    I am sorry you are having issues. What do you plan to do when and if you open the phone? My advise would be to bring it in to be fixed

    If you don't even know how to open the phone, I do NOT recommend trying to fix water damage. My advice is taking to to a local repair person who can repair water damage. Most computer shops can.

    That's not what he/she meant. They mean open messages. Keep in mind that many who come here are from all around the globe.

    Wet phone ? 1. Do not turn it on. 2. Put it in a bag of rice and leave it there for at least 3 days.
    You can still try the rice. Most likely you will need to have a reputable repair shop look at it.

    How are you sure they meant that and not how I interpreted it? They said messages and calls don't work, and how do I open my phone?
