    Default Water damage, couple buttons won't work.. any fix?

    I dropped my 8100 in the toilet a week ago. I let it dry out and reloaded the OS. It works fine now except the "TY/2", "GH/5", and the back buttons won't work. Is there anything else I can try to fix it or do I need a new phone?

    If the phone was immediately and properly dried out I'd say if
    after a week it is not functioning properly a new phone is in your
    not to distant future. Do you by chance have insurance?

    If the buttons dont respond in another few days, try taking apart the phone and then drying it. There are some great instructions of how to take apart your phone on many websites, just do a search.

    If that dosen't work I recommend you get a new phone, hope you have insurance!

    I am thinking you are probably going to need a new phone soon. That may be the harbinger of things to come.

    No insurance. What's a good price to ask for it if I put it on ebay and said the "TY/2", "GH/5", and "Back" keys don't work?
