Question about T-Mobile Dash Smartphone

My son dropped his T Mobile phone into a swimming

My son dropped his T Mobile Dash phone into a swimming pool. I have removed the battery and SIM card, and have dried the phone out over a few days, first using a hair dryer then letting it sit in an air conditioned room. The phone appears physically undamaged, but is there anything else that I should do before trying to power it on?

I would go for it. Battery may be discharged. It is either going to work or not. Water damage is the worst thing tp predict. Circuits may have corrosion unless you have looked at the boards.

I recieved a T-Mobile Dash by HTC and i placed my step son's sim card into my new cell phone to see if it works. i got my own sim card and i removed my step son's sim and placed my own in the cell phone...


Have you tried to go to cellular phone repair shop? You said it was replaced by your cell service provider and still didn't work into your mobile? I suggest you to open line your cellphone, tell the technician to open line so that whatever simcard you want to be place on your mobile it will recognize or read it.

Please rate me!

This same thing happened to me, except it was a toilet. My phone gave me the same message for about a day, but I put it under a reading lamp, battery out too, and let it sit for the night. When I turned it on in the morning it worked okay.

T-mobile Dash Won't start


This will fix it:

Turn the phone off, remove the battery for a minute. Replace the battery.

Hold down the right and left soft menu keys simultaneously then press the power button for a couple seconds and release. Keep holding down the soft keys until the hard reset screen displays.

The reset screen will tell you to press 'Send' to reset or any other key to cancel. Press and hold 'Send', which is the button with the green phone on it. After a couple seconds, the device will start to do its thing.

This will take some time so be patient. It will have a question or two as it goes through the process. Answer.

Don't worry, you won't lose your branding (e.g. if you are a tmo customer, you don't lose the ability to have myfavs and your phone keeps the tmo branding/settings).

Wet dash


There's still water in it. You'll need to take the battery out and let it dry another two days. I got my phone wet one time and it took a week before it worked again.
