Dropped in water

That's really messed with water + electronics. Better visit a mobile repair center before you damage your internal chips. ;)

Droped the cellphone in water

Did you dry the phone and battery completely? If not here is the procedure to take out all moisture trapped in the phone: Dry the phone, battery, sim card and any accessory, etc. with cloth and wrap each piece, phone and accessories, in newspaper. Place a few handfuls of rice into a plastic bag and then place the wrapped phone in the bag with rice. The newspaper wrapping avoids direct contact of rice with your phone because the dust from the rice can get into the small areas of the phone. The newspaper and rice will absorb moisture. Leave it there (with the bag open) at least 24 hrs.

What does it mean when my phone is saying it needs intial programming. i droped in water but it still turned on and seemed to be be working then it started saying it need intial programming on the screen....


when a phone drops in water it needs to be serviced before use, cause the water has damaged the phone board.

service the phone so that the water in the phone will dry up completely.

Have a nice day.

I dropped my phone in water but icked it up right

Remove the battery and immerse both the phone and the battery in dry uncooked rice for three days. This is the only cheap way to dry everything out. After the three days put the battery back in the phone and it should be OK

Dropped phone in water now phone will not turn on

Take the phone apart and slowly dry. I droped my phone in the lake and dryed on the dash of my vehicle for a day or two. then turned on the phone. Never try to power up a wet phone, let it dry COMPLETLY first. Good luck.

Voicemail connects in the middle of a call, even

This happens sometimes with all phones but not usually. When you are in a call, accidently your keypad or touchscreen may get pressed by your cheek and so it may automtically dial to your voice mail. The dropping of calls occurs whenever you are in a call at weak signal locations. If the problem still persists, then backup all your data and contacts from your mobile and go for a master reset. This should help you in most of the mobile related problems.
I hope this is helpful to you

No reception on cell phone "No Network Service"

You need to check the RF. The RF is a component that pick up the signal. It is usually placed on the upper portion of the phone where there's a small exhaust so that the RF could pick up the signal better.

Once the RF gets wet, the component might become defective.

You need a phone tech to check or change the RF.

Have a great day!

My w580i walkman was droped in the pool

Best thing to do right away is remove the battery and put it in a bowl of dry rice if you have any to start absorbing the water out. Not sure about the left front button coming out. Good luck.
