You're lucky your Pre was the only thing killed.

    Yea, right, and it's all because of global warming to huh.

    Does anyone know if water permanently damages an lcd screen even after dry? I hate to drag this out but the phone is alive just the screen is gone, it lights up faintly. I'm gonna end up keeping it for parts like the battery, and back cover.

    Naw, I can't find anyone talking about it really. There aren't any stickies about problems or anything. There's MUCH more drama to read here.

    When your phone gets wet, take out the battery ASAP (without turning it on, even to just check it). Then put the phone in a bag of rice or silica gel to let it dry. It will work fine after that most of the time.
    That is what I did and it has worked fine every since. Did the same thing to my Grandson's phone and it worked for him also.

    However, keeping a few whales captive, in order to educate and introduce their existence to the masses of people who would not otherwise even dream of the creatures, in my view is possibly acceptable.

    It's something to be there in person with these whales. As a child, petting an actual whale did amazing things for my love of animals. .
    for the record, Orcas (killer whales) are dolphins NOT whales. I do agree with your point though

    OP: you're kidding yourself if you think that you were sitting in the second row with your Pre in your shirt pocket, and only the back cover got wet
    Me and the family went to raging waters last year and wife made sure we were in the "electronics destruction" area for the Orca show. At that point I placed my Pre in the cargo pocket of my shorts and turned away from the dolphin any time it came near, splash or no splash. At the end of the show all of us were soaked from head to toe, but my phone survived.

    *Update...ok so i've had my new replacement pre for a day or so now and i noticed something pertaining to build quality. On the old phone i always noticed a gap all around where the battery door meets the phone. I never thought much of it it wasn't huge. Now on the new phone there is a tight seal where cover meets the phone. Perhaps this tiny gap is what killed my phone because really i didn't feel it got wet to the point it would break. The build quality is different between the two...even the keyboard feels different on the new one as i compared the two. Hmm just made me wonder about quality control, this might have not happened.
