What can you do to fix a Kyocera Slider that was soaked in water?

My wife dropped her very new Kyocera slider into water, for a second or two.

It works, but not the screen.

The company tells me the phone will corrode, even though I've already replaced the battery. Does that sound plausible?

Also, does anyone own one of these phones, and might they be able to help me figure out how to program it?

Thanks.




Water damage, is what brought me to this message board. I dropped my LG6000X phone into water for a second or 2 last night. Although it had a leather covering on the phone, I immediately ripped the cover off, took the battery off, blew the water off and dried it off quickly.

My cousin's husband completely submerged his phone in the toilet and left it off for three days. He is still using it to this day.

A coworker completely submerged her's in a toilet as well and the phone was shot. I think your best bet is to let it sit and dry for a few days and check on it afterwards.

Anyone have any ideas on the LG 6000X being submerged and whether or not it will recover?

Thanks in advance,
M


YOU HAVE WATER DAMAGE WHICH MEANS THE WARRANTY IS VOIDED...WHY ....THIS IS BECAUSE THE ENGINEERS CANNOT TELL HOW FAR THE WATER HAS PENETRATED INTO THE DEVICE...AS FOR REPROGRAMMING THE DEVICE...GOOD LUCK...YOU'LL NEED A NEW CHIP...PST SOFTWARE...DATA CABLE...A COMPUTER..AND THE BRAINS TO RUN ALL OF THIS EQUIPMENT...JUST BUY ANOTHER OR CALL VIASTAR COMMUNICATIONS OR UNIVERSAL CELLULAR WHICH DO WATER DAMAGED DEVICES AND OUT OF WARANTY PHONES
