Once a phone has been water damaged it will never work properly again. Water - even fresh water - contains salt. And, salt is an excellent conductor of electricity. When the water evaporates, salt deposits still remain. This causes the phone's electronics to short circuit causing a variety of problems.

The cost to repair the phone will far outweigh the cost to replace it. Repairing it does not mean that it will continue to work properly.

My advice is to sell the phone on eBay for parts. Let the buyer know it has suffered water damage. And, replace it with a new phone. You'll be much happier in the long run.

Phone fell in water

If it's at the point where the screen isn't working properly, it's dead. If you have some kind of extended warranty, it may cover it, but there's no real way to bring it back from being water damaged, unfortunately.

Yo! the drying system you used is not enough to dry it. you need to open it up to the best you can and dry under the sun for hours or under **** heat. that should do. thanks

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.

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!

Sreen has gone blank

This happened to me when I dropped my phone in the sink. I took it all apart and laid all the parts out to dry for 2 hours. It works fine now. You can also try doing a hard reset. Keep the phone turned on and take the battery out. Wait 30 secs before replacing the battery. If that doesn't help, try calling your service provider.

Mobile phone stuck on download screen

Your phone has been asphyxiated of data while underwater and out of power and would like to have its information back, hence the download screen. Take it to your provider for further assistance.

Sidekick 2008 got wet

I dropped a phone in the toilet once, a T-mobile phone. it took a couple of days for it to dry out completely. Then I snapped it back together, and it was fine. Being that yours just got wet, and not immersed is different though, so you may want to take it into T-mobile and see if they can check it out for you because then you will know for sure what is going on. Good luck.
