    phone in water/ cant connect to network

    Advertisement



    Hey guys some chick pushed me into a pool with my phone. After that my phone didnt turn on till now ( 3 months later ). Everything in my phone seems to work except for the no service part. I went to networks to do it manually etc but no networks show up. i called cingular (at&t) about the problem they said the water dmg might be causing the problem. I dont understand how the phone itself is working perfectly fine but the service part doesnt. when i insert the sim card in another phone it works perfectly fine. Anyone have any suggestions?

    This is very common for a liquid damaged phone. I cant explain it since Im not in electron engineering, but trust me, since Im in a field where I see damaged phones daily, this is very common.

    the only thing I can suggest is leaving the phone in a warm window or somewhere else like that for a couple of days so it can thoroughly dy out.

    If it doesn't respond after that, it received too much damage. If that is the case, you'll have to replace it.

    I would agree that the chlorine didn't do the phone any good. The salt-water in the Gulf of Mexico didn't do my old Nokia phone any good either so you should feel lucky that yours at least came back on. My died immediately and corroded within one day.

    Good luck but I would say you'll be purchasing a new phone if you haven't already.
