    Help droped in water.cant powerdown because screen is blank. Batterynot removable!!!!

    Itprobably would have been fine if I could have pwered down right away but it wont power down and I cant remove the batter. Is there anything I can do to get it to shut off so I can let it dry out!?!?!?!?

    quickly pull the battery door and stick it in a big bag of rice and if u have sillica gel packets put them in there as well... you should put this in a warm place as well... if u got a torx 5 driver disconnect the ribbon cable as well... got to peel the sticker a bit on the bottom

    Did that but I can still hear everything sizzling! I cant believe the battery isnt removable! I probably could have saved it if I could have just taken that out. Now I'm sure it will be destroyed.

    Now we know the real reason for the switch to non-removable batteries, to force people to buy new phones instead of salvaging their current phones if they get wet.

    Maybe but dropping the phone in water and reviving it by drying it out while off power was still a bit of a long shot even back in the day.

    i guess i dropped 3 cell phones in the toilet... eww... but saved each one by pullin the battery and letting it dry for a week... even stuck my v3razr in the oven at 125f to dry it out... it did work.

    Silica gel is useful, rice not so much. Rice's "drying power" is extremely limited. Best way is to rinse with the purest isopropyl alcohol you can find, dry as thoroughly as possible, and use silica gel to get the rest. How to Deal with a Droid thats Gotten Wet–THE RIGHT WAY

    true but not everyone has sillica gel on hand should have suggested alcohol tho... or even mineral oil to push the water out with polarity
