Question about LG RUMOR Cellular Phone

Phone won't turn back on

My rumor was working perfectly fine, i left it in my back for 30, i didn't throw or shake the bag, then wheni came back i took out my phone and found that it wouldn't turn on. I tried removing the battery and then replacing it, but it didn't work. It didnt have a low battery either. it doesnt respond at all when i hold down the power button. What is wrong with my Rumor????!!!

    I have the same prob with my Rumor.

    I charged it for a few hrs yesterday... unplugged it... put it to silence all because i was heading out to work.. it wasnt dropped or shaken and nothing was spilt on it.. and an hour later i took it out to use it and the phone was off... i tried to turn it back on , and nothing would happen... i even went out to my car to plug it in thinking it might reset it.. but nothing... its now today and my phone still wont turn on ..

    Im starting to think that the RUMOR is a peice of $h!2....

    This thing is a piece of junk!! Every phone I've ever had from Sprint I've had to replace two or three times. I'm sick of it.

How to save a wet cell phone

if your cell phone gets wet immediately get a bag of rice and pour it into a ziplock bag or any large sack or container. put your cell phone in and cover the phone with the rice. it is best to use a ziplock bag so that you can shake it up. make sure that the battery is out of the phone and that the back is left off of it. how this works is, the rice gets into the phone and absorbs the water, so that it will not cause the phone to become waterlogged.

Phone Fired

Phone, you need a new one, fatal error, means something inside of your phone is fried. Charger, are you sure the outlet is good for electronics, sometimes the outlet is a dud after a while, even in newer homes, that is a possible problem, or you're getting the wrong charger, sometimes there isn't enough volts, or too many and can ruin yur battery, if you would like the perfect charger, google it, and figure out the perfect charger for your phone.

My lg rumor is wet

Dry it out.
Take the battery out.
First use a q-tip to get visible moisture.
Then put the device in a bag of dust-free rice (buy some quality rice).
The rice will absorb the moisture.
Let me know if this does it.

My phone won't turn on !!!!

you can take the battery and the back off the device and place in completely submerged in a bag of white rice and leave it in there for 1 to 2 days this will help absorb the moisture, this should fix it if the water did not damage the circut boards if the water damaged the circut boards then the device is fried

I got pushed in a pool with my lg rumor

The best thing you could have done is taken the battery out and let the phone dry for few days or take a hair dryer and dry the phone. But sounds like that is to late now, sow at this point nothing can be done with water damaged phone.

This is a known issue with the Rumor. If you take your phone into a sprint repair center or call technical support, they will most likely repair or replace it for free.
