    Hope this isnt against rules.. I have a water damaged droid 1...Options Please...

    I have a approx six month old Droid 1 that will not power on due to water damage. Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do with it, where to sell it, or more importantly, how much I can get for it? New Droid X should be delivered to me on 08/25/2010. Any help would be appreciated!!

    If you want to sell it, Take it to Ebay or Craigslist....

    Get a Heat Gun

    I found this tip online:

    Use a heat gun to evaporate the water in the droid.

    Take out the battery and run the heat gun on low for 10 mins.

    Then you can recover your data.

    I would love to turn it on and recover data like contacts and apps but it will not turn on. It got wet on the 7th and I tried to turn it on shortly after it got wet. I think i fried it! From what I understand, I can swith mem cards with the droid x coming Wed to retrieve my music and pics. Also get access to my paid and unpaid apps by signing in to gmail. Just not sure how to get my contacts. Its been dry for awhile I think, but still wont turn on. Am I correct on this?

    Contacts should be pushed back to the device from Google.

    Your contacts will sync when you activate your new droid.
