As a follow-up to my own question. I guess for newer phones, the battery
and the battery inset will have some 'dots', that have a checkerboard
coloring. It seems that if one of the dots becomes a solid color (alas, as
in my case) it is indeed toast. This info is from a Japanese co-worker, so
some things may be lost in translation.
Living and learning the hard way...

Subject: (keitai-l) keitai no swim
Yesterday, I tried to give my keitai a quick rinse cleaning, while it was
still on.... Hmmnn. Not a good idea. Hindsight is wonderful isn't it?
Anyways, today when I can actually get it turn on, it gives it's rendition
of an epileptic fit and then turns off. Is it toast? Or is there a way for
it to become a happy camper again?
