    Hello!

    I'm posting to see if I can get some help as to which parts I may need in repairing my 920.

    A few months ago, I dropped my phone in water. After a few minutes, the display went black and the phone turned off. After turning it back on, the display was still black; however, I could still receive notifications (auditory) from facebook and other apps that received info through Wi-Fi. Immediately after, I took apart my phone and let it sit in a tub of rice overnight to draw out the water.

    A day later, I tested my phone a few times to see if it could receive/make calls (using the voice commands). Nothing. I could still unlock my phone because the touch screen was still receptive.

    My guess is that the LCD screen/connectivity to it is damaged, along with the main antenna (cellular antenna). Wi-Fi still seems to work as well as speakers and digitizer.

    So my questions are as follows:
    1 - What parts do I need to replace in this phone/is there a way I can more accurately discern this?
    2 - Should I replace these parts, or just buy a new phone (I'm planning on switching to T-Mobile soon, so I would be getting an unlocked phone, probably still a 920)?

    Thanks in advance!

    Contact your phone company and aware them, they could give you some help? or even order some insurance and wait a month and take it in?
