Question about Cell Phones

1 Answer

My Samsung Solstice (a887) cell phone recently spent some quality time in the washer. I removed the battery and sim card, put it in a small container with rice and exposed it to low, radiant heat for 3-4 days to dry out. After charging the battery, it will post to the ATT "5 bars" symbol and then shut down. If I leave the charger connected, it will post to the "5 bars" symbol and freeze. Aside from returning to ATT for service eplacement, can anyone offer additional suggestions on what to check? Anyway to default the phone without access the interface? Thanks

The problem that you currently have is not the water damage but the damage caused by the salt that has gotten into the phone. Specifically, water is not a conductor of electricity (though everybody thinks that it is). It is the salt in the water that actually conducts electricity. And, the salt from your clothing was removed by the water in your washer and deposited into your phone. (It only takes just a little bit of salt to conduct electricity.)

Now that the water is gone from your phone, the salt remains inside it. And, there is no way to remove it from the phone's circuit board.

Long story short - even it your phone began working correctly today, there is no guarantee it would continue to work the same tomorrow.

Bottom line: Go get a new phone. You'll be glad that you did in the long run.
