    Oh no

    Well I just dropped my razr in the pool yesterday and dove in as fast as I could to get it. I went and bought one of those phone saver kits from walmart as fast as I could but I couldn't turn the phone off because it froze as soon as I got it out of the water. So I left it in the phone saving bag for about 24 hours out in my truck. I thought maybe the extra heat out there might help get the water circulating out of my phone, but today it is flashing red and it just says droid with a black background, and it is unresponsive. Any ideas? lol

    Oh man, I am so sorry....that reeks! You did everything as much as possible as you could have. The only other thing is to keep it off and try letting it sit for a couple more days and cross your fingers. Believe it or not, phones have miracuously come back to life after it seems like they never should have.

    Press and hold power and volume down, hold it for about 20 seconds... see what happens, did your pool have chlorine in it??


    If it boots cool.. but if not, you may consider getting it charging... if the battery goes too dead.. it wont be recoverable..

    sounds like you have done most you could. i would let it sit for a few days. if pool had chlorine in it that stuff just eats at the electronics..

    Hey thanks for the quick responses. We had just refilled the pool and it was kinda green so it must have had a pretty low concentration of chlorine in it. probably a lot less than a normal pool. Oh and I got it to turn off with the power and volume down buttons. I can still see a ton of moisture in the camera lens and flash

    If you can't see what the battery level is, charge it. These phones are hard to recover if the battery drops below its safe level, it will no longer go onto charge only mode...
    If you can see the power level.. then by all means keep it powered off. Don't let it drop too low though.. the white light of death is not a fun situation to mess with.

    I've had people argue with me about this solution, but that's ok-I'm an electronics tech by trade. I dunked my D2G and stuck it in the oven at low heat for 6 hours. There is literally no humidity in your oven and it will dry the phone out. It saved mine. I'm sure some non-electronics technician types will argue this, though...

    About a year ago my friend dropped his Droid X in a puddle. I watched in horror and slight amusement as he did exactly what you did, expecting the phone to melt or burst into flames or something but it's still going strong today.

    He did take the battery out before doing that, I'm not sure what kind of heat a lithium battery can take but the Razr battery isn't removable anyway.
