Thank you .... I am hoping it can be fixed as it has pictures and files i need access to. Just worried as it seemed like there is definitely significant damage. I am not familiar on fixing phones but would like to learn how to. Any particular replacements parts i need (LCD, BATTERY, etc.?


Neil ChoyAxxx Clavano , It is always wise to get a new battery when water damaged has occurred, other then that it is pretty hard to say. When cleaning the phone scrub/rub gently as you do not to dislodge delicate components from the boards. Good luck with your device.
