I last week upgraded my galaxy S2 to ICS via Kies. It seemed to have worked and had no initial issues. The first issue I had 2 days later when I swiched to text input mode of swype. The input of letters started flashing between letters and numbers preventing me from typing anything. The only way I can stop it doing this is to changeit off swype and then back. Will be ok for a while then will do it again, also freezes for a minute or so when changing mode from swype when it starts playing up.
2 Night later I went to sleep and had a glass of water on the side table, I woke up to find that a little bit of water had splashed onto the side table and my phone was sitting right in this tiny little puddle.
Initially the phone seemed bad, the sound was cracking and the charging was not working correctly. I removed the cover and the inside was a little wet, I lift the battery and there was a little bit of water there too.
I pulled the battery, sim card and SD card out and placed it in a bowl of rice. I tried turning it on a few hours latter and it was alerting errors saying "Charging paused, Voltage too high". So I placed it back in the rice and left it all evening and over night, I turned the phone back on as I needed the sat nav to get home and it seemed better, sound was normal, just showing that voltage too high error occasional.
Today is the day after and its still popping up that message. Seemed worse when charging via USB. When that message does display, the locked screen shows, something like battery 55% which I think only usually displays when phone is on charge.
So my question is this, I'm assuming the issue is water damage, but do you agree or could it have been the upgrade?
It was such a tiny amount of water, is there anything I could do to improve it further? Leave it rice for longer in a warm place, was just sat on a table, room temperature last time.
