i recently had water damage to my iphone 4 but it wasnt completely submerged. I put it in a bag of uncooked rice for a while then plugged it in. My itunes recognized there was an iphone there and said it was in repair mode. strangely though, the iphone was not named and there was no seriel number like theyre usually is. in the middle of repairing my iphone back to factory mode, it seems that itunes couldnt recognzie my iphone anymore. it did get past extracting the software though.
i put it back in some rice, and now when i plug it in the apple icon keeps going on and off, like the phone is trying to start but cant. also, at one point it was telling me to plug my iphone into the usb even though it already was.
Bought an awesome Droid4 in early August. Broke the screen glass 3 weeks later. Touch still works, no LCD damage, just busted up glass.Send in for repair in early September, recieve SIM and backplate back from repair, stated they were accessories. RMA number supplied never works in their system. Call support, they are unable to find it, they leave a message with the shop and CSR states in 2 days they will call and update me. Never recieve a call. Call back week after original call, they have found phone and it is being repaired, also supplied with working RMA. SweGet email same day as second call, phone unrepairable due to water damage, supplied with picture showing alleged "damage".Recieve phone back in a few days after email, put SIM and backplate back on, charge phone to full, activate and use.Now my battery is messed up, will fuction for 2 hours at 5% life, then when it finally dies, when I plug into charger it starts charging at 70% and only a couple hours will be done charging. After this the meter acts erratically, jumping from 80% to 50% to 5%. Battery worked fine previous to sending in for "service".Call motorola. They say my "water damage" has ruined the battery, and my option is to make insurance claim (I declined insurance at purchase) or buy a new phone from them for 275.I can buy a replacement screen and install myself for 40 bucks, but it seems new batteries are impossible to find online.
My phone has been acting really strange recently (multiple apps shutting down, long app loading time, extremely bad battery life-- almost 20% decrease with 2 hour use) So I visited apple store today and they told me that all of the symptoms were due to water damage of my phone.
And water damage was least of my suspections. Okay so my phone has been near water, but never in it. I take my phone to the shower sometimes for music and that's the closest my phone got to water. The apple store showed me how the supposed to be white sticker inside the charging jack turned red and they told me that my warranty is now void.
They also told me that I need to pay $200 if I want a replacement and that there is nothing they can do when I told them that this phone has never been in water or suffered water related accidents.
I asked them if there was only one water damage indicator in a iphone. The person told me that there were four, two on the outside and two in the inside. He opened up my phone and told me that only one water damage indicator (external one) but they only need one indicator to turn red to void my warranty.
When I repeatedly told him that I never had my iphone near water he told me that it only takes one drop of water to trigger the indicator and that it could be anything like a raindrop. I think this is absurd.
My phone recently took a swim with me the other day. I dried it out and had it in rice and nothing has worked. The phone is officially dead and does not work. I have found someone who wants to buy the phone for the parts. However, since it will not come back, I still have personal stuff on the phone that I would at least like to get off of there. I do not care if I get the data back but I do not want someone else to have it. Is there anything on or in the phone where I can reset it since I cannot do it on ITunes or the phone itself or should I just trash the phone and not have one until I can afford another one?
today listening to my iPhone at the beach, a huge wave clobbered me. I grabbed it from the water as quickly as I could find it and dried it off asap. I tried to turn it off to keep it from shorting out, but it won't. I have it in a ziploc baggy with 2 pouches of industrial size bags of silica, but every time I try to turn it off it looks like it is powering down and then restarts itself.
So I'm having a few problems with my iPhone. About 30 hours ago, I dropped my phone into a full sink. It was immersed for probably one or two seconds. I made the mistake of trying to turn it on right away, and it started spazzing - i.e. the startup apple icon screen would come on repeatedly and for a while the screen was flickering.
I looked online and followed people's advice of turning it off, letting the battery die, and leaving it in a cool place to dry. Since this morning the phone has been in a bag of rice drying off. I tried plugging it in tonight (impatiently) and to my delight the phone revived itself after charging for about half an hour. I synced it with my iTunes and sent one or two texts with no problems. But almost immediately my signal went down to no bars and I lost 3G connection.
Since then, it was displaying "Searching..." at the top of the screen, and got bursts of connection enough to receive two texts. Literally I would turn my phone on and all the bars would be there, along with 3G, then within a few seconds no bars again. For the last while it's just said "No Service."
I tried resetting the network settings to no avail, took the sim card out and cleaned it lightly with an eraser, nothing. When I go to "Carrier" under settings, it "searches" for, then finds (after a few minutes), my wireless network, but as soon as I leave the page my connection disappears again.
My question is- does anyone know if water damage can cause this particular kind of problem? Even though my phone is working perfectly otherwise (besides a somewhat mottled, water-spotted screen), is it possible that something within the phone was damaged that will not allow me to get a connection? Or could it be the sim card that is damaged?
