    So, my son decided to take my phone for a swim with him in the bath tub last night and despite me catching it within 5-10 minutes of initial dunking, my phone had all kinds of weird issues. So I followed the alcohol bath guide and now my phone won't charge. It'll display the bolt of lightning, then a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark in the battery, then turn on and die at 0%. It's also tried to boot into downloading mode a few times. Any ideas?

    Welcome to Android Central! Unfortunately, there's probably not much else you can do, since the water has already done its damage. Although the S5 Active is IP67 rated, it's still possible for water to get in and do damage if the integrity of the phone's casing has been compromised (like from previous trauma), or if the charge port cover was loose or open.

    I would add one thing B Diddy.. If the charging port cover is/was secure, I would give Samsung a call about this and put it on them. Let them come up with a reason why they shouldn't fix this phone they advertise as water resistant.
