Re: i dropped my phone in water but icked it up right
Remove the battery and immerse both the phone and the battery in dry uncooked rice for three days. This is the only cheap way to dry everything out. After the three days put the battery back in the phone and it should be OK
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The first thing you should do is remove your betta from its current tank. You will want to set up a separate temporary container to house your betta while you clean his regular tank. Be sure to use clean water that has been treated with water conditioner. If a separate tank is not available, you will want to do a full water change on the tank along with a thorough cleaning. Again, be sure to add the appropriate amount of water conditioner before adding your betta back to the tank.
Ick thrives in cold water, so after you have a clean tank setup, you will want to install a tank heater to warm the temperature gradually to 82 degrees. Be sure to use the proper size heater for your tank size. Also, make sure the heater has a cut off switch or something to keep the temperature from going over 82 degrees. You don't want to cook your fish!
Now you are ready to treat the ick. You will need an antiparasitic medication. Try Kordon Rid Ich Plus you can pick it up at most pet stores. If they do not carry it, ask for another antiparasitic appropriate for betta fish. Use according to package directions.
Continue treatment according to directions.
How to keep ick away:
Continue using heater to keep water at 82 degrees
Do frequent water changes with water conditioner added to clean water
Use aquarium salt: it is inexpensive and easy to use. Purchase from pet store and follow package directions for use.
Hi, when ever a phone drops inside the water, first remove the battery cause the battery life might be damaged,and also in that process the phone is still working because the battery is still inside the phone.
You will need to service the phone for the phone to be free from water,cause if the water dries inside the phone it will damage an IC or a chip inside the phone and it might cause more damage to the phone.
After, disassembling the phone is the next step. Get a phone screw and unscrew the phone from the back by removing the battery and you will see some screws, unscrew possible screws and open the phone.
Get a methylated spirit and a small brush, remove the board of the phone and deep the brush inside the methylated spirit,brush gently on the board of the phone. After brushing, get a dryer to dry up the board of the phone and live it for a while to dry.
After some minutes,assemble the phone back and fix in the battery. Make sure during the processyou are charging the battery of the phone.
I guess that's all you need.
Note: if the battery has stayed too too long on the phone and am sorry after the water splash, it might not come on after this all process, that means you will have to flash the phone because the battery might have damaged the memory of the board of the phone and will not power up the phone because the phone is too weak to power.
Flashing of the phone will restore back the phone memory.

I had the same problem and fixed it rather easily, the problem is that the componants are wet and need to be dried, if you send it away your warrenty will be flaud as it is wet and all they will do to fix it is pull it apart and put it in a drying machine so i advise you to wrap it in a towel and place it somewhere warm like a hot water cubboard or directly in the sun, it needs to completly dry. you could try wrapping it in a towel and use a hairdryer on a low setting to dry out the componants, remeber to stop and let it air evey now and then or you will get condensation on your screen, hope this helps
Turn off the phone imediatly if its still on. open up the phone by taking off the covers and unscrewing them. bring a hair dryer and dry the board then when its completely dry, use a toothbrush to brush any resedue off of the board. then spray it with any type of alcohol product and brush it again with the toothbrush. cover the phone and turn it on.
Sounds like it is done for, yes. I know a way to save electronics if they are dumped in water, but it requires to fill it with water replacing fluids. Putting it in pure alcohol right away (remove battery first) might save it, as ir should replace the water and then evaporate completey when you take it out.
Some contacts have probably corroded in your phone, so unless you are (or know) a repairman of electronics you'll probably need a new phone. :-/
