    That's good to know, thanks Netboy but I think I'm going to try Heem's suggestion first. I'm going to go back to Best Buys and tell them that I replaced my battery earlier with them because my battery wouldn't hold a charge now my phone just wont turn on (keeping a distressed look on my face) :D

    Yea, let this be a lesson.

    I have seen many phones dropped in water.

    Immediately take the battery out. Let it sit for at least 2 days. Then put it back in and connect it to charge.It will work almost every time.

    its not usually the water that kills the phone, but the arcing from the water plus electricity.

    I wonder what would happen if after dropping it in water, you dropped it in distilled water. Then let it dry.

    Distilled water is not a conductor...

    You can piss on your Droid in the store right in front of them and they will replace it if you have insurance. Well, for $89 they will.. And if they press charges it could get expensive..

    The replacement cost has nothing to do with Verizon. It's a deductible and it's set by Asurion not VZW at all.

    the water indicators are garbage unless the droids is better. mine activated on my voyager (only the phone sticker and not the battery) and it has never been in a watery condition its almost like i would take a bullet for my phone. it must of activated due to the high humidity this summer

    and RinTinTigger do you mean saw dust?

    I was chatting with my verizon guy when I bought my droid andd we were talking about this very subject. He told me about a guy who brought in his phone to be replaced becasue it had fallen in a port-a-potty. The guy actually fished it out and brought it into the store and wanted them to transfer his contacts for them!! GROSSS!!!!!!!
