    Stupidly, yesterday I decided it would be a fantastic idea to bring my phone into the bathroom with me while I had a soak. I got a text message, and while replying, the very bottom of my phone went under water for like a second. I didn't think anything of it at the time, but when I got a call today, the other person couldn't hear me. I don't have a clue about phones, and couldn't find anything about this problem, so it seems like most people aren't total idiots like me and take their phone into the bathroom with them... Any help would be really appreciated, thanks! :)

    Hey alice!

    Not sure, as it seems you've had your phone on and it's been working. Here are some steps (for if you get your phone wet)... I don't know how well this will work, given that it's been a while and you've used your phone...

    Hope this helps... let us know how you get on!!

    I did basically the same thing last night and now I have to shout to be heard. Everything else works though. Any ideas?

    I plugged in my charger and started playing high graphics games and the phone got heated. I don't know what happened but it worked.

    I just played really loud music and when it got to the point where I could see the water on the speaker I sucked it out with the vacuum

    Hi....i had the same problem. My speaker got muffled after water entered it. I played a music and held a small 'Silica Gel' packet (usually a small 'DO NOT EAT' packet found inside packages when you buy an electronic item) on top of the speaker....in about 5 mins, my speaker returned to normal....

    Mine actually got soaked in the rain, and my speaker was really "damaged", to fix that, I removed the back cover of the phone, played some heavy bass music, took some earbuds and cleaned the speaker. this fixed it, and now its completely fine. Hope it works for you

    In my case, i was video calling my friend and was teaching her how to make soup, i was showing how much water should be added and then the water got spilled on the lower part of my phone. What i did was so hilarious and easy. I turned on the music at high volume and inhaled at the spear creating a vaccum. I did this several times and after approximately 30 seconds of doing this, music got clear and it was back to normal

    Wheneever you get an electronic wet you should always put it in a bag of rice. You could have possibly prevented this. Anyways.. it is not too hard to replace. You just need to purchase a speaker assembly.
    Hope this helps
