1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Ok i read the other posts about what to do if you get your phone wet followed the instructions and i can get my phone to turn on but my screen wont light up like my backlight is burned out but every once in a while the screen will flash on for a sec or two and then it will go dark again, any suggestions as to what to do to fix this problem? Are there any fixes? Any help would be totally appreciated. Oh and i was dumb and have no insurance so that is not an option. Thank you

    Open the battery door and look to the upper left of the battery under the camera. You'll see either a white dot with red X's or a pink dot. Which do you see? If it has X's, then you can get a replacement using the manufacturers warranty. It's a little shady since it wasn't a defect, but you gotta' do whatcha gotta' do sometimes. Did you keep your phone off for a few days?

    feel for you bud. i jumped in the pool with my phone in my pocket like an idiot on memorial day. fortunately i had insurance, but when you add up the deductible and the monthly fee it's not that great... better, but not great.

    the water exposure sticker is red, i was already all over that idea, lol. And i did let it dry for like 3 days, its really just the screen and i would think the backlight was burned out but it will flash on and off so i really just dont know.
