The salt water causes the internal components to corrode. Your best bet would have been to open the device up immediately afterward and wash it out with electronics/CRT cleaner and leave it out to dry. But after 12 hours, the inside probably looks like a sticky corroded mess.

At this point I would try and pull the SIM, at least then you'll back up your contacts and phone number. Then buy a new phone and install the old SIM.

    With salt water after 12 hours, it won't matter if he dries the parts or not.

Droped my htc mogul in water now it wont come on


this may sound strange, but it has worked alot. take the battery out and put the phone itself in a ziplock bag filled with white rice. leave for 12-24 hours and check it. basically the rice sucks the moisture out of the phone. like i said i have seen this work multiple times, but not always.

My motorola rival A455 cell phone got droped in water


try this :
This works on most mini electronic devices like cellular phones and degital cameras etc .

it sounds crazy .

Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY
.

Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points (shiny, goldish) on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.

Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.

It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).

beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.


This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick.

PHONE DROPED IN TO THE SEA NOW ITS NOT WORKING DISPLY OUT


There's nothing you can do. Salt water is the single worst thing for any electronic device, excepting fire.

The only chance your phone had would have been to recover it immediately, remove the battery and then immerse it in de-ionised water to rinse out all the salt water. After a thorough shake out and drying the phone had a slim possibility of working again.

Sorry, but your phone is a write-off.

in the picture you can see the corrosion in an iPhone 3G motherboard, after 12 hours the device was exposed to water.
So please hurry up, and get you iPhone dismantled and dried.
