This is a common problem at the repair facility. (Coke, tea, coffee - you name it.) The problem isn't getting the phone to work correctly again - it's keeping it working correctly after being disassembled and thoroughly cleaned. Specifically, when even a small amount of salt contaminates the circuit board it causes short circuits on the circuit board. (Salt does a very good job of conducting electricity) And, once contaminated with salt, a circuit board will usually continue to be problematic even after being cleaned.

Long story short, even if your phone were to begin working correctly today there is no guarantee it will continue to work correctly tomorrow.

Bottom line, replace your phone. In the long run you'll be glad you did.

What is the difference between hot chocolate and cocoa powder?

Although the two names of drinks are used interchangeably, hot chocolate is a drink that's either made from real chocolate melted into milk or with packet hot chocolate powder. Cocoa powder is unsweetened and needs to be combined with sugar to create a sweeter drink.

In general hot chocolate is richer and sweeter than hot cocoa.

Are there alcoholic drinks with chocolate in? I love chocolate but I don't enjoy drinking so much, so I thought a chocolate alcohol drink might be a solution.

Chocolate liquor is a really popular drink that is alcoholic but easy for most non-drinkers to tolerate because of it's strong chocolate flavor. It's also really good for baking and in chocolate mousse.

What is the difference between Diet Coke and Coke Zero?

: Diet Coke and Coke Zero are both low caloric soft drinks that contain no sugar. Diet Coke was first introduced to the market in 1982, while Coke Zero is pretty new and came out in 2005. Even though both products use the same ingredients, the main difference between them is the proportions of the ingredients. That's the main reason that they taste differently

My wife really loves Coke and drinks it everyday. We have just found out that she is pregnant. Can she still drink Coke or does she have to cut back?

Drinking Coke while you're pregnant is fine, but doctors do recommend limiting the caffeine intake per day to maximum of 200 mg. This means that she shouldn't drink more than a bottle per day.

My son has spilt coke on the laptop 1 key not working O

If you spill drinks on a keyboard, something is bound to break, and apparantly only the O key did... The only way to fix it is to get a new keyboard, I'm sorry. I hope this helps, Yannick.
