Question about Lands Phones
Won't turn on I dropped it outside in the rain it didn't fall in a puddle what do I do?? I left it for hours to dry I did everything that I'm supposed to do in case it was wet you know but to no avail! My phone hasn't turned on in the week . i have very important numbers in here, how can I fix this possibly myself.
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.
