    I have the same problem, I was using my phone in the rain yesturday, just a couple drops got on the phone, but it was enough for the water damage sticker on the phone to go. the one on the battery is fine. After that it would turn on, say downloading, and then go off again. eventually it turned on and was "working" except the middle column of numbers wasn't working, and the backspace key and the right option button didn't work. I took the battery out to let it dry out, and now it only goes to the downloading screen.

    I dropped my phone in the snow for about 5 seconds and since then the phone (when I turn it on) only says "download" across the front and won't do anything else? This seems to be a common problem, but is there any solution? Thanks.

How much water got in the phone? If you dont want to disassemble the phone, put in in a zip lock bag of rice for 24 hours and see if it starts. If not you can take it apart and dry it out.

The phone says it is fully charged, have a new battery, but when try to turn it on only see a white screen, phone acts like it is turning on but immediately powers off.

The phone has internal damage or water damage. If the phone does not have water damage take the phone to a Verizon store.

you can take the battery and the back off the device and place in completely submerged in a bag of white rice and leave it in there for 1 to 2 days this will help absorb the moisture, this should fix it if the water did not damage the circut boards if the water damaged the circut boards then the device is fried
