dropped lumia 520 in water and it wont turn on

One week ago I dropped my phone in fresh water and it was completely submersed for about 2-3 minutes. I put it in a bag of uncooked rice for a couple of days and when I took it out it worked perfectly fine. However when it died I could not charge the battery and still can not. It will not turn on because it is dead and I can not charge it. Please help!!

Re: dropped lumia 520 in water and it wont turn on


While the phone may have worked for a bit it would appear corrosion has set it causing the phone to no longer work. There is nothing that can be done. Unless you have insurance for this the phone will be lost. Repair will most certainly be more expensive than buying a new phone.
