Default Re: Phone got wet. :(

Such a terrible week.
Sunday - I was forced to do 177 math problems
Monday - My teacher doesn't check any of them, she just says good.
Tuesday - Pouring rain, didn't play a lot, phone broke, game lost.
Wednesday - Phone still broken, my memory card (SD) broke, while I was trying to put it in, because there was a piece of rice stuck inside of the slot, and I didn't notice it. My glasses broke, the piece on my nose broke.


The rice didn't work, I'm forced to open it up. I need tools, which I don't have.

Albo if that rice didn't work find a ricer at your school (I'm sure at least one high school kid has one) and leave it in the front seat. If anyone asks what you are doing just tell them you heard rice could help you get the wetness out of your phone.
Please report back

Do you have insurance on the phone? I always keep insurance for a year just in case **** like this happens. With insurance, it's usually less than $50 to replace.

Weird day today, good and bad?

Phone WAS working, then now, the standby button acts as the letter "h" and that is the only key that works. Don't know what to do..
My MCAS scores came back, and by the looks of it I get free tuition to any state/public school to Massachusetts.
I doubt I'll utilize it though, I'm thinking of going to Boston University.

Soccer - Lost 7-0.


But my phone, what do I do now? I left it out in the middle of my room, without rice. Over night and day, and when I got back, I tried it, and it worked. But after going to the store and coming back, it stopped working. The standby button acts as the letter H, and nothing else works.

leave it next to a running hair dryer for a while. It could just be a a little moisture that needs to evaporate.

Or take it apart and clean it out... Its not hard, I've had to take mine apart twice now to replace the flex cable.
