Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3
My motorola V3 got wet as i was texting in the rain :S i thought nothing of it, and put it in my damp pocket, next morning i woke up and the keypad lights up but the screen remains black. ive removed the battery and put it on charge bu t still wen i open up the phone, the keypad lights up. what shall i do?!
Sorry to say this but a wet phone is ruined. You will have to take it to a tech at your phone server. They will either repair it or you will have to get another one. Water and phones do not go together at all. Sux.

I fell in the lake (fresh water not ocean) with my Nokia, I took the
battery and chip out IMMEDIATELY then dried the phone it with the
hairdryer multiple times (even after I was sure it was dry). Even at
the risk of overheating the phone. What have you got to lose? I didn't
put the battery back in (don't want to fry the wet circuits) for
another day or so but kept a three hour routine of drying with the
hairdryer. Finally re-installed the battery (and the chip) It's been
working perfectly for a year and a half since! If you dropped your
phone into SALT WATER, that's much worse! Immediately remove the
battery and then submerge it again in warm tap water to try to remove
the salt. Rinse again, then shake it out and try drying it. AGAIN -
What do you have to lose?

Went swimming with phone got soaked...took out battery and sim...laid in sun looked ruined...came home charger worked.... powered on after charge but wouldnt stay on you could see water in screen grey and light was dark... keypad wouldnt work ... put on heating pad for night on high heat with battery out ..in the morning ran fingers HARD over keyboard after it powered on because keys still wouldnt work ... they started working as I did it now it works FINE like new ...heat is the answer and patience the heat hastens drying time

So my rich friend dropped his Razr Dolche Garbanna edition in some soap water, let it dry and gave it to me. It will turn on but every button opens the ring tone volume control except for the power button. it can get calls but can not answer them unless it is closed when the call comes in. any suggestions on how to fix this?

I dropped my motorola v3 in the bath twice before and just the other day aswell. now it doesnt work. last time it didnt work 4 months so i bought a new phone. i checked it months later and it worked! now i hav 2 leave mine 4 a few weeks, laid out, battery out case open etc and itll be alright. it might take months 2 dry out, but once its completlely dry itll work.

take out the battery and gently squeeze the phone together, apply some pressure to the back area of the phone under the battery, I applied pressure with my thumbs slowly and moved around the entire battery compartment. I suspect the connector is loose to the display that connects some place behind the battery. It seems to have fixed my phone the display came back full brightness so far!!
