Hello everyone, I'm new to the forums.
After owning my Moto Droid since April of this year, it finally happened -- it fell into a bucket of water mixed with paint, and seems to be suffering some fairly significant water damage.
The phone was still working after it fell in, so I proceeded to shut it off, take out the battery and cover, and lay them out to dry. This morning, when I figured everything should be fine, I tried turning it on again... no go, unfortunately, it was dead.
I got home later and plugged it into my charger: the phone turned on while plugged in, and aside from obvious stains from the mixed water and paint in the bucket on the screen, everything seemed to work fine -- I checked my email, texts, etc. without any issues. The battery charge level was 60% so I disconnected it, and the phone still worked. At that point I decided that the issue was resolved, putting it down and plugging it in, allowing it to charge.
When I picked it back up again, it was going through the startup screen. Seems like it's stuck in some sort of limbo where the battery randomly fails, forcing it to reboot... or it could be the phone itself, I don't know.
Worth noting is the fact that the water sticker on the back is still white with red "+'s" in it. Could I get the phone replaced in its current state, or is there another easy way out? I don't have any extra insurance or coverage on my plan, as far as I know...
Thanks in advance!
