    did you have insurance? If not, you won't get anything, accidental damage isn't covered. And you can EASILY tell on those phones if they have incurred water damage. Try cingular, you might get lucky.

    I washed my sanyo 8100. I let it dry and poof, 2 days later it turns on and I can call. Funny thing is the outside screen works, but the inside screen doesn't. Camera works also.

    Take it apart, and let it air dry.

    I've washed mine before.

    maybe it's just me, but who the hell puts electronics through a washing machine? unless your phone was guaranteed to make calls to a depth of 100m, i would think you'd keep it as far from water as possible.

    Wow. Always amazes me to hear these stories. I would be so pissed if I did that.
