Usually no. Cell phones are very very sensitive to water. The electrical components inside are so small that they start to corrode and breakdown within a matter of hours once you get it wet. If it just got wet, do NOT turn it on. Take as much of it apart as you can and cover it with dry rice and put a fan on it for several days. This will dramatically help your chances of saving it. If its just the battery area you can check the contacts to see if they are corroded. Pop out the battery and check the metal prongs on the phone and the copper plates on the battery. If they are tainted take a pencil eraser or very fine sandpaper and gently rub until they are shinny. I also recommend the rice process as well. Put it back together and see what happens. I have successfully saved a phone that was completely submerged before but I had to completely take it apart and unfortunately it takes very small tools.

Display not working, mostly white screen, sometimes colored snow, or partial display. on 1 ocasion upside down mirror image

Important disclaimer ... I am not a technical expert. But, I do have this phone. And, I have this same problem. My first thought was that the phone got wet but I now think it is a software problem. Either way, I'm just trying to stretch out the phone use until my contract is up so I don't have to pay for a replacement. Here is what works temporarily for me ... take out the battery for a minute or so, when turning the phone on, hold the power button for about a minute. This seems to reset the phone. Sometimes I need to repeat 3 or 4 times for it to work. The fix only works long enough to retrieve text messages and send a few and check missed calls. Next time I go to use it, I have to do it again. Frustrating but I think I can make due for 2 more months.

Blackberry curve got slightly wet, now cant turn on


Problem was when you got it wet, you did not let it dry long enough. Reason I say this is because when you tried to operate the phone again it shorted out.

Typically it takes about 48 hours to dry completely. The best way is to separate the battery and phone, put them in a bowl of rice and close it up for 48 hours. The dry rice will draw out every bit of moisture.

You really can't do much to fix it. Paying an expert to look at it find the damaged parts and replace them would cost many times over that of replacing it.

Phone got wet, still turns on, works, but seems that power button

If the phone just got a little wet, you better remove the battery and blow dry thru' all the vents in the phone. Wait for atleast an hour and blow dry again. Now connect the battery and test it. If it still turns on automatically, the water is out of your reach and the phone HAS to be opened to dry properly. Please donot work with in this condition or you could lose your phone.

Phone stuck on car kit

you got your phone wet somehow. Take some electrical contact cleaner and spray it on a toothbrush. next clean the charging port on the bottom of the phone. Or another possibility is that you have damaged the pins on your charging port. Sounds like it might be time for an upgrade. good luck.
