my lumia 820 fell out of pocket and landed in water. I have dried it with a hair dryer and it booted up once but soon shut down and now it was died. Any suggestions? I do have an extra battery from mpj which I've heard would add a little power. Should I try the new now or leave the phone in a bag of rice first?? And I have insurance on my phone, can I get a replacement phone?

1st thing dont switch it on
then separate each and every part and keep it to dry
take out battery , sim , backcover and whatever that can be removed
then if you have hair drier then dry them with it
and make sure not a single drop of water is there evev deep inside
atleast keep it open for 4-6 hours
u think its ok for an hour but not a drop should remain inside
now when if ur phone is dry then try switching it on
it will work
if any problem arises contact me or nearby service centre

Regards DZ
