    My wife was running into her firehouse and tripped up (yes I laughed a little) some stairs during a torrential downpour. Phone was in her hand. Poor Guy went flying, landed face down, battery door off, battery out (aka very small rain bucket). She kept it apart fortunately. Unfortunately the guys at the firehouse tried to dry it with an air gun. I took it COMPLETELY apart and let it sit for 24 hours. All screws were out, motherboard, screen, everything. Reassembled it tonight and it worked. The screen has a dead area for touch and the back arrow/button doesn't work. Some other minor issues she will have to work around for the next 45 days or so until her upgrade but its tons better than having to buy a new one or to keep using her old LG Vortex.
