Question about Cell Phones

Water damage Hi there, I have a NEW sony ericsson W585 mobile phone which had a tiny amount of water drip on it (from drink bottle) i am told it's worthless & I have to buy a new phone as i am locked into a 24 month contract & am only into the 2nd for the next 22 months, will be paying off a phone I can't use....I have tried to dry it slowly, haven't switched it on till dryed out...did all the right things..screen works, but some of the bottons don't respond on both the slide out section & the to section..but some do work! the people at 3 mobile said it had water on the "Mother board" & wasn't worth fixing. Is this true? Can you tell me if i can in any way fix it myself...if not, is it possible to replace the whole mother board & is there an approximate price for this? ..

Did you take insurance out on the phone? If so they should replace the phone with a new 1 even if it water damage.

Water Damage

Hi, I would ask them to show proof of the water damage for starters! Check your reciepts of purchase for the serial number for the phone you paid for, and check that number to the one they show you, to keep them honest,(there are dodgy repairers out there) and if its the same place you bought it from, yet the serial number is different, they are pulling a swifty!!
These phones are quite reliable.
PS: Has a friend maybe spilt a drink on it at a party or such, but not telling?
Failing that, speak to consumer affairs.

I think you should take your Phone to an outside outlet as these Sony People would have told you about the Termination of the Warranty of your Phone. Now, if you want to get it corrected, better contact any outside-people, but ensure that the Person is expert-enough to deal with your Phone. As far as the Service is concerned, NOKIA IS EXCELLENT. A brother of mine faced the same problem (Sony Ericsson K530i) , his phone got in touch with water and the Navigation Keys stopped working. On the Service Point he was told about the Termination of Warranty and he took it to an expert outside. He got his phone repaired at a price much lower than that told at the Service Point.

So, better take it to somewhere else, BUT TO AN EXPERT ONLY, NOT TO A NOVICE.

In future, don't go for any Sony Ericsson phones.

Nokia really DESERVES the success that it has.
