    I know that so you didn't need to tell me.....

    I took the mobile to a repair place and they opened it and it was full of white salt and guess what they said that mobile is only good to be used as a toy!

    I recently left my phone in my school bag underneath my drink bottle, the condensation from the bottle slowly trickled on to my phone and somehow got inside. The phone turns on fine and the screen lights and everything except the 7 button is now 1, the 8 button is now 3, the 9 button is 4 and the menu button is now clear... with this mix up i can no longer enter my pin number into my phone as these numbers are needed and the confirm button is the clear button.... very annoying. I have hair dried it for a few hours and left it out in the sun by day and behind the exhaust port on my xbox by night... what can i be expecting to do to get the contact list out of my phone and into a new one? or just make the phone work again?

Samsung mobile sgh e840 fell into water

remove all possible [parts, battery, back cover, sim card, memory card and other things you can open using a special screw driver, let it dry several days or use a hair dryer on cool settings until determined everything is dry.

As for the battery, let is dry under the hot sun before attempting to put it back in the phone.

after that make a simple power on test, if it works, you are in luck, otherwise consider your phone completely water damaged and will not be accepted for repair due to the red water damage mark indicator.

Samsung i727 keeps rebooting

I had a similar problem after my phone got wet. I took it to a phone repairer and he took the 'works' right out of the body, sprayed it with a liquid, presumably some sort of antistatic fluid, dried it with a hair dryer.

Initially it was OK, but problem returned soon after, repairer said it would take him 24 hours, so I presume it needs a more thorough soaking in 'fluid' and a longer time to dry, maybe this information will assist?

use a hair dryer but dont get it too hot
you might have to use the hair dryer every 10-20 minutes depending on how hot it gets
you might even dismantle the phone to dry it out

Dropped phone in water

SIM is probably bad or a little wet. but wait and let everything dry out and see if it works. Mine was soaked and the next morning worked fine. at least you probably won't have to buy a new phone.

Wet phone

yes in some cases. but since you switch on your phone without completely drying it out, some problems may arise... like, auto-shut off, no signal, no ringtone, not chraging and even worse, it might die... in cases like wet phones.. it should be dried out completely to avoid shortages on the electronic components. but anyway... try cleaning it with laquer thinner for a minute or two... this will remove the moist deposits that might have developed on the ic's..

SGH-A701 Mobile USB Cable

G'day,Mate !!...My own personal experience with 'Samsung PC Studio' is ,to put it mildly,obsolete,unless they have updated it.Also,I believe you are referring to a phone that was brand new in 2006.You could TRY using Samsung Kies,but,again,in my experience,that is a colossal waste of time ,also.Have you tried plugging phone in while computer is shut down,then powering computer back up ??
