Question about Cell Phones

Wet phone; incomming calls cant hear me..

I dropped my phone into a glass of lemonade, I got scared so I took it out as quick as I could and went straight to the bathroom, took the battery out, and tried blow drying it. I turned it on and if worked fine, but when I got incomming calls I would answer and they weren't able to hear me. I tried blow drying it again and when I tried turning it on it said "USB Download Mode" on a white screen in black text. What do I do??

If you took the phone apart and let it dry but its still acting funny you very likely fried the computer board inside the phone. If the phone was on when you dropped it in liquid you probably did. Also, the lemonade having sugar has likely caused corrosion inside the phone. you could clean the inside of the phone with alcohol and see about getting it to co-operate, but be careful and keep yourself grounded and leave the battery out when you clean. You might be s-o-l

Please help - Nokia 2280


Absolutly thats the reason you can not hear calls. You could try removing the battery and switching on again but it sounds like the connector is faulty. if not try resseting the phone to factory defaults failing that you will have to take it to a repairer or if it was me I would just buy a new phone! did the phone get wet? I have seen this happen on Nokias after they have got wet and after leaving it a week or so the problem went away

Dropped cell and people cant hear me


I had the same problem as the person in the original posting -- I dropped my phone after which callers could no longer here me.  So I tried dropping the phone again, as the original poster suggested, and afterwards the problem was solved.
