3 days ago I dropped my pre in water. I've kept it in silica beads and rice which seems to work very well. I've been looking for people with the exact same problem as me, but I couldn't find anything really. I've gone phoneless for the past 3 days and it has been surprisingly hard. Today I decided to turn it on and hope for the best and it did turn on and seems to work perfectly well except for the touch screen. It doesn't register that I touch it at all on any part of the screen. I've noticed a bit of moisture in the screen but that seems to have gone down quite a bit (very very slowly).
I called Sprint and asked if I could activate and new phone while waiting for this one to dry out or until I decide to get a new one, but because I have insurance I cannot do that because if this one doesn't end up working they won't be able to send me my pre, instead they would send a new one of the one that I had activated.
I just want to see people's opinions on if I should call now and have them send me a new one for the $100 or if I should stick it out a bit longer and see if it comes to. I don't want to spend that hundred, but it is also a huge inconvenience not having a phone right now.
Has anyone had this problem before?
