Phones Don't Like Water!

Bring your phone in immediately, as in now, not later.. the sooner it can be opened and the power source removed the better your chances of your phone surviving. 
If your battery is removable take it out as fast as you can.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SWITCH IT ON TO SEE IF IT STILL WORKS. ACTIVATING WET CIRCUITS WILL DESTROY THE PHONE.
IT'S TOO EXPENSIVE TO TAKE A RISK.& THE RISK IS GUARANTEED YOU WILL DO UNREPAIRABLE DAMAGE.

 


If you are on this page then sadly you have probably dropped your phone somewhere you shouldn't have, it could be in the toilet, bath, pool, washing machine or any number of places resulting in your phone no longer operating.
The sooner you can get your phone in for service the better. Minutes, hours, not days!
 Electronic equipment does not like water and unfortunately the odds are your device will probably no longer work again or if it does it may behave erratically and over days/weeks will possibly fail.
That said there are many phones getting around that have taken the plunge and lived to find Pokemon again.
Things to consider?
How much of the phone was submerged and for how long.
Good Outcome; if only the bottom of the phone was wet and it was only in the water for a second then there
 is a reasonable chance the phone will survive to see another day provided it is brought in for service immediately.
Bad Outcome; the phone is dropped in a bath of water or worse salty water and submerged for a lengthy period of time 20 seconds or more and it was not brought in for service until the next day.

A LOT! of time will need to be spent properly drying your phone out and fault finding problems so there is a $85 wet phone service fee, in the event your phone can not be saved this fee will only be $35
If your phone can't be saved and by chance your data can be retrieved the fee for doing so is $65
(no warranty is provided for water damaged phones, if the phone begins to show signs of erratic behaviour unfortunately the damage is beyond that which can be repaired. if this occurs we recommend baking up your data ASAP as it may fail unexpectedly) 

Hopefully you will have a good outcome and you will be one of the many lucky ones.
