If the phone was completely saturated then you will have this problem for life. if everything works properly on the phone, it might just be the radiation signals that are constantly sending and recieving that is making the noise. it sounds like it is your speaker for the phone. which has been wet but not yet dried, i suggest buying a phone screw driver, wich is one size to take apart, and blow dry the speaker and all components inside. if this does not work, you can either buy a new speaker from www.ebay.com.au or see a phone speciallist.

    if the phone will not pull apart, by unscrewing the screws,place a small blade in between the connection of the phone cases, make sure all screws are off, are the screws under the battery also taken off, search completly before you do this. as you will completely wrek your phone. please reply if you need more help.

Is question has become synonymous with the reliability of a certain cell phone provider, but problems hearing people on the other end of the phone aren't limited to cell phones. Static, hissing, echoes and other noises coming from a phone line can cause equally frustrating problems for people chatting on landline phones.
People who still connect to the Internet using a dial-up connection also may feel the effects of phone line noise, which can interfere with their online surfing. Some modems are so sensitive that even the tiny beep caused by call waiting can terminate an Internet session.

Several things could be causing your phone line noise.­ As the frequently asked questions section of any telephone or Internet provider's Web site will attest, unwanted sounds on your phone line pose a common problem. Thankfully, clearing phone line noise on your landline isn't hard.
As you might guess, the first step in clearing phone line noise is to pinpoint the culprit. Faulty house wiring, long cables or the phone line itself could be indirectly disrupting your conversations. Other culprits include the following:

  • Weather: Precipitation can leak into phone lines and cause disruptions. Lightning, even at a distance, can damage the connection.
  • Electrical interference: Power lines, radio or television transmitters, transformers and other electronic devices may cause noise on the phone line.
  • Other phone devices: Fax or answering machines, other phones and line splitters -- devices that allow two phones to fit on one phone jack -- can cause phone line noise.
  • DSLservices: The high-frequency signals coming from DSL (digital subscriber line) devices sharing the phone line can create problems for other technology connected to the line.
A good rule of thumb is that if the noise only happens occasionally, then weather is to blame. If it's a constant annoyance, then it's probably another offender. Learn what steps you can take to find and stop the annoying noise interrupting your phone conversations on the next page.

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!

I was running in the rain and when I tryed to chrage it it didnt


I dropped my at&t phone in the lake a while back, I took the battery off and stuck onthe dash of my vehicle to allow the sun to bake the phone for a day or two. It still works to this day. Do not try to power up wet electronics, that's what burns thtme up. give a good drying before ever trying to charge. After a good drying you might try a new battery if drying fails. Good luck.

Got water damage and wont turn on


I dropped my phone in the toilet and surprisingly it still works. First I took the battery off and dried the phone and battery as much as I could. Then I took my blow dryer and a towel where I folded the towel in half and positioned the phone and the blow dryer under the towel and left it going for about an hour. The next day I took the phone and sat it in the sun until the inside moisture was gone. Then I charged it my phone has been working fine ever since and that was nearly two months ago.

Phone is wet. dropped the phone in the rain...it was left outside 45 minutes


One time that happened to us tho it was actually dropped in a pool. We took battery out and dried it for a couple days. When we put the battery back in, it ACTUALLY worked. May not work for everyone or every phone but worth a try.

I dropped my phone in a pool and i took the battery out right away and let it sun dry for 2 hours then i set it in rice for over night what shall i do next I NEED HELP.


Blow into it with your hairdryer without heat. Do it for a minute or so many times to remove water traces from the insides. Do not put the heat on else it may get toasted.

My cell phone briefly got wet in our pool. We have dried it out and now it only works off and on.


After getting a phone wet, the best way to dry it out safely and quickly is to pull the battery and bury the phone in a bowl filled with (uncooked) rice for a day. The rice acts as a desiccant and remove any excess moisture.
If the phone still does not work correctly, it may be time to find a replacement.

LG Dare dropped in Pool


Just put it in a bag of rice for couple of weeks. The rice pulls all the water or wetness out of the phone. How do I know, Well I found a brand New Lg Dare phone in a puddle, put it in rice for 2 1/2 months. I took it out of the bag, put it together, turn it on. To my amazement it worked. Ran to store, bought a charger, and it has worked every day since.

Nokia n 73 droped in water for 3 seconds


This happened to me one fine summers eve in a pool in Los Angeles, but i'll spare you those details ;)

There is indeed hope! Make sure you dont put the batter back into it for a few days, take some dry rice and immerse the phone into it, the rice will **** any of the excess moisture out from the phone. DO NOT douse it in rubbing alcohol, and do not "bake" it in an oven or in too hot of sun, this will deform the internal electronics.. Hope this helps! :)

Dropped my Sanyo Katana cell in a cup of soda!!


probably too late but he first thing to don in that sit. is rinse the phone in a 75/25 solution of alcohol and water. then open up as you did and let it dry. if you can see water on the display screen your probably out of luck but keep it warm and dry for a few days and see what happens.
