just to verify, you did replace the battery? what else did the tech do?


Thanks Anne, I will watch it.

Dear oldturey03, yes I did and the device now working except it does not respond to charging and nothing appears while connecting the cable neither on the screen.....the tech said he tried to clean it with chemicals...I disassembled by myself it after that but I couldn't figure out what is wrong LOL.

Let it run completely out of battery, remove the battery, let it cool, then put the battery back in, and let it charge completely before turning it back on. Limit your Data and Wi-Fi usage off-charger. If you see the battery plummeting, you need to put it on Airplane Mode immediately. Airplane Mode also helps charge the phone back up faster. If you feel your phone overheating, you need to stop using it until it cools. Taking off the back and any covers speeds up the cooling.

I know this from personal experience.

You might consider getting a new phone very soon. I suggest the S4 Active. (Waterproof up to a meter for 30 minutes)
