    Hey, the other day some water got on my HTC One X, while it was on. You all know the how the HTC One X's battery cannot be removed, which in turn, I tried to turn it off, but I was only able to restart it by holding the power button. As we all know, turning on a phone while it is wet is a BAD idea, but in this case, it was unavoidable. I put the phone in rice, but all the phone kept on doing was restarting. After about 10 hours (or so) in the rice, the phone died. The last activity I saw was when there was a red flashing on the top of the phone close to the front camera, then everything stopped. I can't upgrade for another year, so I'm pretty much stuck with it until then, but I was wondering if there was ANY way to fix it. Please let me know any and all possible ways. Thanks and cheers!

  2. I moved your question to the forum where your phone is discussed.

    There's not much you can do unfortunately. You could call HTC/your network, they might be able to fix, but it would probably cost a fair bit.

    Have you tried to charge it again? Has it been in the box of rice since it was wet or have you not bothered since it switched itself off?

    Maybe try this site out? They do free repair estimates, you just have to ship your phone. HTC One X Repair | Cell Phone Repair Specialists

    Water damage seems like such a sketchy topic, like it does a million things to phones that no one can figure out, haha.
