cell phone?

9 posts in this topic

Got drenched today on the water and my cell phone got a little wet as well. Not sure if it will recover and i don't want to go to the local ATT store to buy a new one. Any options for me? Has anyone bought one online, one the "unlocked" ones? I do use it a lot so I need to try to rectify this semi-quickly.

Thanks,

BHS

Try Craigs-list. I see a Blackberry going for $75 and lots of I-Phones which will cost a ton more.

If I were to guess I'd say your Phone will be fine once it drys out!

Soak your phone in some white rice for a few days

This works great,

Just remove the battery and put in in a few cups of rice make sure it is completley covered in a sealed container then let it stand for at least two days but more like four.

My kid replaced her ATT "issued" phone with a Go-Phone from WM and it works just fine. She just called in the info under the battery and it was activated.

Take the battery out and let the phone dry a couple of days. Never heard of the rice thing, but it's worth a shot.

Pull the battery and then put the phone in a plastic bag of uncooked rice and leave it overnight. Works good for remotes too.

I've bought a couple used cell phones off [YouNeedAuthorization], with no problems. Just make sure it's for use with ATT.

I've also bought a few phones online with no issues. Make sure the seller is reputable and that it will work with ATT.

Rice worked! I had moisture in the camera lens and no more now! Back in action! Thanks for the tip!

    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
