    Phone got wet

    I dropped my droid x2 in the toilet last night grabbed it out and it was still on and looked fine but I ripped the battery out and towel dried it. I put the battery back in and tried turning it back on. It starting up and the first screen came up but got stuck on that screen figured it needed another minute. Took battery back out and put phone in bag of rice overnight. Now the phone turns on but screen stays black, is there any saving the phone or is a trip to best buy in my future?

    The first mistake was trying to turn it on, this opens up the power circuits and is what fries the phone when its still damp. Rice or anyother method may not work, I would try insurance.

    If you try the rice, it will require at least 3-5 full days. Sorry bout your luck :/

    Thank you all. It was late, my infant is teething so I was not thinking. Yes I have best buy black tie protection and yes water damage is covered. Just sick of losing all my apps and games every time I get a new phone .
