    phone got wet :(

    phone got wet yesterday, tried the rice trick but didn't work. Pretty sure it's a goner. Debating what to do next. I have insurance, but never used it before. No idea what it covers etc. Also have my son's upgrade coming up on the 1st that I might be able to use

    Take the back cover off and pull the battery, If you still have your old phone in a drawer somewhere pull it out. Wait a few days it should come back to life. Mine survived the washing machine. I didnt realize it was still in my pocket till the spin cycle aaaahahahaaa .

    That's too bad. The device may come back to life. But the insurance process for a bionic should be quick and easy.

    Avoid using a hair dryer on it, definitely remove the battery door and the battery I'm not sure what the fee for the bionic is... I think its still 100$. But I could be wrong but you get a new phone

    The only problem with that is when they take the back cover off and the blotter pads show water damage, they will charge you full retail for the phone they sent you so you need to pray that those pads didn't get wet.

    You better hope the water indicator wasn't tripped or you'll be getting a nice $599 charge on your next bill.
    If we all agree on it, it must be true.[citation needed​]

    Agreed. I would've just went with the insurance on this.

    You do k.ow that they can charge you full retail if they find that the phone was wet?? That's 500$ vs 100$.

    Also the phone they're sending you is a CLNR, or a refurb. For 100$ you get a brand new device

    Hope it works out for you
