pls dont turn on the mobil when it is droped in water. it may lead to the internal ciruit damag as the power flow from the battery ill easily pass through the liqued on the internal circuit..

pls remove the battery from the handset and sim also. if u have the hair drier pls blow it on the 10 cm distance with normal speed . so thst water ill vaporise and u can use the mobil again

Note: 1.air blow should be done on the circuit at low speed and 10 cm distance . ok

Remove the battery, your sim card, your memory card, and anything else that can be removed. Take off the back plate, and disassemble the unit as far as you are comfortable you can do without damaging it.

Clean the contacts of the battery and on the phone. Attempt to carefully dry as much as possible with a soft cloth

Allow it to AIR dry for at least 48 hours. Do not use a hair dryer, heat vent, or any other method. It must dry via evaporation in the ambient air.

After that, if the phone still doesn't work, try replacing the battery. I suggest you go to the store and try it in the store before you buy the battery ;)

If all that doesn't work, I'm afraid you phone has been permamently damaged. Water does that to cell phones y'know. You can try and send it to Sony Ericsson, however I believe their warranty has a clause where they say they aren't responsible for water damage.

Dropping you phone every now and then is very detrimental to your phone. What you are currently experiencing is a flex problem since you are using a flip up phone. You have to take the phone to a technician to refix the fllex for you.
