how I did it:
On April 19, 2009, I was playing on the slip-n-slide with my sister and my friend. i was sitting in a puddle of water and after 20 minuets in that puddle, i got up and i felt my pocket and felt my phone!!!!!!!! i took it out as fast as i could. it was too late! i was so mad! I tried to turn on my phone and my screen was flooded! So i took out my battery and such then dried them all. It did not work. i was sooooooo devastated. I thought i was going to be in deep stuff. I kind of was. My mom didn't explode(yell) at me the way i thought she was going to. But I am using my old phone, only to call her or my dad now though. It sucks. But my dad said that i could use that phone again only if i can figure out how to fix it. any suggestions?

    Dry it out- just take off the battery compartment cover,
    and lay it and the phone out on a towel, for 24 to 72 hours.
    Then replace the battery if you can. If it still doesn't work,
    replace the phone. I once lost a cell phone at the river, and I had to replace it. I think you'd like a newer one, anyway.
    I'll bet you a pizza, you'd like your next one better, than the one that got wet. lost cell phone river replace newer ill bet pizza wet

    why? Cell phones veary in cost and from provider to provider.
    Pay as you go ones are genearlly less than $50- usually upto $40.
    And it' s my experience that when a cell phone has been in water, it wont work any more. So even if you have to raise the money on your own, or save your allowance every month, you have to get a new one.

    Best bet is to pull the battery then dry it out with a hair blower dryer. Then hope and then buy a new one.

    Put it in a bowl of rice. The rice will help absorb the water in it.

    Get a new phone. I got mine wet (in a urinal) and even dried out a year later, it didn't work.

    The phone will work again, but you need to let it dry out, it might take time, but water usually dosen't damage components.
