    So I hace the moto atrix 4g. Its about 1 week and a half old.

    Last night I was running through the rain from my truck, slipped, and my phone fell in a puddle full of leaves and water.
    It was in the water for about 1.1 seconds tops.
    I hurriedly shook off all the water on the outside, pulled off back, dried, pulled battery out, dried.

    Then I vigorously sucked through all the ports. I was only able to get a very small amount of water out of each.

    Then I let it sit all night.

    About four hours later, frustrated and curious, I put the battery back in and started it up.

    It made it to the Att screen, then freaked out, then went black.

    After that it would not hold a charge or turn back on.

    On the assumption that MAYBE the battery went totally dead? I put it on the charger over night.

    I tried to turn it on again about 12 hours after initial water contact. It would not turn on, so I got pissed, and through it at the floor.

    A few minutes after that, I decided that who knows, the throw may have unlogged some dirt or something? lol
    So I sheepishly tried again.

    So now my phone is uhm, working, for all intensive purposes... it took a little while to load up, but it is doing everything it was doing yesterday the way that I want it to... so...

    But, en lue of the " Three days later IT DIED!" comment,

    I have taken my battery back out and am looking for a certain solution.

    It is best to just have a savvy kind of person take it apart and clean it?

    Where is the water sensor on the Atrix? are there several?

    The battery has a sticker with red X's that I assume is one, but there is also a little tiny hole with a red dye stain to the right of the sim card.

    Any advice is welcome. .thanks!!!
