so today i went in my pool. only 10 minutes later i realized my phone was in my pocket.

i got out, took the battery out, shook the water out, vacuumed it to get the water inside out, and put it in a bag with cotton and rice to absorb moisture.

anything else i can do. so far it doesn't turn on

Is it dry inside completely?

I had a phone that got drenched and I just took the battery out for 3 days and it worked fine after.

1. take the battery out.
2. throw phone without back on and battery into bowl of rice, comepletly covered in rice
3. leave it for a good 24-48 hours


it should work after that

^ This.

A mate of mine tried it just last week when his missus dropped hers in water. Just 1 night in dry rice sorted it no problem.

Maybe, maybe not. Just switch it off and try the rice for a day or two.

Hate to say it, but probably. You might have short-circuited it. My phone went through the washer when it was on, so at least yours has a chance.

ok so its been in rice all day and i can tell it was working because some of the rice is darker and softer, it doesn't work but when i plug it in to the charger, i get power, but the screen is still ****ed up. it is readable sometimes, and im sure i could still make calls and such but i cant read texts and stuff. so now i asked my dad if we had any silicon absorbers (you know the "do not eat" ones) and he had one in the chlorine bucket. so i put it in a bag with that and some rice and im going to let it sit in the bag like that all night until about noon tomorrow. im just hoping it will clear up the screen so i can use it while it is still plugged in while im in hatteras and when i get home i can get a different phone.

and now my phone will reek of chlorine.

just wait it out man, i've had my phone dropped in a pool twice. just leave the battery, the sim card, and the phone itself alone for a day or overnight and you'll be fine. you don't really have to go through the extent of putting it in rice and all that stuff but it's not a bad idea either. all i did was separate everything and blowdry it for a little bit and leave it overnight.

if it doesn't work perfectly at first just keep it apart for more time. at first when i was first able to turn mine on the 5 button served as the off button and the 7 button served as select and everything was screwed up, but i just left it alone for a while and it got better and is perfectly fine now.

so pretty much it's not that big of a deal, just leave it alone.

i'd say any electronic equipment would be f*cked if it was in water for an extended period of time but if rice works, bonus.

i washed my razor in the washing machine by mistake left it out for about a day and a half to dry and it worked pretty much perfectly. The lights behind the keys were broke but thats about it. I also know a guy who had one in his pocket when he got in a hot tub and it still worked when it dried off.

Wow, sounds exactly what happened to me. All you can really do is let it dry out, try not to turn it on, and hope for good luck.

Turns out, my luck wasn't so good. The battery was screwed up, but the battery cost $60, and the insurance claim was on.y $50, so I got a new phone.

Still, $50 I didn't really want to spend. Best of luck to you, hopefully it works

I did the same thing, and my phone never worked properly again. it would make calls, etc, but anytime the battery was in, the "flash" for the camera would be on... which drains battery in about 15 minutes...

It could work.
Remember those old Nokias, with the Snake game?

Well at work, a little kid dropped my mom's phone in a bucket full of water and it kept working.
And my dad damn spilled acetone over it also at work, and it kept working !
