Question about Audiovox CDM-8915 Snapper Cellular Phone
The phone dropped into a puddle of water. I later found it and it worked for a few hours. The next morning, no life. I tried recharging battery. After inserting the battery, the vibirator activitated and stay activitated until I pressed the "ON" button to turn on the phone. Now there is no response. How can I access the phone numbers? I don't care about the phone. I care about the phone numbers and not losing them. Will new battery work? Since I see that this model is discontinued, are batteries still available?
The solution: I left it alone for 24 hours.
Here's what I did:
I plugged the charger in and allowed it to charge overnight. No lights or screen or screen appeared but I kept it in anyway. After charging, I removed the battery and cleaned all the contacts with Isopropyl rubbing alcohol. When I reinserted the battery, it vibrated intensely, which indicated a strong battery. I did not turn the phone on right away but waited a day. When I turned it on, it responded like nothing was wrong. Perhaps the phone reset itself. That’s how it behaved.
In any event, I have my phone back and it’s working well.
To summarize what happened:
The phone drops into a puddle and is partially submerged for an hour or so. I find it, dry it off and make some calls, with no effects of any kind.
The next morning, it fails completely. No response whatsoever. I recharge the battery and that doesn’t work. What did work was to remove the battery and clean all the contacts and reinsert it and leave it alone for a day.
Lesson learned: record all phone numbers before I lose them forever.
Also, get a better holster so that the phone is secure from falling out.
Thank you very much for your support.
