Have you tried placing your phone in rice for at least 48 hours to see if maybe it can be salvaged?
Yes, you can buy a phone off ebay or anywhere that doesn't require signing a new two-year contract and use it instead of your washed phone. Just ensure that the phone is Verizon-branded with a clean ESN.
Oh no! That does not sound like fun bbbaoc! Yes, you may activate a device purchased from a third party. Did you have insurance on the device? If so, you may file a claim at phoneclaims.com . Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
