UGH! Sorry to hear that. You could try the old Bowl of Rice method, where you place the phone inside a bowl of rice, or inside a ziplock back full of rice, and then leave it there for a couple of weeks. (the rice is UNCOOKED!!!) Hopefully, that helps. If not, your phone might be toast. Check and see if you have insurance with your carrier, and whether they insure against water damage.

SOURCE: soak on water. now its not working

I don't know if this works but I have heard if you take the battery out and let it sit in a bowl of uncooked rice over night it should work the next day because the rice soaks up all the water. I would give that a try.

I have an HTC (HD2) cell phone that fell in water... it still works but the lcd/screen does not work... I can only receive calls.. What should I do???

I'm sure by now you have gotten the problem resolved with a replacement phone. If not, drop the phone into a bag of dry white rice. Remove the battery and leave the cover off to expedite the drying.

Ihave htc incredible was dropped in a water how to fix it ? and give me the address the shop to fix in houston.

There is no true way to fix water damage. What happens is the battery will short out some of the circuitry in the phone. You can try taking the battery out and putting the phone in a bag of dry rice to wick away the moisture.

in this case don ever try to turn on the phone in this case and the circut will  get jammed. dismandle for the water to get dry. this solution might sound funny but  it will work, bury in the phone in the rice ,as it has nature absorb water , may be bury it atleast an hours time.try with hair dryer to dry the water content and while blowing air keep in distance and try as the hot air will jam the circuit again
