KYOCERA K9, screen will not function, lites, but no information
I have had a Kyocera K9 phone for just over 3 years now. I has worked very well, up until I fell in the lake with it on my belt. Understandably, water got into the phone, but it still functioned for about 24 hours. Then when I turn on the phone, the screen lites, but I get black lines on it, no usable info on the screen. Now, I would just replace it, BUT, I have a phone book in this phone with numbers I have nowhere else, as well as saved text messages. I would like to at least retrieve these numbers, and maybe those text messages too. Any idea on how I can do this? the phone charges, but turns on and off, but nothing else. Nshore Dragon

Ok, I had my k9- it was stashed in my filthy backpack, so I washed my backpack in the washer..forgot the phone for like..30 minutes..big screw-up- i pulled my soaking and newly cleaned k9 out of the washer and was like.i am screwed..I spoke to friend the next day and this is important advice..DO NOT TRY TO TURN IT ON! But Take out the battery, Then get uncooked rice-yes rice (no joke) get a air-tight zip lock -container -fill the container with rice and put the phone inside-seal-it-up...the rice will absorb all the excess moisture..if you leave it in..24-48 hours..no joke it worked for me..but if you try to turn it on before it is dry..you will fry the phone..disconnect battery.. put in dry-uncooked rice-air seal-wait 24-48-hours..wallla a dry -functioning phone..good luck--steve-o
