I dropped my phone in water and got it fixed. but after that i couldn't get any service i was trying to fix my phone when i broke the piece that connects the antenna to the motherboard thing and now i can't get service. the piece looked like copper, and was held down by a little screw where the antenna goes inside the phone... is there a way to fix this without taking it into a store?
Your best option is to take the phone into the store for the following reasons:
1. Although they sell parts for phones, depending on how old the phone is the parts may be harder to find.
2. It's cheaper for you to take into a store and have them do the work for you. As long as you have "insurance" through your carrier they should be able to cover most of the cost. Of course this does not always include labor. So check with your service provider first before going down to the store.
3. It's less time you have spend trying to figure out how to fix yourself and thus causing you less heartache or from further damaging your phone.
I hope this helps. I can answer questions in detail depending on your service provider and Good Luck!

My guess is that the soldered piece broke? Does it look like it can be re-soldered? If so, do u have any friends who are good with a soldering iron? You can buy one for under $10 and fix it yourself, but if uncertain, check the following:
Radio Shack ... some have techs to repair in house stuff
Jewelers --- find one who is not busy at Christmas
Mr. Fix-It ... almost every mall has one.
You will most likely end up soldering the wires together to make contact. Keep the colors the same ... black to black ... white with a stripe to white witha stripe ... you get it? If you still have the female end of the wires that attached to the connectors you can test to see if it works by directly wiring to the female connector. If it works, then you can try a more permanent repair. If not, speakers are not a ton of money, unless they are huge AR15's or something nice!
I almost forgot the ABSOLUTE BEST place to take them ... go to any Automotive stereo installer ... most of them know how to solder and repair speakers, I would guess. Try that one! And if ALL of the above Fail! See if you have a ham radio seller in town and see if he'll do you a favor. Back also to Radio Shack or anyone who sells speakers.
This can be complex, and easy, depends on what you can do yourself. If you have an old phone, you could plug it into the socket the provider is offering the service. If you get a dial tone, you know the line to that point is working. If the phone you are using now, is in another room, please do the same there. If you are sure the line is working, the phone has to be tested. Make sure the cable you are using is correct. Make sure the phone you are using is the right one. Don't try to connect a digital phone to an analog line.
These things are the first things in my mind. I write them down in less then 2 minutes and can keep you working and checking for at lease half an hour.
My router extender did that once. A simple powered down and restarted fixed it. I hate to sound like Comcast which always tells you to do that but it's worth a try with wifi and bluetooth. Also obvious but check the battery, when it gets low enough the signal gets weak before it actually stops. Cellular telephones do the same thing. A low battery can affect signal strength.
I had the same problem as the person in the original posting -- I dropped my phone after which callers could no longer here me. So I tried dropping the phone again, as the original poster suggested, and afterwards the problem was solved.
there is internal damage an easy fix is to plug it into the car charger and it will only work on the charger you should have let the phone sit out and dry with the battery detatched. my phone did the same thing about 3 months ago. if that doesn't work you'll need a new phone
i called sony ericsson & they told me i should try buying a dcu-60 usb cable to hook up the phone to the computer & use the update service on the s.e. site. we'll see if it works, i just ordered one off the 'net for about 7 us dollars. worth a try for under ten dollars.
You broke the Microphone curcuit. In most cases where you drop a phone , you will have to replace it as the cost of parts and labor almost alwaays More then a new phone. But see what type of repair your Provider gives?? Good Luck
