Question about Samsung SGH-a437 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Water damage, uncontrollable vibration

I've recently jumped into a swimming pool while my samsung SGH-A437 cell phone was in my pants pocket. After about 15 seconds I realized my cell phone was still with me, and quickly got it out of the water. It was vibrating furiously, and the screen was white, so I took out the battery and sim card. After fifteen or twenty minutes of air drying, I sucked out some of the remaining water and placed all the seperate pieces in a bowl of rice. It's been about 5 hours and the phone still just vibrates when the battery is put in. What do you suggest I do?? Any information will be greatly appreciated.

Leave it in the rice for several days, if it still doesn't work then it's shot.

I also have a Sony Ericsson K850I and dropped in the water.


you can take the battery and the back off the device and place in completely submerged in a bag of white rice and leave it in there for 1 to 2 days this will help absorb the moisture, this should fix it if the water did not damage the circut boards if the water damaged the circut boards then the device is fried

normally the phone is no longer any good after water damage like that, but you could take the battery out and let it sit next to some thing worm for a day or two to make sure it completely dries, then put the battery back in. se if that does the trick.

Good...Vibrations?


Hi, I'm a cell phone techician and I see this everyday. If this happened within 24 hours DO NOT put the battery on the phone, take it out immediatly. Samsung for some reason can withstand liquid (some) unlike Nokia and Motorola. If it happened something like two weeks ago or it was a salt water pool then forget about it because it will have to see someone like me and I'm in Canada. But if it was relativley recent damage in a standard chlorinated pool I recommend putting it in a long sock and spin it over your head as fast as you can this procedure will force the water out. Don't let go or you'll injure yourself or innocent bystanders. This is very important...Hold it very tightly.
After 30 seconds of spinning place phone in hot sun for a few hours. Try the battery the next day. Really though you should remove the four screws that hold the back, take it totally apart and spray canned air into it.
