IPhone :: Dropped In Water Now Phone Can't Ring + Vibrate But Screen Is Blank

It was for about 3 seconds and I quickly took it out n switched it off.After a while i switched it on, it was working fine but had a bit of lag, so i switched it back off. After another short while, i switched on again, but now:

screen is black, although under certain angles i can see the Time display phone can ring + vibrate, but when i answer i cant hear anything, but d caller can hear my voice tried to switch it off and on but still the same

how do i do the rice trick?what else can i do?how do i find the Water indicator (that supposedly turns pink), i know its at the speaker n usb dock, but im not sure which one is it?

IPhone :: Dropped In Water / Everything Works Except Wake Up Screen
Everythiing on the phone works fine so far, I have access to a compressed air generator so I immediately blew the water out.Anyway, when the phone is locked the "wake up screen" pops up (just like if I pressed the top power button) every 20 seconds, stays up then goes away. This kills the battery in about 4 or 5 hours. It does not do this when charging, so I assume it is not a short in the switch. I read on another forum about someone else having this exact problem, but they did noy have a fix.
Can someone please:
1. Let me know if this can be fixed.
2. How to go about fixing this.I think taking it to the store would be a waste of time as I'm sure the "water sensors" are red.I've heard they make you buy a new phone, is this true??
3. If it is fixable by a third party company or Apple please recommend one.
4. If anybody has had this problem and had it fixed, how much did it cost?

IPhone :: Dropped 4 In Water, Sound And Touch Works But Screen Is Black?
I dropped my Iphone in the sink for about 2 seconds, then took it out and dried it off. It all worked fine but a few minutes later the screen went black. I put it in rice for about 2 and a half days, and the sound and touch works (I can even unlock it and answer the phone), but I see not a thing on the screen. It's plain black. I still have it in the rice, but is there anything i can do to save it?

Nokia :: 5610 Xpress Music - Phone Dropped In Water / Middle Button Not Working
last week, I went to the beach with my friends and unfortunately, my dear phone was dropped in the water T.T. I tried to take the battery out immediately. 2 days later, I put the battery back, it seems to work well EXCEPT the middle / main button T.T. I tried to hit that button hard but it's not working.

Samsung :: U900 Soul - Phone Dropped In Water / Button Keys Not Responding Properly
I accidentally dropped the phone in water and I managed to dry it out and get it working. It was working fine apart from the occasional weird button behavior where either the buttons didn't respond or they did respond but not how they normally do. Even though it was working fine suddenly when on a call the other person on the phone cannot hear me but I can hear them perfectly. I tried using the voice recorder but it does not record anything.

IPhone :: Dropped 4s In Water, The Microphone And Speaker Are Muffled?
the speaker works as long as it isn't turned up to the highest option, then it becomes crackly. The microphone works, but you have to talk softly or be far away for the sound to be unmuffled. Headphones work perfectly. I know Apple doesn't cover water damage, so what can I do to save my phone?

BB 8830 WE :: Phone Will Just Vibrate But Wont Ring?
When I try to holster my phone it goes into standby mode. If I get a message, it will just vibrate,but won't ring. When I receive a call, it will give a quick vibrate (maybe a tenth of a second), and won't ring.This happened with the OEM OS, and all the other hybrids. Out of the holster it rings fine. I uninstalled Berrybuzz bcause I thought it might be the root of the problem to no avail.

Samsung Galaxy S II :: Can Phone Ring But All Else Silent Or Vibrate?
Is there a way to have the phone ring and have all other notifications either silent or vibrating? I use my cell as my primary phone and it would be nice while I sleep to hear the phone ring and not hear all the other sounds the phone makes for notifications and stuff like that.

I had a blackberry prior to this phone and I was able to easily do that with sound options. I don't see the same option with this phone.

HTC :: Touch 'vibrate And Ring' Vibrate Stays On For Too Long
this is my first WM device! I'm loving it. I just want to know if any of you have encountered this. If you set it to vibrate and ring, while ringing the vibrate will stay on for... 5-6 seconds? That's way too long, and I prefer a traditional on off on off pattern. Is there any way to change this? I'm not really sure on which program to use to play with the registry (although I don't mind at all trying).

BB Storm2 9550/9520 :: Edit Phone Profile To Vibrate And Then Ring?
How can I set the profile for phone calls, to vibrate and then ring. I had it set like this on my old Curve. The way it is now, it rings and vibrates at the same time. Having it vibrate before the ring is helpful during meetings.
