    I think he was being sarcastic.

    By the way, is it completely dead?

    Put it in rise for 48 hrs, it works with drinkable / demineralized water

    I know this is "after the fact", but get your electronics nano-coated to waterproof it. I did that with my 950XL. I haven't dunked it in water to test, but it has taken some splashes just fine.

    Which brand etc? I doubt such things work well for phones with removeable backs etc. How will the naano coating be maintained when you take off the case and put it back?

    Yeah, I should have made it more clear. Its completed dead. Screen went green when I pulled it out of the sink then went dead. Its in rice now but doubt it will work hence the replacement order.

    How exactly do you nano-coat something?

    Give your old Nan a spray can and let her have at it?

    blow dry it too to really get it deep :) water shouldn't have gotten too far.... and your battery should be pulled already before you took that picture.

    Battery will probably die however phone should be fine after some time. Give it a try, you may get it working again...

    If u can get it somewhere to a ultrasonic tub, it should be fine. The battery is as good as dead however.

    If you have packets of silica jell its probably worth putting it in a sealable tub with a few, if not the rice trick could work, but make sure its dry, after a day or two, put the rice in an oven to dry again, nothing to loose.......

    Also worth taking out SD and sim cards and of course the battery.

    It is clear that the OP is getting a free replacement and isn't bothered much with fixing the current phone.

    The nano coating must permeate throughout the interior not just exterior case. In factory settings, the device is put into a mist chamber to thoroughly coat all.parts.
