Question about Samsung SCH-u740 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Wet/broken keypad my phone got a little bit wet last night. i initially thought it was fine until i went to use it and realized that none of the keys work (except for the side buttons and one button on the bottom left of the keyboard.) Is there anything i can to dry it more/fix it somehow or am i screwed? I am fairly upset as I just got this phone a few weeks ago.. Also does this phone have an indicator for water damage like i know the razr does? There's a little whitish/grayish square under the battery that i think might be this. hopefully there isn't and they will fix/replace it for me? please help me it will be much appreciated. thank you....

The phone would have to be replaced. Depending on your carrier it may or may not be a costly process. I know Verizon will generally replace a liquid damage phone at not cost if it is still in warranty, but will make you buy a new battery if that got fried.

Since it sounds like your phone powers on alright, then I'd say the battery is probably ok.

The sooner you bring the phone in the better, because the phone may eventually die completely. You'll want to bring it in before then so they can try to save your data on the phone.

The charge adapter maybe faulty.
If your cell phone is a few months old, then it would be still under warranty. Take it back to the place where you purchased it and have it repaired or replaced under warranty.
