Is that a postpaid plan from your service provider? Try to bring it to a service center. You can have it replaced or fix for free if you still covered with manufacturer warranty or service prover warranty. And the best way you can do with your parents is tell them what the real thing happen on your phone. I know and I hope they will understand that.

It fell in the toliet


well this is a long shot but lets try it..

1.) remove the battery and open up the phone
2.) separate screen circuit boats keypads etc.
3.) use a hair dryers and dry it as best as you can
4.) fill a large bowl with a little rice, place the parts in them and cover it with more rice (the rice draws out the moisture thats the logical reason for it)
5.) leave over night,
6.) dry with hair dryer again in the morning, let cool and reassemble..

hopefully it will work.. (depends on if the circuit board was shorted out or not, it it was its dead, if it wasn't well it will be working now)

ps dont forget to rate this if you found it helpful so it can be of help to others.

My Android Fusion was dropped in water and now won't turn on


Sometimes these things take a while to dry out before they perform the way they're supposed to. Stick it in rice for a few days more. I've had luck with placing it near NOT ON a heat source to aid in drying it out. You don't want to scorch the thing, but leave it in the rice for a couple more hours to days & see how that goes. You should be up and running in no time.

Yo! the drying system you used is not enough to dry it. you need to open it up to the best you can and dry under the sun for hours or under **** heat. that should do. thanks

My samsung impression dropped in water and touch screen broke


I also dropped my Samsung Impression in the toilet, I immediately took the phone took the protective case off, took the battery cover off, and took the battery and my SIM card out and towel dried it as best as I could. Then I sat it on the floor next to my fan and let it dry until I got to my grandparents a little while later and I put it in a bowl of rice, completely covered the phone and battery with rice and left it sit overnight in the rice and all of the next day, so far i've had it on about 20 minutes and have had no problems with it so far, another solution is to sit it in the sun, to further dry it out. Water damage will void warranties on your phone and battery and your provider will know instantly if the damage was water related when they take your battery cover off, there is a small square sticker that when dry and hasn't touched water should be white, but as soon as it comes into contact with water it turns red, there is also one of these stickers on the battery. My stickers were red and after sitting in the rice they look like they got lighter in color considerably, I don't know if that is really possible but appearance wise it looks that way. I hope this helps anyone who has had this problem. Good Luck!

This same thing happened to me, except it was a toilet. My phone gave me the same message for about a day, but I put it under a reading lamp, battery out too, and let it sit for the night. When I turned it on in the morning it worked okay.
