Into my toilet. Just now. I got up to put my hoodie back on and the phone fell form the pocket into the toilet.

I got it out thankfully. The only issues seem to be in two buttons. The A key and the left button on th QWERT keyboard. otherwise it APPEARS to be ok.


Does anyone know if theres a way to fix these keys/whether it will ficx itself over time? the issue is that both just seem to issue nonsense when i hit them. A sends one of each letter in that row and the menu key jumps around a bit but otherwise seems to work fine.

I have the RANT if it helps anyone

If you have a bag of dessicant (like in a shoebox) you can put the phone in a jar with the packet. It will basically suck out all the water.

Take out the battery and let it dry for 48 hours, even if it seems to work ok the water might not have reached the sensitive parts yet. Heat isn't that great of an idea since you might end up burning or melting something.

Kind of like a prostitute. It will literally suck all the moisture out of it.

You strip down when you drop dueces?


Anyways, the most important thing is to take out your battery and your SIM card (if you have one)

Did his phone ever stop working for her again?

my friend just used a hair dryer after she dropped it in a puddle and it came back to life.
try that before you put it in the oven
#17
if you can, open it up (back plate) then set it somewhere were no one will move it, maybe in the sun, and towel dry it softly,then let it dry for like 50-60 hours


it happened to my mp3 player

i like sprint. ive had AT&T and it sucks, T-mobile gets no service in my area. basically where i live unless your verizon or sprint you get ass service. and sprint gets better service because all the schools wireless phone and walky-talky systems are on sprint wirreless servers so sprint gets service everywhere in the high school


i took it apart as much as i could. the back, the abttery, and the phone are just lying on my counter. gonna dry out for a day with no poewr and hope it works. if not, i think we got insurance on the phone anyway.i already tried drying ti w/ a hair dryer but it didnt seem to work.

a recap on the issues seem to be 3 or so keys on the QWERT keyboard that, when you hit them, do a slew of stupid ****. but otherwise i dont see any problems with the keys

the charger port doesnt work. the speaker is crackly.

we have insurance so we'll probably just replace it and transfer all my info over.

i get ok service unless im in a building. dude, texting in the school for me is a bitch. i have no bars at all if i'm in a big building. the other thing that also sucks about sprint is that picture mail is an add on, and so is internet. jesus im tired of pm messages when i can't look at them!

We should start a group for people who dropped their phones in the toilet.

I did the same thing about two days after I got it last year. Brand new BlackBerry Pearl 8130.

God I know I always get that problem.

God forbid your phone ****s up and sprint doesn't have sim cards so you have to buy a 200 dollar phone.

Also, there customer service is ****.
They've hung up on me twice already and all I want to do is activate my new phone.

The only problem is that the nearest sprint store is 30 minutes away.

mine is the local mall. albeit the local mall is a hike of a walk and requires going on a highway. the nearest verizon store is almost literally up the street but it happens to be a very, very, VERY long street.


but both are definitely accessible
