Can anyone help me out with this predicament?

The bottom 3/4" of my phone (standing up) took some water the other day, I removed the back cover and 4 screws and try to pry up the back however, it was stuck somewhere along the usb charger portion so I couldn't completely remove it. I blew it out with compressed air and then proceeded to let it sit in a bag of rice on the window sill for a day. What I have now is everything boots up/loads fine except Internal Storage. It's completely missing which in turn makes it so a lot of my additional programs and what not don't function, anyone have any recommendations? Could me of prying on it somehow disconnected it, I have no clue if it's some kind of plug and play type of drive similar to an SD card or what (this is a Sprint model) Thanks for any help!

You can try this hotfix, maybe it is as simple as this. Can't hurt to try.

It's the last DL I believe.

Re: Can anyone help me out with this predicament?

Thanks for the link but sadly that didn't take care of it either If I felt that resetting the phone back to default settings then reloading the Fearless ROM would help i'd try that out next...

Looks like a failed cause, guess I will try to find a used phone cheap. I like the new avatar pic Carla 0_0!

You never know but after you let it sit and dry out for a few days it may work again. Let it sit and dry out and don't keep turning it on. I have heard of others having success with water damage by letting it sit for a while.

Re: Can anyone help me out with this predicament?

I've heard that a few times as well, I was able to actually get it completely apart and hit it with the air compressor for several minutes to try and dry out everything on the lower end and had no luck on this, I need the phone to be on and functioning due to many reasons so I can't keep it off. Can't win them all I guess!

You could try carefully heating it up by blowing hot air on it with a hair dryer.

Re: Can anyone help me out with this predicament?

when mine got wet it needed a hard reset before it was normal again. Have you tried that.
