ahh well...i just dropped my phone in a nice big bowl of cereal milk...it's an lg vx8500 chocolate....i let it dry out and it comes on....but it's still freaking out so i took the battery off and i'm letting it air dry under a fan for the rest of tonight...when it was on i tried calling someone to see if it'd still work and they said my voice was extremely muffled. I know verizon won't replace water damaged phones but this is where my question comes in, what does the water mark thing on the back of the phone look like after it's had water on it? Right now they're just white circles with little x's on them, this is exactly what they looked like before, but maybe a little darker. What exactly happens to them once they have had water on them?

So basically all thats wrong with my phone is....the soft keys freak out and I can't use them, and the microphone you speak into is somewhat screwed up.

tl;dr: what does the water mark test on the back of the phone/battery look like when it's had water on it?

Surely you can shove a wireless into an effects board, run about, stop and make weird noises, run again.

Doesn't matter. They'll know, and they won't replace it. Period. Even if the things aren't activated, phones don't just randomly contract water damage symptoms.

Plus it's gonna smell like milk and have milk in it.

yes, your probably right, but i think it's at least worth a try. What's the worst they can say? No?...it's just very frustrating because I use this phone everyday with my job...as in...I have to have it...and I can't afford another one right now -_-

you wrecked it by turning it on nub. If you ever get electronics in water or anything, you have to remove battery/open it up and let it dry for at least 3 days, if not longer. The internal components hold water in them and need to dry out.

If you turn it on when it's not dried out internally, it fries the components and makes it fudged up.

TS, you know this entire thread is going to be about the chocolate milk pun now, right?

But seriously, the watermarks already kicked in. The dark circles around the x's appear after the water damage.

haha then i will consider the chocolate milk joke my contribution to ug

but seriously...i just looked closely at it...there are no dark circles around the x's or the water marks....they're just white with redish-purple x's like before...maybe only a little darker

Google it, I hear there are watermarks inside of the phone too, lots of people are saying they go bright pink when in contact with water.

i'm wondering if had time to seep in around the battery, it seems to form a fairly tight seal and it was submerged for only a couple seconds...no more than 3, as soon as i heard it splash i got it out. I realize that it probably doesn't take much water to activate them, but is it possible that the milk didn't have time to get in the battery compartment? when i took the battery off there wasn't any milk in it
