i was getting ready to go to bed and i went to the restroom. i carry my phone with me everywhere so i set it on the counter in the bathroom to do my business. well i didnt realize there was water on the counter and when i picked up my phone it was all wet. not completely but alot of the face was wet. i dried it and tried to use it to check if it was okay. well it wasnt. i started freaking out because my phone is like my life. i use it probably like 100 times a day and text my sisters all the time. well the buttons wouldnt work and it was dry. so i get onto yahoo to chat with my friends and tell them my dilema. one tells me to get the blowdryer. shit i dont have one. the other friend tells me to put it in a bag of rice and seal it for a while. i did it and guess what...

IT WORKED, MY PHONE WORKS AGAIN

LOL.. U might be able to pop it in the dryer for a couple minutes. Just put it in something so that it's not banging around in there. :)

Another thing you can do is take the battery out of the back and let it air dry overnight then put it back in. I drop mine in water all the time and that makes it work every time :]

Same here.  One time recently I even dropped it in the washer at the laundromat because I was talking to my sister while I was trying to do my laundry.  Well, when I got home I took it apart and let it air dry and its fine.

I accidentally washed and dried my phone.  I left it in a jacket pocket and didn't realize it.  I took out the battery and let it air dry for 24 hours.  It actually turned back on and worked!  I thought it was toast.  I did have some issues with one of the buttons though and sometimes it would turn off on me, but I could make and receive calls and hear just fine and send texts.  I ended up getting a new phone a few months later anyway.
