    Ok, I did the unthinkable and dropped my Moto Droid in water, immediately fished it out and placed components separately in rice for 2 days. At firsst wouldnt turn on but after placing on charger for a few minutes, was able to access all functions. After activating the phone found I have no connectivity to the wireless system...is my phone salvagable or is there a easy fix I can do?

    Thank you :)

    Welcome to the Android Forums!

    Usually phones that go submarine don't get through the experience unscathed. And it sounds like your phone is no exception to that rule. Since the system board in the phone is a collection of integrated circuits my guess is that your phone isn't easily salvagable. While you might find a business out there that can replace the IC and re-solder the system board, my guess is that your wireless is toast. Give it some time and keep trying... maybe you'll get lucky. Sorry!
