    Remove battery, put phone and battery in a bowl of rice, try to put both in center so rice will evenly absorb moisture and pray

    The little water indicator on the battery is supposed to be a pattern, white background with red/pink x's criss crossing. If the entire little area is all red/pink they will claim water damage and not exchange.

    Maybe the battery drained when you left it in your car? I don't see how leaving your windows slightly open would soak the phone. Was the inside of the car drenched? Around the phone? Was there any moisture at all on the phone. If not plug it in and let it charge.

    i would also suspect a dead battery.

    You mean you called Asurion? Or VZW?

    Asurion for Insurance and VZW for Warranty, right?

    Do you have a computer with a sd card reader or an externel card reader? Take your card out of the phone and place the two zips from the unroot method onto the card and unroot the phone. It sounds like your phone is slowly coming back to life but I wouldn't be surprised if it bricks on you in a week or two from the previous damage.

    Do you know how to unroot the phone?

    Okay good.. its very simple.
    You're going to flash two zip files through hboot and that's it.
    The first one will downgrade the radio and return the phone back to stock (Verizon pre-installed apps included)
    Its the MR1 RUU.. here is the zip: http://www.multiupload.com/KU7GSF2EY0
    Make sure the whole file downloads.. check the file size when its done downloading.. it will be slightly under 399.35 mb

    After you flash that zip.. delete the pg05img.zip from the phone.

    Next place the second pg05img.zip on the phones sd card.. this will unroot the phone.
    Here: http://www.multiupload.com/26WG1UZCXR
    File should be about 243.82 (kb)

    And that's it.. you need to rename those two zip files to just (pg05img).. you can follow the 8 steps from this guide http://forums.androidcentral.com/thu...tml#post829088 if you're not sure how to flash radios.
