Most likely you will need to do more than that, as there will be condensation and moisture trapped inside your phone. Moisture + electronic circuits = bad news. Try this... it sounds really wacky but it often works: put your phone in a box full of uncooked rice, completely covering the phone on all sides. Leave it in the rice for a good 12-24 hours. Rice wicks away the moisture inside sensitive electronics. After 12-24 hours, turn it on and see what happens. Good luck!

Phone in washing machine

If you remove the battery and allow the phone to dry thoroughly, then reinstall the battery there is a remote chance the phone might work again although not as well. More likely, you will need to replace it. I've washed a phone too and had to replace it

How do i get my samsung r380 master volume to work again

Hi, Try replacing the battery. It is the main cause why it doesn't work. Many batteries don't take a charge after many uses. This is called internal discharge.

I have use internet when my windows phone hang and switch off automatic

With the phone on, try removing your battery for a minimum of 3 minutes. Replace the battery and turn your phone back on. This should reset it, and hopefully your internet will work again.

Dropped my samsung eternity in water

You phone needs to be taken apart and dried out. You probably shorted the battery, it will need to be replaced. If it got really wet, boards start to corrode and phone may not be fixable. Every connection on phone needs to be taken apart and dried, hopefully your phone will work again. Sometimes I get them to work again, and sometimes I don't. Good Luck

My Samsung instinct phone freezes when you turn it on and -battery checks Good

Take the battery out for two minutes, try again, or try letting the phone die and then charge it back up. If these do not work, you will have to get the phone repaired or replaced at a sprint repair center.
