Okay, Please, I've read all the posts and people answer that aren't absolutely sure. I've had my phone for only 3 weeks and it's insurance exempt. (AT&T) See my dilemma? I dropped the phone in literally 4 inches of dog water and pulled it immediately, dried it in a towel , and pulled the battery. The phone, now an hour later, is still not working properly. The battery itself has red x's on it on a white background.. I'm not sure if that's how it was originally. I understand there may be water damage indicators internally.
Yes the red xxx means that you have water damage to your phone. Kill the power and let it dry for at least 3-4 days with out turning it on. It is most likley toast but this is the only thing that you can do.
crackvegas78 is right, thats the watermark for water damage. Nothing you can do as far as trying to hide it, but let it dry out and the darn thing might still work properly. Ive had a water damaged 8700 before and after a day or so all was cool again.
couldnt someone just buy a new battery?
not that i would ever do that, but im sure someone could...
make sure you keep the battery out of it for a few days! ive dropped many phones in water, they are usually cool unless theres power to the phone
