Re: Dropped it in the Loo!!!!!

Your best hope is to open up your phone, take out the battery, and put all pieces in a ziploc bag with some rice in it.

 

Leave it this way, without opening it, for about four days. Yes, I know it is impossible to be without your phone for four days, but try Smiley Happy

 

After that time, take everything out, and give it a try. Might need charging. If this doesn't work, I'm afraid you've probably got some permanent damage that can't be fixed.

Re: Dropped it in the Loo!!!!!

It's probalby also best to not tell people you're using a phone that was dropped in the loo.  People tend to shy away from this type of individual.  Smiley Happy
