    My phone dived for about 1/4 of a second down the toilet -___-
    this is what i did step by step.
    I grabbed the phone dryed it with a towel
    Remove battery
    dip in dry rice to suck all the moist
    leave it on the sun screen facing down
    now its on rice again.
    *No I haven't turned it on; I dont wanna risk it short circuiting the motherboard*

    what are the chances its still alive?

    no screen damage only problem is that my sim card is wrecked. Am I screwed?

    I found my phone I previously had lost and got a replacement. The phone I lost was blacklisted, now that i found it can I unblock it?

    the esteem has a dedicated "simm" card. one per phone... but i think ive read mixed revies about corprate store being able to replace them or reprogram to your phone or something to that nature. i would call metro and see what they say. *IF* they can do something for you it will *probally* cost you. best of luck.

    Hey bro i went to an authorized dealer and they took my phone, removed the generic sim lol, sprayed it with cold air, placed a new one, programed it on my face and it worked, but the problem is that speakers got ruined. Is there a way to remove them from my old one and replace them?

    my daughter actually dropped my wife's phone in the toilet today... :/ she actually seen on youtube about vacuuming the water out... so after pulling the battery she vacuumed it for about 10min or so and pulled ALOT of water out. now its in a bag of rice till Sunday... hopefully the simm is ok. i think the phone will be fine but im kinda worried about the simm...

    any luck on getting the speakers to work in case hers doesn't?
