Try this :
This works on most mini electronic devices like cellular phones and degital cameras etc .

it sounds crazy .

Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY
.

Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points (shiny, goldish) on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.

Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.

It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).

beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.


This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick.

Calls going out and coming in, cannot hear caller


was this a refurbished phone? first thing you can try to do is connect a headset into the phone and see if you and the other party are able to hear each other. if so then there is a possibility that the phone has water damage. another was to check for water damage is to remove the battery and check the white sticker under the battery, if the sticker is red instead of white then that phone is deemed water damaged.

Says fully charged while charging but dies when i unplug it


Hi,
Take the battery out and check the end of it for water damage-there should be a white sticker with pink/purple marks. Also check the bottom of the phone for the same kind of sticker. If that sticker is even slightly pink/red its water damaged, the more pink/red the worse the damage. And water damage often comes simply from your hand perspiring while holding the phone. Thats the problem 99.9% of the time.

I used to have this phone. Best tmobile phone ever. Take off the battery hatch and battery, and look for a round red sticker, if you don't see one, Don't panic, That means your phone isn't water damaged. If you find a white round sticker, hen your phone isn't damaged by water and it is an internal problem. Get me back ~miikee

How will i know iF G1 phone has water damage


Remove the back cover and battery of the device. Set the battery aside and look inside the phone. In the lower right hand corner near the gold prongs there is a circle sticker. It will be on the side wall of the device. If the sticker is red, your phone has been exposed to water damage.

I cant read my screen.


What I've seen on those indicator stickers is that they are white and when your phone has water damage, red spots show up on the sticker. maybe that's not for all phones.
but hope that helps.

Cell phone won't turn on


Hello,

It sounds like possible water damage. On most phones you can remove the back cover and maybe the battery. If it is water damage you will see a red dot on the inside of the phone. I hope this is helpful, Let me know.
