Not trying to be smart, but you might as well go out and buy another one. I had just bought a new samsung phone ($299.00) and it stopped charging after only 3 mths and therefore would not power on at all. The local wireless store would not do anything because it was 2 mths old and I got very poor customer service from Samsung. Good Luck

electronics dont like water. Only option you have is to get the phone replaced or repaired at the shop where you bought it.

I dropped my phone in the bathtub and the only thing that's wrong now is there is water vapor in my front camera, how do I fix this?


Hello Faith, I don't know if this works for cell phones, but I have heard that you can dry out a wet hearing aid by putting it in the refrigerator for a day or two.

What To Do if I Drop My Cell Phone in Water?


The small convenient size of cell phones unfortunately also makes these electronics accident-prone, especially when it comes to water. If you drop your cell phone in water it is often possible to salvage it. If you drop your cell phone in water, you may have only seconds to retrieve it, so you need to act fast even if it means retrieving it from the toilet!

The next thing to do if you drop your cell phone in water is to remove the battery immediately without even hesitating to turn off the power. Dry the batter with a towel and set aside to dry thoroughly. The battery itself may or may not work again, fortunately batteries can be replaced fairly inexpensively. Even if the battery does work, it is a good idea to get a new one.

After you have removed the battery, dry off the cell phone with an absorbent towel as best as you can. Use cotton swabs to soak up water in crevices and on any fragile, exposed circuits. It is also helpful to disassemble it if you can and let all the parts dry separately. Just be sure that you know how to put it back together. If it is a flip or sliding cell phone, leave it open.

If you drop your cell phone in a beverage or in salt water, rinse the phone off with fresh water once you have removed the battery. Once you drop the phone in water, the additional rinsing will not do further damage, however, minerals or other materials will.

If you drop your cell phone in liquid that isn’t pure water, you may want to try giving it an alcohol bath. The alcohol will displace minerals and microscopic substances as well as aiding in the evaporation of the fluid. If it is available, you should use an alcohol concentration of 95% rather than rubbing alcohol that usually contains only 70%.

Once your phone is clean, leave it in a warm dry area or near an air conditioner for three days before you attempt to replace the battery and turn it on. This is very important, because although you may think that you have thoroughly dried it, the slightest moisture can react with the battery and cause it to short circuit. If droped your cell phone in water, and want to save it, resist the temptation of turning it on to see if it is working until you have waited at least 72 hours.

Dropped the cell phone or mobile in water


Dropped the cell phone in water
If you would have accidently dropped your cell phone in water or it fell in water you can try fixing it be these below tips
1. Remove the battery of the mobile and try drying it with a hair dryer
2. Put the cell phone in a raw rice container for a day, the rice will soak the moisture and the mobile will become dry from inside
3. After that put the battery back on and try switching, there are more chances now that it will work
4. Never try to instantly switch on the cell phone after taking it out from water you should follow the above steps, switching it on instantly can lead to short circuit in mobile and the cell software can get damaged
5. You can also put the phone in light sunlight (not in very hot direct sunlight) after removing the battery do not put the battery in sunlight though
6. Also make sure you keep the SIM card out of the mobile

By taking these steps you can make a fair attempt to save your mobile from dying.

Water Damage on my LG Rumour


You can always try taking it apart carefully and using Isopropyl Alcohol and a cotton swab to clean the button and connection. Let it completely dry and re-assemble.
It works for game controllers dropped in the toilet and TV Remotes dropped in the bathtub.
Besides, new Rumors™ are running upwards of $175, so you may as well try to fix it before you throw in the towel.
