    I've had a T610 for about two months now, and I also use it as my
    alarm by leaving it on the floor by my bed so that the vibrating
    causes a loud rattling noise which rouses me. However the other day I
    also had a cup of water next to my bed and when I silenced the alarm I
    accidently put it RIGHT IN THE CUP! I didn't notice it until I woke
    up at some later point, it was in about an inch of water for probably
    at least 15 minutes or a half hour.

    When I tried to turn it on it just froze on the blue startup screen
    and then turned off after a few minutes and hasn't turned on at all
    since then.

    I called T-mobile and said it "just stopped working" and they said
    they would send me a new one and for me to send it back in the box the
    new one comes in. They said they would check it for damage that they
    wouldnt cover and if they found any signs (of water damage etc) then i
    would be charged a replacement fee.

    My question is about water damage indicators on the T610. How exactly
    would they check for water damage? Is it a litmus test thats
    guarenteed to show up as being water damaged? Or do they just check
    for traces of moisture, and if so, can I just leave it in my car or
    something to fully evaporate all of the traceable moisture? There is
    a round rubber thing covering something on the back that I cant remove
    without taking the phone apart, is that an irreversable water damage
    indicator that they would know if I was to tamper with? Cuz if it is
    then that part was definetly soaked in water for minutes, so I'm
    screwed. Is there ANY way that I can conceal the signs of water
    damage? Is there something that I can just switch with the new phone
    they sent me?

    Any help would be unendingly appreciated

    Thank You
    Tom

    I dropped my 3510i down the toilet once, I didn't power it on but kept it
    screen upwards and left it in the airing cupboard for a few days with all
    covers off and battery sim etc out, I then cleaned the verdigris off with a
    dremil polisher on the contacts and it powered up fine, not saying it will
    work but theres always a chance.

    as long as you don't force power into wet IC's then they usually dry out OK,
    don't use a hairdryer though or water di*****ant as both will damage the
    phone.
