Did you find the two screws located under the two round rubber dics located at the back top of the cell phone? If you remove the two round rubber discs you will find screws under them. Once you remove those screws you will be able to remove the one plastic frame. Be careful, there are two places that you will need to disconnect in order to completely remove the insides from the frame. If they are not disconnected you will not be able to remove the main brain of the phone. The 1st one is easy to see but the 2nd one is not as easy. You must be careful anytime your working with these components.

Dust behind clear screen over main screen, SGH-A707

If you are not good at repairing small electronics (taking apart and putting back together) then get a pro to do it. I found out the hard way that trying to pry off the cover around the display (with the tools that came with my replacement LCD for my samsung a737 ) is the wrong way.

Under the battery are two very small screws that come out. Remove these first, they should be very short and have a very wide and flat head.

Then with the phone closed pry up the bottom the of the top slider and then push the slider top down (some what hard to pry and slide). You only need to move it about 1mm then you should be able to lift the whole top off. This is the hardest part of the job.

Then disconnect the the ribbon cable by flipping up the little gard along the top of the ribbon at the connector. This guard rotates to a 90degree angle straight up. Be carefull to not rip appart the flip connector. then slide the ribbon out.

Then flip the top over and remove the now exposed screws on the top along the edges.
and now you should be able to figure everything else. Three more ribbon connectors to the display to finally remove.

To put back together again just do the same in reverse.

I charge $30 plus shipping to do this for you. Plus the cost of the screen if you don't have a new one to ship and use.

Looking towards the future with you,

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..

Drop in water, can't get case open

Bought a SGH-C417 off ebay. The flash cards are compatible. (I'm using my wife's now.)

I never got the back off the darn thing, but it's dry. No condensation on screens. When I put the battery back in, the light behind the keys light up and the ******** goes off. This continues until I hit the power button, Phone will the go dark and be unresponsive.
Call me redneck suspicious, but I suspect this is planned obsolesce. I know there is a moisture detecting strip in the phone to indicate if it has ever been wet. I just wouldn't be surprised to find a planed fail point built in also. I've use way to many electronics after a good dunking to believe that EVERY phone that ever gets moist dies.

Sorry for the delay in response...

Once you have the screws loose, they sometimes stay in the housing. That is okay as long as they are loose from the mounts. The top half only has the two screws. Once they are removed, work the seem with an opening tool, or strong fingernails. Gently pry open the seem and it will start to pop apart. Be careful in the top half because the flex for the surface buttons is attached to the outer housing or front cover. Once you have it snapped loose, you have to unplug that flex, so be careful not to tear it.

Once you have the phone apart, brush all components (not the screen) with 91% rubbing alcohol and a soft bristle brush.

If you want, you can also try leaving the phone in a bag of dry rice. That tends to wick out moisture quite well.

The only risk there is that once moisture is in a phone, it tends to start corroding. It can work fine for quite some time, and then have problems later so I recommend disassemble and clean if at all possible.
