Short(ish) version: my Droid took a dunk today. I took it apart and dried it out the best I could, then put it back together and turned it on. (Yes, I now know this was a mistake.) It came up on the "bootloader" screen. This phone was NOT "rooted", and I am NOT a programmer and don't want to be. I now have the Droid pulled apart and drying; if I get that same screen when I put it back together, is there an EASY way to get it back to working normally? Or am I better off to eat the $89 deductible and have the insurance replace it?
More details: I dried the phone out as best I could, then put it back together and turned it on. I had a black screen for a few seconds, then the white Moto logo for a few seconds, then black, then logo ... this went on for a couple of minutes. It eventually did load, but had no signal and, oddly, my Google Calendar widget was not working (but other apps appeared to be). I have recently had the familiar "no sound after headphones" trouble and also some trouble with my bluetooth; in both cases, shutting the phone off and then re-starting it solved the problem. So I tried that this time, but when it came back up I got the "bootloader -- battery ok -- ok to program" screen.
Is there hope? Or should I just get on the phone with Assurion? (I've had the phone a whopping six weeks ... never did this to the cheapo flip phones I've used for years!!! )
