Any chance this phone will last long?
I am helping a friend out with a phone they dropped in water
Here is the story, first, they put it in white rice to get the moisture out of the phone, all fine and dandy EXCEPT the phone will have a definite lifespan now because they never removed the corrosion, I told them the phone needs to come apart and they do not feel comfortable
Next, the screen had water in it
They plugged it in and the charger got hot, so they unplugged it and I think the screen will dry out, however, it could kill the backlight(backlight VERY unlikely)
They also told me the contract is ending soon
I think this thing is going to be a money pit with thier mistakes because if they give it to me to fix, this looks like a money pit
First, parts could of blown by charging it because my gut says the water potentally blew parts in it
Next, the screen may not work right much longer because the water was ABSORBED into the screen
Any thoughts? I am trying to help her out as much as I can as a favor
*I am not judging, I am telling what they did wrong from my experience in the past*
- I know I have a iPhone, I will NEVER give my main number to ANYONE for security reasons, so I have a AT&T prepaid phone too for business*
The have thier old phone with them in case
As it stands, it turns on and it works right, but these crucial mistakes may have done a number on it
mistakes made again!
They plugged the phone in again, and more water came out of the screen!
Anyone suspect it will have burnt parts now?
Is this a good question?
