    So my mytouch46 has water damage. I tried the bowl of rice, and tried the light bulb.. but it wont do a thing

    i sent it to HTC and they are saying it will cost 255.00 to have it fixed they claim it needs a new lcd and main bord.

    is there any other way to get this fixed cheaper.. i could buy a new one for that

    ha you definitely could :)
    Idk how much it would cost to fix it. Maybe try best buy mobile

    But you'd probably be able to get a good condition mytouch on Craigslist for 200 bucks.
    There are plenty of them online around my way

    I know it's a bit late to say this now, but worst thing to ever do when electronics get wet is to turn them on. Best thing to do is remove the battery and let it dry out for a few days. It's no guarantee, but turning it on wet is a good guarantee that it will soon be a paper weight.

    A friend ran his new Samsung Galaxy S trough the washing machine, and so afterwards, instead of turning it on, he gave it to another electrical engineer buddy of mine to coax back to life. Well, what did my buddy do to bring it back to life? He waited a few days, and then pressed the power button, lol! And NOT A THING WRONG WITH IT!!!

    Me and my buddy have remarked that HTC build quality seems better than Samsung, but after that "experiment" I won't bash Samsung's build quality at all!
