    I let it dry out for a few days, turned it on, and it worked fine. The phone got wet last Wednesday. I turned it back on Friday and it worked great until Sunday morning when I woke up and it was dead. I turned it back on and the phone started up with the motorola logo. Then the screen went black and the hard keys on the right (back and search) stayed lit up. The screen would not come on. I put it in rice overnight and turned it back on. It came on and worked for about 15 minutes before doing the black screen thing again with the two buttons lit up on bottom.

    Is this something that can be fixed? Does anyone have any advice?

    Hello and welcome to AF. :)

    Sounds like the insides must've gotten corroded from getting wet. Water and heat is not good for any devices and you'll probably have to either get a replacement or send it in for repairs.
