    Seems I done the same thing with the same phone on the same day of the next month. They're very prone to
    water damage without a case, it's silly.

    Mine got bricked because a water
    balloon hit my leg. I didn't really notice it got my whole pocket
    draped, I just wiped the phone off and put it in my other pocket (It was still
    on at the time). 10 minutes later I check my pocket to make a call and
    it was just off... permanently.

    I've taken the battery out and left it in the airing cupboard for a day
    to get rid of the moist, then hooked it up to a charger. (Which fixed 3
    older phones of a similar problem), but absolutely no luck with this

Just give it some time!! Once the screen dries out it seems to work fine!! I have dropped mine in the tub now, TWICE, but it seems to be working as usual. It has a few issues, but no more than anyone else I know with the same phone.

Samsung mobile sgh e840 fell into water

remove all possible [parts, battery, back cover, sim card, memory card and other things you can open using a special screw driver, let it dry several days or use a hair dryer on cool settings until determined everything is dry.

As for the battery, let is dry under the hot sun before attempting to put it back in the phone.

after that make a simple power on test, if it works, you are in luck, otherwise consider your phone completely water damaged and will not be accepted for repair due to the red water damage mark indicator.

I dropped my Blackberry in a puddle of water and its not working. What can I do?

Remove the battery, turn the unit on it's back and allow any water to work its way out. Let the unit sit for a day or so. If you can't wait that long, take a blow dryer to it and blow out any water. When the unit appears to be completly dry, insert the battery and see if it boots up. If it doesn't, it may not be completely dry yet.

The 7290 is a pretty versatile unit. I dropped mine in a lake twice on the same camping trip. Both times I immediately removed the battery, laid it out on a rock and let the sun dry it. It booted up fine both times.

Phone is dead after drop into water

Remove the battery and allow the unit to dry thourouhly. Take a hair dryer to it if need be. Once dry, reinsert the battery. The unit should boot up. Water doesn't tend to cause any lasting damage. Pop (soda) or wine or anything that is sugary will fry the unit though. Good-luck.

Spil water on tmobile g1

when ever your phone has been submerged, u must always turn it off straight away, take the back off and allow to dry for several days, do not put in tumble dryer! if a problem still persists then yes u will have to change circuit board, could be very costly, could also try ebay

G1 in the toilet

Let it dry for a longer period. As, if the water has gone into the screen area, draining the water is a real issue. If it still doesnt respond, get it to a service station before the condition worsens.