My blackberry 9630 was water damaged pretty bad. I went home and put the phone in rice for a day, it still didn't turn on. I then left it in my car (in the heat) for a few hours and it turned on and was working.The only issue was, the keyboard wasn't functioning properly. It would type several letters on screen when I typed any single key.I opened it up and put isopropyl alcohol on it, upon closing the phone it was not working at all.When I plug it in, the red light turns on. (and stays on for quite some time) however the phone never turns on.
I have galaxy s5 I'm currently on a vacation so I and I wish I didn't ,putted my phone in the pool,it worked fine for like 2 mins but then it told me that headset is connected although I didn't connect any,and then the screen went off,I hurried to the romm and wiped all the water inside ,but still it wouldn't work , I tried exchanging batteries,didn't work,but then outta hope I tried one last time and luckily I had a screen saying "downloading. Don't turn device off" which means that the processor and screen are working .
My cat knocked my 8220 into a sink full of water while I was doing dishes - the phone was submerged for maybe 4-5 seconds, after which I disassembled the phone, dried everything off with a paper towel, and left the components to finish air drying. I didn't put anything into the rice as I heard is the best way to completely soak up any excess moisture, but the phone worked without an issue about two days later. Two weeks after the fact, my phone is unusable as of a few days ago, when it started compulsively resetting. This happened to me a few months ago, not a result of water damage, and I had to have the phone replaced with the one I'm using now. As of today, a tech with my service provider ascertained that the phone needs to be replaced again, and set up an in-store replacement. The reps there however will be looking for water damage, and I am curious to see whether or not they will find any.
The small square sticker near the SIM card slot is pure white, with no markings or smudges or discolouration. However, the sticker at the end of my batter is pink, with very clear darker pink X's on it. I read that if the sticker was pink, it's game over, yet other things I read said that it's okay if it's pink, as long as the X's are discernable. Does anyone know for sure whether or not I'm in trouble?
My phone dropped into water a week ago.Aftter drying it, the phone is working fine when I connect it to my pc.When I remove the usb cable it turns off and error jvm 545 pops up.Then I do a master reset and then reloading the OS,.Working fine and then the same thing happen again.
last week, I went to the beach with my friends and unfortunately, my dear phone was dropped in the water T.T. I tried to take the battery out immediately. 2 days later, I put the battery back, it seems to work well EXCEPT the middle / main button T.T. I tried to hit that button hard but it's not working.
So i've had an iPhone since they came out way back in 07. I've always had the black one since you had an option of colors. Recently i began to wish my iPhone was white. What are my options? Buy a new one right? I use my iPhone on tmobile, so no upgrades for me, I would have to buy one outright. I plan on getting a new one when/if a new one comes out this summer. I did some googling and found you can buy just the back housing of the iPhone. So i bought it, and set it up. You need 3 things...

I purchased iPhone 4s recently from India and it is under warranty. My iPhone 4s rear glass is broken but the phone is working perfectly fine. So how much I need to pay to get it repaired/replaced in India?
I picked up my iPhone 5 from being repaired, and now my photos are all gone--even though my wallpaper and lockscreen still have the photos from before, my camera roll is zero. The useless AppleCare chat people told me that my photos were all gone, but if I backed them up, is there any way to get them back?
The charge port seems to be damaged as it cuts out when connected to my car stereo and it takes some jiggling to get it to connect to iTunes and to charge. My kids have ripped it off the cord and docking port on many occasions...I assume it's damaged from this! I don't have the apple care and don't have time to go to an appointment for them to just tell me they need to replace the whole phone.
Info: iPhone 4, iOS 5.0.1, No apple care, AT&T service
My iPhone 4 dropped in the water. I tried to switch off it but sensor and home button momentally stopped working. There was no any tools to open back side and take out the battery. So it was switched on about 5 hours. After 5 hours I totally disassembled and dried all parts. It starts working but... Now battery does not working. I changed the old battery but nothing changed. When it plugged in to the computer via USB cable (without battery) It tries to switch on but rebooting every 10 second. But with battery, it tries to switch on and sometimes it loads everything and there is all my application and data but it reboots momentally. So there is little difference when it switching on with battery and without battery. Other parts working properly.
I have an iphone 4 which i dropped into a sink of water i took it out straight away looked at it and it looked fine so i put it on the side. 2 hours later went to get it and the screen had gone blank - i thought it had run out of battery so i plugged it into the charger and tried to turn it on - nothing. I then disconnected it and went online to get advice. I put the phone in a sealed bag of rice for 72 hours in a warm place - in the beginnng their looked like condensation on the camera lense, after 72 hours that had gone. I tried charging the phone but the screen stayed blank, I have taken it to a local shop to see if it can be repaired, Is this very likely? I purchases the phone at O2 and I took out a contract with them for 18 months - it runs out in 5 months. If they phone is unrepairable does anyone know if i can cancel mt contract with O2 and take another one out for 18 months?
