Went into hot tub with g1 for like 2 secs then went out. now it turns on until it says g1 but it stays there then faids away


you could 'dry out' older phones when they got wet years ago, but these new smartphones have so many components that when wet, they usually ruined. If you have phone insurance use it, otherwise happy shopping. Best of luck

G1 got little wet but it dried out and screen shows all but now triangle and cant get touchscreen to work....what do i do?


If it got wet it might still be wet from the inside and that is why your touch screen wont work, You would need to open it and clean it from inside. Or it could have a bad digitizer and that is a second reason why the touch screen wouldnt work. You can try doing a hard reset if you says it just shows a triangle on the screen.

Turn the G1 off. If it’s frozen on, take the battery out and put it back in the unit.Hold the Home and Power keys down at same time for about 25 seconds. You will see a yellow triangle screen with exclamation point in the middle
Now to wipe the device clean:
Press Alt+L. Press Alt+W for a factory reset.
Press the Home and Back keys again for about 25 seconds.
The device should then reset again and the hard reset is complete.

Wet G1 Tmobile htc fell in water a while ago


Don't turn it on until it's dry again.
Maybe it could work again.
If not, you'll need to take to a cell phone fix place.

Wet g1


Chances are you'll have to buy a new one but there a couple of things you can do to avoid that.

1st make sure you do NOT plug the phone in. That's the quickest way to kill it for sure.

2nd remove the battery, SIM card and memory card then place phone in a bowl of uncooked white rice up to 24 hours. (I've never tried this myself but have been told it works pretty well)

Last is to put it back together and give it a try. If it's still not working, it's time to buy an new one.

Goodluck!
