    Heyyy.
    I dropped my phone in the bath 2 days ago. It was in the water for 5 secs. I did everything i was told to do and took the battery out. I have checked the water damage indicator and thats fine. The phone does everything like normal, turns on and the touch screen works fine still. The only thing is the screen is flickering out like crazy. Does anyone know why this is or if it is savable??

    Help much appreciated!
    :)

    How long did you dry it out for? At a bare minimum, 2 days in a box of rice in a warm cupboard is what I'd do. If it's still wet and you're using it now, you could be doing more damage. I'd do another couple of days if I were you.

    There are 2 water damage indicators, one under the battery cover and one under the SIM card cover, are both ok?

    Yeah, could be. It's very strange that the water damage indicator is ok. :thinking:
