Default No!!!! my beatiful phone :( :(

Well today i went to the public swimming pool with my mom and my sister, and i took my cell phone. i put it in my pocket. and im like "ahh, ill take it out when we get there"

so we got there, i completely forgot about it, and went straight off the diving board

5 seconds later i noticed i forgot to take my phone out of my pocket. It was off though, so no electrical shock XD

do you think if i let it dry off it will work again?

Maybe. You might have to replace the sim card.

I've done that many times. My phone is alright, for the time being, but still has some major problems. It won't change my settings, and the network band is f*cked up, so it'll show different providers.

Just make sure you dry it out completely before you turn it on. It'll probably still work though.

I've seen phones dropped numerous times and ones that were run over by cars and they still worked...well....still sent and recieved calls anyway. I don't think a dip in the pool should hurt it as long as you dry it out completely.

It's because of many things. Water damage is just one of them.

Leave it for a good few days, before you try it.
