    I did the same exact thing...I dropped it in the tiolet and took out the battery and sim card to let it dry. Then when I put it on the charger the screeen turned red. i turned it off and let it sit awhile and then it worked for a bit but now it keeps restarting itself like ecery 30 seconds. Can I fix this phone??

I dropped my phone in the toilet. I took out the battery and let it dry. When i turned it back on the screen just says downloading error v5.50. I dont know what this means or how to fix my phone


Hello my friend,if the phone`s board is oxidized now there is nothing you can do anymore.You should immediately open your mobile unplug everything and try to dry everything with a hairdressers gun and leave the battery and the Sim card out for some hours when you dropped it into the water.Also make sure that Sim card and battery is completely dry before install it again.The only thing you can try is to go to your manufacture support site and download the latest firmware and reinstall it.

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!

Hi there, I believe you would have saved your contacts on the sim rather than the mobile. If that is the case, you can put your sim into another mobile, if you don't have one, maybe your friend's and atleast retrieve the contacts.
Hope this helps :)

Dropped in the toilet..any ideas on how to bring it back to life?


Hi there.... I have had many cell phones that have got wet and stopped working and every time I had to take out the battery and sim card, lay on side for at least 12 to 24 hours and they all came back to life. I don't think the freezer is the best idea.

That has always worked for me. Did you call customer/tech support for your carrier?

My LG Vu says Emergency download after I dropped it in water. And it won't do anything but go to that screen fell into the toilet and when i tried turning it on i saays Emergency Download


Take out the battery....then put it back in. Do not try to turn on the phone yet. Next plug the phone up to charge. Wait until the charging screen appears and then power the phone. Worked for me.....good luck.

Phone dropped in the toilet!!


Motorola has a program call phone tools that you can install in your computer and connect your phone to it. The software will copy the info from your phone and it will also load your contact information from outlook into your phone. Not sure if your phone will connect after it's been dropped in the toilet though. BTW: I bougt the program off of Amazon for about 8.00.
