Hey there.. Please help me guys!
I accidently left my phone in my jeans pocket and put that jeans to wash.... The phone got wet and isn't working now...

Things I tried:

> Removing battery instantly as I got the phone

>Keeping phone in sun and making water evaporate for some time...

> Then Putting battery in the phone and switching it on... (also tried the download mode.. it did not work )

Please Do Reply...

My phone also got wet few days back (fell in a puddle on the road!!). I let it dry outside in the sun but still it didn't work.

I searched and got suggestion to put phone in sack of rice as it absorbs the water.

After keeping the phone in rice for about 1.5 days I took it out and now it works except the power button has to be pressed hard and it doesn't work sometimes (it did not work initially after coming out of rice and I thought that phone is gone but it works).

Rice can help....
I would suggest that you put your phone in a box full of rice and close the box and let it be there for 1-2 days. This had helped me earlier.
And don't keep the battery in the phone, take it out and then put both the things in the box.
I hope this helps.
