    Its a droid x people. Sympathy not needed, Random spam sites not needed I've come to trust this forum tremendously for the singular reason that spammers and rudeness are not tolerated :)

    I heard dipping the phone in alcohol and putting it on rice can fix your phone... try youtube.com i think they have a video

    By the time it gets there it probably dry already

    Also why not just call Asurion and pay the 80 dollars if it is completely damaged... waste of money

    try the rice fix that was mentioned earlier. i can see how it could absorb all the liquid inside your phone.

    I didnt just get mine wet.. I sent my droid through an entire wash cycle. I removed the battery, dipped it in alcohol, and set it in front of a fan overnight and it worked for me. It wasn't completely dry for a few days so I would wait longer than overnight. The only problems I had was the screen has streaks on certain colors now but not totally noticeable. I wouldnt do the rice thing, I started to after the alcohol and realized how dusty and gunky it was making my phone.

    regular water is corrosive. damage to phone is a good possibility. I heard of the rubbing alcohol but what I have done in the past when a phone got dropped in water is get a gallon of distilled water. (not corrosive) and poor it in a glass with the battery out drop the phone in the glass of distilled water for 5 min. this will clean out any of the old water that may still be in phone. then let it dry for a couple days.

    you do have 30 days to purchase insurance on the phone so if the phone is not 30 days old you can purchase insurance and wait till the thing breaks and get a new phone.

    My phone insurance specifically says it doesn't cover water damage, or loss in a body of water. :frown:

    For those who get their phones wet, pull battery fast and never put it back in to "check to see if it still works" until many hours of dry time go by. your phone is not waterproof but it is tight and will take much time to dry out. Think of it as a balled up bathing suit instead of one hanging on the line. The moisture tags are shot and this is your last hope to get this baby back, add rice, chicken bones or any vodoo you got. I did meet one gal that was placing her phone on the car hood in the sun for the third time, each time it landed in the toilet as she was getting up. It may have worked but damn, i would hate to talk on that POS.:icon_eek:
