calls but I couldn't see anything. It finally came back on. The alarm worked fine this morning. Then, the screen started to scramble. Now there is nothing on the screen, but calls can still be made and received fine.

They will not replace the phone as dropping it into the toilet is definitely not part of the proper handling. So what you can do to save the phone is to use your hairdryer on it without the heat so that you can dry it up completely. Then assemble it and with your fingers crossed, power it on. Initially if the phone does not come on then charge the battery and then power it on. read the following link

I don't really understand what is being asked here. Are you saying you were **** and dropped your phone in the toilet and it is now wet? The best thing to do is remove the battery right away. Get a big jar, fill it with rice. Put the phone and the battery in the rice filled jar. The rice will absorb all moisture quickly, hopefully saving the water-logged electronics. Keep the phone in the jar for 24 to 48 hours, let it really dry out. Try to put the battery in the phone and start it up. If NOTHING happens, maybe the battery is dead. Try charging it. If still NOTHING happens, I think that you may have water-logged your phone and it is beyond repair. Try using your home-owner's insurance, if you have it, and claim your phone was stolen. Maybe they will give you money to buy a new phone.
From page 224 in your manual: Avoid exposing your phone and accessories to rain or liquid spills. If your phone does get wet, immediately turn the power off and remove the battery.

yes in some cases. but since you switch on your phone without completely drying it out, some problems may arise... like, auto-shut off, no signal, no ringtone, not chraging and even worse, it might die... in cases like wet phones.. it should be dried out completely to avoid shortages on the electronic components. but anyway... try cleaning it with laquer thinner for a minute or two... this will remove the moist deposits that might have developed on the ic's..
no the same thing is happening with my sister's phone. she dropped her's in a puddle and a toilet and now it wont charge and her screen turned red/orange. you can try airing your phone out but that may not work. the env is a horrible phone. i had four or five of them, get a different phone as soona as you can!!
