Searching SVC I dropped my phone and the battery popped off and a little snow got on the back of the phone. It turns on and everything works except that on the top it says searching SVC and there is not clock. Is there a way to get my service to get working again? Its been about two days and I don't want to have to use my insurance to get a new phone...

    In addition to searching for service (SVC) a no CDMA supported message is displayed when you try to make a call or send a text message.

My center button does not work when pressed. How


Try putting the phone in a bag of rice for 24 hours. It's a popular fix for water-damaged electronics. If that doesn't work turn the phone off and take the battery out. Then use a Q-tip to drip a few drops of alcohol on the button, and put your mouth right on the button and blow into it. I did that once with an iPod.

When I plug my charger in there are no bars going up and down on the display showing that it is charging. This is after I accidently plugged in the wrong charger and heard a pop. The phone shut off after...


I would suggest just using the phone until you wear the battery down and then put it back on the charger and charge it up over night and see if it charges. If that works then probably the pop you heard was the part of the display that shows the bars going up blowing out but at least the phone will work for you.

DROPPED PHONE NOT SURE WHAT I NEED


You can replace the lcd screen and digitizer.

Its about $40 US on ebay. Try searching treo 750wx screen/digitizer/touch screen, etc. Also i tried searching treo 750wx but it didn't work, I suspect the 750 to be the same as the wx, but you might wanna make sure with the seller incase (Ask seller a question link is on the listing, or click their username and go to their profile and click on contact)

Dropped it now says searching svc


Have you removed the battery more than once?
Try removing the battery and the flash memory card.
Put the flash memory card back in and then the battery.
The problem should be solved.
