    Default LG G2 won't turn on - power button not functional

    So I dropped my phone in water, it was fully submerged for a second or two. At first the screen wouldn't turn back on but the phone was still on, after about a half hour in rice I was able to get the screen to turn back on so I could actually power off the phone. At this point it seemed to be working fine but just to be safe I left it powered off in rice overnight. Fast forward to this morning and I can't get it to turn back on now. If I plug it in the LG logo comes up then the battery showing it's charging (and still holding a charge just fine) but no matter what button combination I try nothing happens...

    Any advice? I have the Best Buy protection plan but there's a $150 deductible and I'll end up with a refurbished phone, I'd rather not lose all the data (pictures, files, etc) on the phone...

    Keep it in rice a few more days. Unfortunately the phone is probably fried (water on electrical surfaces) but hopefully you'll be able to get your data off.

    Wow, I'm surprised with the Best Buy protection plan that it's still $150 for the deductible was that a one time fee for that protection plan or a monthly fee?

    I noticed that any time the phone is powered off and placed on a wireless charger, it will power itself on! I don't know if that's the case for all qi enabled phones, but could be worth a shot for anyone whose power button experiences failure.
