Exclamation Phone got wet!!!!

Please Login to Remove!

My phone got wet but now its dry cause i didn't know it was wet but it was in my gym bag and i guess the frozen water jug just came off of it. the only problem now is that none of the buttons work. not even the outside ones. and my phone is locked so i can't unlock it. if i take out my battery and put it back in i don't have to unlock it but when i press the ball, QW pops up and all the buttons are wrong. what do i do?!

It is best to do nothing other than pull the battery and leave it out. If you turn it on, you might fry the insides and it will really be worthless.

You can do a search and see what you find, as this has been covered many times.

From our FAQ:

Had something similar today. Got a big dark spot on the lcd. Pulled the battery and left it under a fan for a few hours. It worked and I'm using it now. Got very lucky!

Yes. Make sure to get insurance, if you don't have already.
