    It might just be a coincidence. That is the message you'll receive when the phone is receiving an OTA (over-the-air-update). I would just turn off the screen and let it sit for awhile.

    I dropped my HTC One in the toilet, and it's not working at all. Does anyone know how to make it work again?

    It was in the toilet for a second or two. I then took it out immediately and turned it off, wiped off any excess water, and left it in a bowl of rice, rotating it every few hours, for 48 hours. I have tried to turn it on this morning, but have had no luck. The screen is just blank, and the phone does not react when I put the charger in. The led green light doesn't come on to say it's charging, and neither a laptop of computer are recognising it when I plug it in. Does anyone have any idea what's wrong with it, or is it just completely dead? It's a new phone on contract, and I really can't afford to get a new phone. Or does anyone have any idea how much it would cost to repair it?

    Any advice or tips would be really appreciated!
    Thanks :)
