I dropped my net ten phone in a small puddle of water the screen was already cracked now it wont unlock

Water and electronics are a fatal combination. You can try to keep it inside the house where it's warm and dry and maybe after a few days or a couple weeks it might come back for you, but I think it's time to get a new phone, Peter.

I dropped my cell phone in the water and it got soaked wet. I dried it and turned it on it powered fine and after 30 seconds it restarted again and flashed a code on the startup screen the firdt time it...

Water and electronics are not compatible. that said, engineers are trying to find ways to insulate electronic from accidental water exposure.

The phone may appear dry on the outside, but i guarantee you there is still water on the inside. There may also be residue from the water making odd electronic connections and shorts never intended.
I urge you to dry your phone thoroughly

Use a hair dryer on low setting and let it dry and heat up the interior of the phone to evaporate the water.
Of course turning your phone on so soon after the incident may have doomed it, but most batteries are at 3.2 volts and components can withstand up to 7.5 volts before damage.

So dry it out, and good luck. If you have a warranty on the phone, let the geeks worry about it.

good luck and don't forget to vote!!!

No reception on cell phone "No Network Service"

You need to check the RF. The RF is a component that pick up the signal. It is usually placed on the upper portion of the phone where there's a small exhaust so that the RF could pick up the signal better.

Once the RF gets wet, the component might become defective.

You need a phone tech to check or change the RF.

Have a great day!

You may still have water in tight places due to water surface tension. Open all the access doors, take out the SIM card, battery and anything else that is removable and put all parts in a ziplock bag. Get some dessicant bags (from old shoe boxes), cardboard pieces, saltine crackers and put them in the ziplock bag also and put on top of your microwave oven (if it is used a lot) or in the window where it gets direct sunlight. Leave it there until moisture gets on the bag then disappears again (3-5days) The dry items in the ziplock will help draw out all the moisture better than air drying. I have done this many times on cell phones, gameboys, etc. and it works everytime.

Dropped phone in puddle only screen is broken PLEASE HELP MEE!!!!

Unfortunately, I would suggest you not trying to fix this. The reason is once water gets inside, any of the parts that got wet will eventually corrode. It might work a day, a week, I actually had my phone work 2 months, then it will stop. You could replace the screen and have it work right away, but nobody could gaurantee that it will continue.

Well i droped my phone in the water and now after drying it off it works but it says "Car Kit" on the main page of my phone.

Believe it or not the phone is still possibly wet inside and its a very small amount of moisture shorting across something which is causing this spurious reading on the screen. There are a few ways to dry it out thoroughly, but I have always found the best method is to leave the phone on top of a radiator on a low heat setting for a couple of days and that usually does the trick. Please do not try to dry it out quickly by leaving it on a hot radiator or damage will surely happen to the phone. Good luck.

Water damage

Let me suggest you don't leave a high tech piece of equipment in a bag with a water bottle (even if it isn't open).

well that means you have liquid damage and you have voided your warranty on your device. Your only option is to buy a new phone or take advantage of insurance if you have it!

Anytime anything electronic gets wet, the first thing to do is remove the battery, electricity and water don't mix, it'll corrode the circuits inside, then let the gadget dry out completely, putting it somewhere warm is good, it might take a few days, if you can get your hands on some fresh dessicant packs (you know, those little "do not eat" packets you get in electronics and cameras and such now and then) they might help dry out the phone if you put them and it in a ziplock bag for a couple days.

if the circuits inside aren't corroded from having electricity on while wet, then the phone may be fine after it's dried out.

good luck.
