You could tell her she is SOL but to try to save the phone by removing the battery, replacing it, then using a blow-dryer to dry up all of the excess moisture built up in the phone. (Takes about 1-2 Hours.)

She will have to replace the battery though the battery is probably shot.

I saved my Samsung a500 before doing this. (299.99 Cdn. value)

yah you can save it....if your quick about it, but i asked her what kind of condition the phone was in, it was still assembled and she could see water floating in the screen, so i assume by this womans umm.... common sense definency Razz that she probably left it in the toilet for a minute and then left it to dry assembled

Actually, one of my coworkers found a phone just off the shore of the local river. He took off the battery cover and let it sit to dry for about a week. It works fine. It depends on how you handle the phone after a catastrophe like that whether it will work again. Yeah, the liquid damage indicator will be red, but the thing could still work. Very Happy

That being said... if my phone fell in the toilet, I believe I would have to leave it there. bleck

Who knows, but seriously it should work for any model of phone. (I sat in a hot tub with the phone in my shorts pocket for 1 minute + and then it worked like a charm) Very Happy
