Re: dropped into a glass of alcohol

I know it sounds ridiculous, but take the battery out and leave the rest of your phone to sit in a dry place for a few days. you can blow dry it as long as you dont heat it up too much - use a cool setting or jsut be really careful. ive dropped the exact phone in water before and this tip from a friend worked. also, if this does not work, you can go to verizon and they have some tool to retrieve your contacts. i think it costs like $25 or something, but they should be able to retrieve numbers without your phone working, atleast this has been my experience. good luck!

My SCH-a930 won't charge. I still have battery life, and the phone works fine, but the phone won't charge. I have tried multiple wall outlets. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks!

Please, try using another charger with the phone.
If the problem continues, get a screw driver, unscrew the phone and bring the charging port out. The charging port is at the tail end of the phone.
Clean the surface of the panel where the charging port contact the panel with a spirit and allow it to dry for 30 minute. Couple back the phone and i am sure the charging phone will work fine.

my sister dropped her phone in the sink b4 n i think she was experiencing the same problems although i can't remember this that well as it was a while bk. she bough a new 1 n after a while it did start working suddenly.

my mates dad experienced it once after he dropped his phone in a cup of tea. he managed to take it to a place where the phone got fully cleaned out. It then worked fine n now my mum has it after he got a new one. He said the only problem he was having was his internet popping up now n then but it has stopped doing that now. If i was u i would maybe try this out n see if there is a place near u that may be able to help u out

good luck
