I droped the phone in water now my camara won't work


I never tried this but have read that for phones in water, you remove the battery and cover the phone with rice for about 24 hrs in a warm room. The rice is suppose to help dry out the water. Like I stated I never had to try this so not sure if it will work. If internal damage is already done you may need professional repairs.

Water damage


1. Remove the back cover of your phone. To do so, you will have to press down on the silver latch while sliding the cover off toward the top of the phone.
2. Remove the battery from inside of the phone. Be sure to place it somewhere where it will not be damaged. Locate a silver hatch; this is where the SIM card is stored.
3. To undo the silver hatch, slide it in the direction that says "Unlock." Then, flip it upwards so that only one end of it remains attached to the BlackBerry. Carefully remove the SIM card.
4. Replace the SIM card after a few seconds. It should fit back into its place in the exact same way you found it. Lock the silver hatch by laying it back down over the SIM card, and then sliding it the opposite way you had unlocked it before (to the side that says "Lock"). Put the battery back in as well (by fitting one end at a time). Replace the cover (make sure the silver button latches).
5. Turn the phone back on. The "SIM Card Error" message should be gone.

I have recharged the battery and it was working fine prior and now it is askin me to 'insert SIM'....when the SIM card is already there??


Sound like your sim card is faulty and needs to be replaced. Or you can try pulling out the battery and removing the sim card and leave them out for 2 hours and then reinsert the sim card and then the battery. I have the same phone and it is from Indonesia but works fine.

My mobile is damage by water how can i solve this problem


Get the Phone Out of the water. Do NOT power it on.
This may sound too obvious a step but a few extra seconds that your phone spends in water can reduce whatever chances you had of saving your phone.
If however your phone has spent more than a few minutes in water try removing the battery when the whole gadget is under water itself .
Powering up the phone when it is wet causes the maximum damage to your phone.

2 Remove the battery and SIM card
Water + battery is a bad combination for your phone. Remove the battery as soon as possible. SIM card too must be removed immediately as water on SIM cards may erase all your contacts stored in the SIM.
3 Dry the phone as much as possible
Try and pat dry the phone, the battery and the SIM card. Using a paper towel is advisable for removing water quickly.
4 Metciulously Disassemble the phone completely
This is one of the most important steps on your phone's path to recovery. If possible take your phone to a local mobile phone servicing shop and ask him/her top disassemble the phone completely for you. Make sure the circuits are not powered up by the shopkeeper.
If you are worried that disassembling the phone will make your warranty/guarantee void you need to know that phones come with Water Damage indicators which change colors with the slightest hint of water. No phone warranty covers water damage.
5 Dry all the phone components with a dessicant
After disassembling the phone immerse each component in a bowl of uncooked rice / silica gel packs. These dessicants absorb water effectively and draw out water from all nooks and corners of your phone. Heating / Vaporising the water is a bad idea cause that would leave salts on your phone's circuitry and cause corrosion and eventual death of your phone. Hence drying with uncooked rice/silica gels where water is removed by absorption is the best option. Leave it there for a couple of days.
6 Show patience and let every component lie under a table lamp for a couple of days
Now your phone is almost on its way to complete recovery provided you show Adequate patience. You may keep the bowl of rice under a table lamp for this duration . Changing the rice /silica gels though not a mandatory step, can be pretty effective and useful.
7 Assemble , Pray and Switch on!

Water damaged and it works but for some reason it keeps turning off, is there a way to fix water damage?


Hello my friend,if the board and chips are oxidized now there is nothing you can do anymore.You should immediately open your mobile unplug everything and try to dry everything with a hairdressers gun and leave the battery and the Sim card out for some hours when you drop it into the water.

Keeps saying 'please insert sim'


Your SIM card is not being read anymore due to a number of reasons.
Try rubbing the SIM card with a clean smooth dry cloth and then insert it again.
If that doesnt work, your SIM might be damaged, take it to your network provider and they will replace it, hopefully with your same phone number.

Note: 1.air blow should be done on the circuit at low speed and 10 cm distance . ok
