Question about Samsung SCH-u520 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Steam Damage I had my phone in the bathroom, and there was a lot of steam. At first the screen wouldn't show at all; the next day the screen works, but I can't dial out or receive calls. Nor can I send or receive text messages. The message that I receive when trying to dial out is, "call failed try again." Any suggestions...

Water and steam is the worst enemy of all phones and mobile devices. You've most likely got severe water damage to the phone caused by the steam.

Never take a phone in the bathroom with you, for any reason. Water kills phones

I went swimming with my iphone in my pocket. Now the flash is on, and none of the buttons are responding.

That's because the phone is about to die.

Water, in any form. Is a cellphones worst enemy. Even steam from the shower if you have your phone in the bathroom with you.

Your screen is shorted out. Could possibly be from water damage or otherwise. Even water from steam could be enough to affect it. If you have insurance on your phone, get a replacement through your cellular provider.

How can i fix my Samsung Slyde (Rant)

Just make some rice, and put it in a ziploc bag. Then take out the battery in your phone and put your phone without the battery in the bag. The steam will help get the water or tea or whatever out. I've done this before and it helps a lot!

It doesn't have a water sensor.
Steam can cause it damage if it somehow gets inside the phone.
