So my waterproof cover was closed and I was blasting music. My phone fell into a water stream I was washing dishes. Instantly my speakers started sucking and it hasn't been the same (about 30 mins ago). I thought this phone was water proof?!?! the rest of the phone is working fine. I opened up the case, no water inside. I am confused to say the least!

Do you think the speakers are screwed? I don't understand this. Its past my return period should have tried this the first day I got it!

The phone is water resistant, not waterproof. Also give it a little more time, the speakers will go back to normal.

There is water on the speaker membrane which distorts the sound and makes it quieter. Once it dries out you will be fine.

Thank you. Do you think I should keep the phone off?

Nope, don't worry about it. Your speaker is still wet just give it more time.

Happened to me when I went in the shower, the earpiece where you listen to people on calls went really quiet and tinny for a few hours.
I crapped myself lol but you just gotta be patient and the water will leave the phone :P

I have washed my phone several times. Also I have taken shots in a pool underwater. My phone doesn't have any problems. Remember you cant listen to music or talk on the phone immediately after you take it out of the water. The speakers are full of water and you have to give them some time.

Thumbs up
Put your phone in a plastic bag with rice in it then seal the bag for a while The rice draws all the moisture out
