    i forgot my inc. was in my pocket and i went jet skiing.

    put it in rice for over 12 hours.

    plugged it in and it works, turned it on, it works.

    it is realllllllllllllllllllllly slow now.

    water under the screen.

    no vibration at all.

    the 4 touch sensitive buttons are always lit now.

    no insurance.

    now what?

    Thats good, fresh water is ALOT less conductive than salt water and it doesnt cause nearly as much corrosion.

    You are lucky it works at all! Count your blessings.

    Hopefully it will return to normal for you though.

    do you think the four lights on the front will drain the battery very much if they are on 24/7 ?


    and one good thing is my vzw account still says im eligable for an upgrade

    If you can get it working again, just use LEDs Hack to turn them on/off as needed..

    Get 90% isopropyl alcohol. Pour it into a bowl enough to submerge the Inc. Let it stay in there for six hours. It will displace the water and it will evaporate quickly. Should be good after letting it dry for a day.

    How are you eligible for an upgrade already? Didn't you just get a Dinc...?

    That's a good tip - thanks!

    Should probably add for those who may not be smart enough to figure it out like, say, someone who jet skis with a phone in their pocket: Remove the battery first! :D
