    I accidentally dropped my phone in the toilet, but got it out immediately and dried i off and made sure everything worked fine, which it did, but then after a few hours it turned off and vibrated for a moment nd stopped, then vibrated and stopped and wouldnt stop til I took out the battery. When I put the battery back in, It acted like it would turn back on normally, then after the samsung screen it just started vibrating again and wont stop. Please help. :frown:

    Welcome to the forum

    Put the phone, and the battery (separate) into a bag of uncooked rice for at least 48 hours.

    Thanks, it worked, but now the lock button will unlock but wont lock :( Can I fix it, or is it permanent?

    Hard to say. The internal switch may be bad or still damp. Maybe more time sealed up with the rice might help.
