If it was submerged for only a few seconds, the damage may be minimal if the phone was promptly dried. Cell phones have a moisture sensing pad about 1-2 mm square located in the battery compartment to tell the vendor the phone has been wet. The pad turns pink on exposure to water. That says volumes about how common it is and and how sensitive cell phones are to the experience. That said, you may want to try these:

1) When you power it on, does it power up normally? The battery is probably fully discharged, so a full charge cycle is recommended.

2) If the display has blotches or fails to display at all, water may have damaged it. Not much hope in that case.

3) Do all the keys and buttons operate correctly? If not, it may be possible that some moisture is still trapped there. Careful disassembly and blow drying may help as well as a very careful polishing the contacts with a cotton swab or pencil eraser might remove any light corrosion. Always blow off the phone again before reassembly.

4) Many cellular services offer insurance for a nominal monthly fee. If you work or are around water a lot, it is cheap protection. So is the most secure case you can find. Next time.

I keep waiting for the vendors to offer a 'sport' or 'off-road' version of popular phones that have some nominal weatherproofing and will withstand a quick dunk. Sony used to make a personal electronics with a signature yellow-orange case that were so designed. I loved them, and their reliability.

Phone fell in water

If it's at the point where the screen isn't working properly, it's dead. If you have some kind of extended warranty, it may cover it, but there's no real way to bring it back from being water damaged, unfortunately.

Sony cybershot DS W80 is not switching since mother board is u/s. It fell in sea water. suspected problem in LCD also. spares are not available other than sony company servicing centres which is very...

The repair to any camera damaged by sea water will cost more than the cost of a new camera since everything must be replaced because salt water is corrosive. Add the replacement parts to the labor costs and you now have a repaired camera that cost more than a new one.

I have a nokia 1108 phone but it is not working because it fell down, i have given repaired to Nokia priority care but it is not repaired. the actual problem of the phone is {INSERT SIM} and {DISPLAY...

If Nokia says beyond repair it means that the main boarrd is faulty and the cost of replacement is more than the cost of the new model phone with advanced features. So please understand that youmust not waste any money to get this done but maybe some dealers might take an exchange for spares and trade a new phone.

What to do is this,

Unscrew the phone,
Get a Methylated spirit and a brush,
Bring out the board of the phone and use the methylated spirit to brush off remaining water on phone.
Keep under heat to dry off,
After board is dried, fix it back and screw back phone.

Am sure after doing this phone will work well.
But if phone still doesn't work ,that means water has damage some component inside the phone.
You will need to consult a phone technician for assistance.
Take care.

My phone also fell into a bucket full of water. I just gave the phone to the service center for repair and it's now absolutely fine.

I would suggest you to do the same. Also, don't try to switch on the phone as it may lead to short circuit in your phone.

Thank You
