Question about Samsung SYNC SGH-A707 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Sync A707 in water

I dropped my Sync in water for a few seconds. The 'water damage' dot did not change color. I let it dry out but now when we power it on, it says no service and has a picture of the phoneset with a red diagonol line through it. The SIM card works great in another phone we have so it wasn't damaged. The screen lights up and the phone still has sound, just can't make/receive calls. Any suggestions or is it all washed up?

Did you dry the phone completely? If not here is the procedure to take out all moisture trapped in the phone: Dry the phone, battery, any accessory, etc. with cloth and wrap each piece, phone and accessories, in newspaper. Place a few handfuls of rice into a plastic bag and then place the wrapped phone in the bag with rice. The newspaper wrapping avoids direct contact of rice with your phone because the dust from the rice can get into the small areas of the phone. The newspaper and rice will absorb moisture. Leave it there (with the bag open) at least 24 hrs.

The white tab in the back changed color to red is my phone dead or is there a solution? what made it change can I fix it?


Nah your phone is not dead........it color changed from white to red because your phone was dropped in water or it got wet.
You should change battery and see if your phone works else do this:
  1. Take out the battery of your phone.
  2. Leave your phone in free air for a day or two.
  3. Put the battery back in your cell.
  4. Good lUck......!

Low battery and SGH A707 on display


If there is no other damage to your phone ie; dropped, water damage, etc, then the problem probably is the battery. If you have insurance with your current carrier, then you can get the phone replaced. This is usually a $50 deductible. Also, there is usually a 12 month Warranty Repair/Replacement option. If you purchased the phone from a retail location and still have the receipt.
