    Dunked in water!

    UGH, I dropped my Razr in the sink while washing my hands! I rescued it right away and it still turns on but it has been acting weird (fuzzy outgoing call sound, not going to lock screen, freezing up, etc). I turned it off, opened the SDI card door, and packed it up in a container of dry rice to absorb any moisture. Did I kill it? Is there anything else I can do?????

    I am still within my 14 days to return it and I have the insurance plan but I am guessing water damage isn't covered by Verizon. Anyone have any experience with this?


    Thanks!

    I thought insurance covered dunking it in water? maybe you can say you lost it? Try what previous guy said, say its faulty and see how that goes.

    Lying to VZW on this level is fraud and won't be discussed on DF, plus they will know it's gotten wet and charge you full price once the truth comes out


    Insurance however covers water damage, it's your best bet - be honest it goes a long way

    Yes, I'm pretty sure in the tear down you can see moisture sensor. It's moisture resistant not water proof. If you bought and paid for insurance use it. No need to lie and make things up. You will reap what you sow in the long haul. It's an electronic device accidents happen. It's not worth lying over.

    I drowned my X in a pool last year. Tried wiping it out, using a hair dryer then left it in a bag of uncooked rice - all to no avail. I check my homeowner's insurance and found there was a rider that covered electronic devices - after a 50 deductible I got a new X. From what I understand the Verizon insurance covers any replacement with a 99 dollar deductible.

    I know you guys are trying to help. But, by saying its a faulty device is suggesting insurance fraud. And we don't condone that here at Droid Forums.

    Did you store it in a ziplock bag filled with rice? Yank the battery first and don't turn it on for a couple days. Then try it. The rice supposedly absorbs the moisture in the phone. It worked for my brother. Twice.
