Hi,

It's always sad to see such things happen, like what happened to you. First I need to inform you, the company is not responsible for this, so they won't pay for it.

Next, I can move to the following. There's a SIM-card inside your mobile phone. This is the white tiny plastic card, located in the the battery-compartment. (You get a glimpse of it, in the 19th second of your recorded movie)
The good news is, there's a reasonable chance all phonenumbers you stored into your phone, are stored at this SIM-card. This means, you can recover these numbers, by simply plug this SIM-card in either an unlocked phone, or a locked phone, but also under contract of T-Mobile.

Now concerning the mobile phone itself. If you're sure no water came inside the telephone, it means something else is damaged.

The following is important to know. The electronic path inside your phone is like the following :

Connector for batterycharger -> PCB inside (*) -> battery -> PCB inside.

(*) PCB inside, is the internal print covered with all tiny electronical components.


1) Check power-inlet of phone
Try to insert the connector of the charger to your mobile phone. Then try to activate the phone. If nothing happens, the connector might have broken loose from the interior PCB.

2) Check batteryconnection
You probably don't owe an external charger, for the battery. Meaning a device, where you can insert the battery into, to get it charged. In such case you should check friends if they own a similar phone and ask them if they're willing to help you, by simply charging the battery.
After the battery is charged, insert it into your phone and activate it. If it does get activated, it means the connection between the power-inlet and the battery is broken. If it doesn't get activated, there's a broken line, between the gold-alike pins at the battery-compartment and the PCB.

If any of the above mentioned suggestions will make your phone active, grab a paper and pen and write down all phone-numbers. And yes, in such case, your mobile has an interior defect, which should be repaired, if repairable. This can be costly. Sometimes it's cheaper and wiser to look for a second hand, SIM-unlocked similar mobile phone. Than you can still use the SIM under contract of T-Mobile, without any problems.

Why would my floor board on the drivers side have a puddle of water? I did just replace a heater core. i thought that would solve the problem.


So you're saying you replaced the heater core because water was puddling on the driver's side, but water is still puddling on the driver's side? I'm assuming you're in the US and the driver's side is on the left and the heater core is on the right side.
Do you get much rain where you live? Is the vehicle parked outside? Do you notice the puddling more often after a rain? If this is the case, your water intrusion may be because of a leaking seal around the windshield or door. Check by getting the floor reasonably dry, and then have someone sit inside while another floods your car with a garden hose - specifically the windshield and driver's door. Have the inside observer try to catch a stream of water along the edge of the windshield, along the door jam, or along the door sill.

You live for your iPod.
It's what you listen to in the car, as you walk into work or during your classes, and you plug it into speakers for music in your home.
But you just dropped it into a puddle or into a pool or down the toilet.
Now, you're wondering if you can save your iPod

Get the iPod out of the water and dry it off so there's no standing water on it.
Turn it off. Turning it on while there's water inside it will fry the insides.

Place it in a warm, dry place.
Give it a few days off before turning it back on.
Turn it over occasionally to prevent water from pooling.
Some experts recommend blow-drying it for a few minutes every couple of hours with the blow-dryer set on low.
Try putting the iPod in a bag of rice for a few days.
The rice absorbs the water inside the iPod.
See if your warranty covers your iPod. Usually warranties don't cover water immersion, but if your iPod still doesn't work, it doesn't do any harm to check before you buy a new one.

Many people find that at one time or another, an electronic device becomes wet.
Whether it's because of a spilled glass, a rain puddle or pool water, water does serious damage to devices such as touch screen phones and tablets.
Water damage also voids many product warranties.
Use these techniques to minimize or eliminate the damage done by water.
If you learn such tips and act swiftly, you may be able to save your touch screen from serious damage.
Turn off the device immediately.
This vital step prevents the electronics from shorting because of the water, as it cuts off the electricity to the important parts of the component's interior.
The longer the device is left on after exposure to water, the greater the chance of water ruining the circuit systems inside the device, which cannot be recovered.

Remove the battery and any other removable parts.
The object here is to create as many venues for the water to leave the device.
Sometimes this may mean just the battery, which is often sufficient.
If the touch screen device has a flip feature, open it as much as possible.


Dry the outside of the device completely.
Use a paper towel or cloth to pat down the device with care, so as not to increase the amount of water entering the innards of the touch screen.
This prevents water from entering through seams or crevices in the device susceptible to water seepage.


Place the device in a bowl of rice or silica gel packets.
Cover it completely in the rice or silica, both of which are highly effective at absorbing excess moisture.
Leave the device completely submerged in the bowl for at least 72 hours for maximum absorption.


Remove the device and replace the battery.
Once you have left the device for as long as possible in the bowl, it's important to test out the device again.
Attempt to turn on the device.
If it does not power up, it is likely broken beyond simple repair.

Runs poorly when its wet outside


Sounds like your distributor cap is loose. It's likely getting water in it when you drive through water.

1989 golf turns over, new distribitor and starting


Did you use electric grease on these parts, the plug wires,and coil pack need this grease on there. It prevents moisture and wetness from rain getting within the components and causing mis-fire. Did it rain or was it cold outside to produce moisture. Grease is $2 for small pack. I just worked on a 95 VW, changed the cap,rotor button, spark plugs, cleaned throttle body, new air filter, fuel filter. His would run fine, but would cut off sometimes up to hours until the moisture dried. After tuning it up, he no longer has the problem. He goes through water puddles to see if it will quit, but it hasn't yet. Worth a $2-$3 try.

I dropped my LG enV into a puddle of water.


Sounds like you will need a new battery. My env2 would only work if plugged into the wall charger after I dropped it in the toilet. I got a new battery and it works fine now!

Rain drops falling on my phone


My God, you should have gotten a blow dryer immediately and dried the circuits. Not a hot heat, but a steady heat clean clear through. it has worked every time I dropped the phone in the toilet or the dishwater.
