Angry I dropped my phone in the pool?

I know everyone has been saying motorola is not good with water compared to others (well, i know no service is, but espefially Moto) I dropped my new razr in a pool, full of people swimming (and a bunch of little kids, so the water probably wasn't clean. EWWWW!!!) anyway, i realized it immediately and took out the battery, SIM, and an extra memory chip I bought. I was in Arizona, so it was HOT. I kept it outside for an hour or two, open and drying, and i shook out some water. Later on, i went up to my room and spent 10 or fifteen minutes drying it off with a hair dryer. ( i hope that wasn't bad) I let it sit for a while, and started using it at later on that night. Everything seamed normal, except for one thing. The 6 and the 9 buttons wont work well. I have to press it five times to make it work (horrible for texting fast). What do i do now?

Hi ,

Most networks wont entertain water damaged handsets due to the internal circuit board becoming iodised with the water.

Your lucky it still works really.

Either put up with the issues or either buy sim free, used or wait for your upgrade.

Paying to try to resolve this wont be worth it in the long run.

Next time keep away from the pool or use a skin like mariners use to protect the cellfone.
