Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3
I'm told i have moisture in my phone. battery does't last long . put in new battery. same problem . how do i get the moisture out. shall i put it in a warm oven?can i soak it in a can of alcohol? can i use a can of autu dry gas?
Sorry to say but whatever you do, that phone will never work properly and one day it WILL stop working. Having moisture in your phone is like throwing a radio in the bathtub. It is fried.
I would highly recommend while your phone is still functional (if it is not sim card based) you back up your data (phone numbers and calendar etc) to a desktop or laptop computer.
If you have insurance on the phone most cell phone company providers cover 'physical damage'. So you can place a claim for a new phone. Otherwise, if you purchase a replacement phone from your cell phone company you will have to renew your contract.
You can purchase a phone at risk through outside parties such as ebay, craigslist or a private seller. But before you purchase the phone make sure you have a way to verify that:
(1) The phone is compatible with your service provider
(2) The phone is clear of any past due balance and hasn't been reported lost or stolen. You can do this by calling the phone number into the cell phone provider and providing them with the ESN or IMEI.
For future reference, although seldom mentioned the most common cause of 'moisture' damage in a phone comes from body perspiration that builds up over time. Generally this comes from carrying the phone in your pocket. So purchase a protective carry case -the GPS cases and from the boating stores and the Body Glove Neoprene ones are best.
Hope everything works out for you.
