    Well I decided to stay home from work and relax by the pool and eat... Until a bee came and made it his mission to attack me. After failed attempts of trying to just blow it away, and smacking it away... He came back to sting me.. Moral of the story as I tried to hit him away my phone flew into the water.

    Now my phone was only in the water for about 3-5 seconds, and as soon as i took the phone out it was still on, then out of no where it turned off. But as soon as i took it out of the water i pulled the battery out and sim and micro sd card out right away and stuck it in a bag of rice for 2 days. Now i tried to use my phone and when i press the power button a gray battery pops up with a loading circle that does not move.

    Is there anyway to fix this or is the phone dead?

    P.S I fully charged my phone since being in the water. Also, if i try to turn it one sometimes it gets super hot, and keeps making the vibrate as if you were turing the phone on.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you so much!

    What you should have down was pull the battery out and place the phone in a bag of rice for at least two days

    Shame, i was going to come in here to tell you to put your phone in a bowl of rice but you've done that.

    Sounds like your phone is 100% screwed, time for an upgrade!

    Try a different battery. It's possible (cross your fingers) that it's the battery that died, not the phone.
