On my Razr. Was briefly wet. liquid damage dot is red. It starts up with message "Insert SIM" even though SIM is inserted. Is able to make 911 call. If I try to charge it says "Unable to charge". I have dried it next to heater for a coupkle of weeks without result.
Is there any hope?
As for the "Insert Sim" problem, I might be able to help. My daughter put my phone in the toilet. Yes the toilet and I was getting the same "insert sim" message. THen I saw online a suggestion to take out the sim and battery and put the phone in the refridgerator. I know it sounds crazy but it dried out my phone VERY QUICKLY. It sucks out the humidity in the phone. IMPORTANT: The website I read said to make sure that you use the fridge and not the freezer. It will hurt your LCD. And to only put the phone in for 15 min and then take it out and back in for 15 and then out again. WHy, I don't know. But I did it this way and it worked.
Well i just read your suggestion and i don't know what flex pad connectors are, but i'm assuming that they're the hinges that flips your phone open and closed. anyways, i kept half way closing it, still able to view the lcd screen, and i noticed it would change from "unable to charge" to "charging"!!!! so i don't know what was going on or what happened to make this crap happen. now is this normal for water damage? i live in north carolina and it's been 108 degrees with, like 60% humidity. could water in the atmosphere possibly damage the circuitry of cell phones? well, my phone is charging...for now. I can't live without my phone!

H2o, on the phone. It may still be saved. the only thing is that you may not have the tools to open the phone. the tools needed are a T-5 and T-6 for most V3. my best idea is to try to softly scrape the Sim Card reader Prongs/contacts. but please if you have never open a v3 don't try it. just take to your local service provider or to one of those guys with a accessories stand selling the face plate replacement @ the mall. they may not charge you anything .and cross your fingers so the micro resistors inside the phone did not fried, this happens if the phone was ON when it got water in it.
Hope this helps
This problem is due to your phone's sim card IC malfunctioning. It may get damaged due to phone dropping gently into rough surface and its crystal structure may break due to it.

"unable to charge", "insert sim".
is your phone been dropped or got wet? if unable to charge, when using a wall charger, try different outlets. if using onl one charger, tr different chargers. if it won't work, try other compatible batteries if you would get a charging message. if does not work, have your phone checked with a service center
The red dot does indicate that the phone got some form of liquid in it. Sometimes parents give toddlers their phones and they bite on them thus getting saliva in the phone which is a form
of liquid. I hope this wasn't the case.
dear for not charging first check ur charger if ok then check and clean charging jeck. even not ok chen the status of solder of jeck if it is unsolder then sold it. even if not ok then check the charging fuse 0 ohams if meter shows continuty then ok other wise replace fuse.
for inser sim card check connection from sill card ic(like combice resistor)
