They said that even if abit of rain get's in there it could damage it.. So does that mean you can't use any phone in the rain..Can you please tell me where i stand?

Take the phone to any independent, local mobile repair shop and they will check it for you. Normally they won't charge you if they can't repair it. IF they say that the phone does not have water damage, then they CAN repair it and will advise you how much this will cost before doing the work. A re-flash (reinstalling the software) will usually do the trick and costs around 15 pounds(in the UK). You can then claim this back from the people you bought the phone from.

IF, however the phone does have water damage, then your kinda stuffed really and will have to buy a new one.

Good Luck

Water seems to damage the phone, but it can be repaired at a service centre but wud cost a bit, water damage is not covered under warranty. u may also try keeping ur phone in sunlight before giving t for repair....it helps.

Heyi have a sony ericsson W995 mobile it has been working fine all day but now it suddenly says insert correct sim card i dont know why its happened.


hi ive had exactly the same problem as you and when i took my phone back to 02 they said it was water damaged, i have since sent it off for a repair with another private company and they have said they are 95% sure its a software fault due to the way my screen was turning black and then saying insert sim, but i shall let you know when i get it back if it has fixed it or it could be something like the sim card reader but please dont be fobbed off saying its water damage they shall just drop a bit off water on the water tab and say its beyond economical repair

When trying to charge it says must use sony battery and battery is


My girlfriend and i both had this phone and it did the same thing to both of them. I think there is a serious problem with this phone.

Sandys2b. We were both using the batterys that came directly from Sony with the phone.
Our phones also stopped connecting to the network and they wouldnt connect via USB so the update answer by PompeyPirate might not work either.
Mine went first and then hers died about a month latter.
Im pretty sure this is a problem with the Phone. I would contact Sony and complain personally. Even if the phone isnt under warranty anymore it shouldnt break like this during normal use.

My 11 month old chewed on my phone at first I could not see the screen, then when my battery died I cannot charge it not sure if it has water damage or what


You must see a expert, because the phone must be cleaned from water with a special solution and some warm air.
good luck;)

Water damage


Did you take insurance out on the phone? If so they should replace the phone with a new 1 even if it water damage.
