    the battery in this phone makes it so hard to dry out . you can't let it die like 94lt1 stated but you also dont want to apply power to it while wet. . so its a tough call. i would recommend all moto users have a factory cable you can make your own though it is not easy or buy them off ebay for 8-10 bucks . 2.5 ft Micro USB Factory Cable Fastboot mode for Motorola XT910 XT912 MT917 | eBay

    You're absolutely right about not letting the battery die and not applying power to a wet circuit...but I think I'd go with the let it dry first and take my chances that the battery will not drain so low that it can't be charged. You're right though...it's a tuff call. The factory cable would certainly be a great accessory at that point.

    I tend to agree with jpcalhoun... you have a much better chance of recovering the battery than recovering fried electronics.

    And an excellent suggestion, justin... I think I may order one of those for safety sake.

    Sorry doomager! Glad you can laugh about it. Thumbs up to you that you are. And thank goodness you have insurance.

    The fact of the matter is this.. yep, you can suggest letting it stay in a bag of rice or a dry out kit for 2 days... but let's face the facts, without a factory charge cable, you're gonna be in trouble.

    If the phone is froze, then its going to chew through your battery very quickly...

    So do you charge and keep the battery and charge circuits at operable levels?(if it will charge)

    Or do you let it dry out not plugged in? Yes common sense says let it dry out.. but that isn't always a viable option for people. This phone is just hard to mess with.. lol


    Edit: true this phone is hard to recover, seemingly impossible without a factory cable..

    if you didin't tank the battery out IMMEDIATELY after you dropped it in the water, the chance of it being recoverable is minute.
    If you can't build it you shouldn't be using it.

    or perhaps, keep it out of the water?

    Also, if you're going to try an alcohol bath, use isopropyl 90%. :thumbup:
    90%? why,, why not use 98%
    If you can't build it you shouldn't be using it.
