You should not take chances with your phone by putting it in the frezzer.The best thing to do when a phone has fallen into water is to dryit up as you have done.But unfortunately it hasn't worked for you.The best thing to do now is to take your phone to your retailer and ask to solve the problem.You should not take it to local mobile phone repairing shops.They might solve the problem for now but it may pop up again.So take your phone to the authorized dealer as soon as possible.Thank you

By mistake i dropped my nokia c3 in water and the keypad doesnt work now

Usually when the mobile falls into the water you need to remove everything and immediately take it to a service center so that they will wipe it with some petrol. Now it doesnt work since you dropped it in water only. Check it again with a Nokia service provider.

If it was dropped in water ,it must've fried the power chip.This Can Not Be fixed with a hair dryer...if you take it down to a computer repair shop they coul replace the chip for a price of around $400 (depend whether other parts or circuits have been harmed) I've done this before on my t100 and I spent at least $500 for the chip and the LCD screen.

Dropped Nokia Nuron in pool, everything seems to have dried out, but when the SIM is in the device, the phone says to Insert SIM. the Sim works in another phone

The phone component called sim driver ic is damaged the only solution is to replace the sim driver ic.
I suggest you bring it in for repairs, A user cannot replace that IC because it uses special tools, for its because the IC is made of glass.

My samsung impression dropped in water and touch screen broke

I also dropped my Samsung Impression in the toilet, I immediately took the phone took the protective case off, took the battery cover off, and took the battery and my SIM card out and towel dried it as best as I could. Then I sat it on the floor next to my fan and let it dry until I got to my grandparents a little while later and I put it in a bowl of rice, completely covered the phone and battery with rice and left it sit overnight in the rice and all of the next day, so far i've had it on about 20 minutes and have had no problems with it so far, another solution is to sit it in the sun, to further dry it out. Water damage will void warranties on your phone and battery and your provider will know instantly if the damage was water related when they take your battery cover off, there is a small square sticker that when dry and hasn't touched water should be white, but as soon as it comes into contact with water it turns red, there is also one of these stickers on the battery. My stickers were red and after sitting in the rice they look like they got lighter in color considerably, I don't know if that is really possible but appearance wise it looks that way. I hope this helps anyone who has had this problem. Good Luck!

HTC diamond dropped in water

Try using a hairdryer on it. Open it up as far as you can without voiding your warranty. Don't let it get too hot but the moisture is inside and you may be able to get it to dry out in a couple of days.
