You need to try Silica Gel Packets to dry out your phone. There was a good article on that explains how to dry a wet cell phone, iPods, or any electronics.

You need to place your cell phone in a zip lock bag with Silica Gel Packets. Silica Gel will remove all the moisture from the phone and its components, something air drying will not do!

Just Google "Silica Gel Packets" and you will find several companies selling these products. There is also a web site called: that has them.

Phone got wet fix

It's probably too late, but first open the case, take out the battery and shake out any water. Then place in a jar of rice (absorbs all the water). Then let it air dry overnight. After all is thoroughly dry, replace battery and try it out. The reason it may be too late, is that with the battery in, electrolysis takes place and damages connections and circuit boards. I hope it's not too late for you.

There are products that you can buy to help dry the phone, like a bag of silica gel. I like using the free way, which is using a bag of dried rice. Whataver you do, do not attempt to turn on the phone, that will definitely ruin it, if the components are still wet inside.
  1. Take a bag of uncooked rice, and submerge the phone in the dry rice for at least 3 days. Keep the bag in a cool and dry place.
  2. After three days, if there is any indication that the phone is still wet, return the phone to the bag and wait another day.
  3. Once you believe the phone is dry (max 4 days) remove the phone from the rice, and attempt to turn it on.

Got my cell phone a little wet yesterday with milk. Placed it in rice overnight. Is jumping from taking pics by itself to sometimes calling by itself.

I would let the phone sit in the rice for at lease a day. It sounds like it's still damp. With luck it will be fine, but if you continue to use it while damp it could be damaged. Try a little patience.

My phone got wet....wont turn on. Any suggestions or is it fried?

The best thing to do with a wet phone is to not even try to turn it on...then place it in a bag of dry minute rice for at least a few days... check the rice...if it becomes moist, then change it and keep the phone in it until it draws the moisture out of the phone...after the phone is completely dry then try to turn it on...

My daughter spilled juice on her cell phone, it can receive calls but she cant answer them because the touch screen will not work

You should never turn on any electronics that are wet.
  • Remove the battery
  • Place phone in a bag of rice
  • let it sit for 24/48 hours
  • Replace battery

Once it has dried out from the rice, you should be good to go, if you have not damaged it by powering it up while it was wet

I hope this helps

You may have done permanent damage by putting the battery back in too soon. Remove the battery and put the phone in a warm dry place and leave it for week to dry out internally. Maybe it will work after that but you're most likely looking at having to replace it.

The touch screen is toatlly unresponsive, not frozen , not able to tell im touching it

Did it get wet? If it did turn the phone off, take out the battery and SIM card and place it in a bowl of uncooked rice..this will soak up the moisture.. leave it in there overnight and then put it back together and turn it on.

Sometimes the touchscreen fixes itself..

The last solution i have it to use a lighter to LIGHTLY wave over the screen...add pressure to the screen.. and then try it.

Patience and good luck!

Faulty battery perhaps

It could be either with water damage, and if the phone is still wet inside it will overheat by plugging it in.

Get a bowl of rice, remove the battery and leave the back of the phone open. Put both battery and phone in bowl of rice and leave covered overnight. The rice will soak up any water in the phone or battery.

If this doesn't work the phone has permanent water damage and will need to be replaced.
