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

    I accidenlyt dropped my phone into a cup with about 2 inches of room temp unsweetened tea. I pulled it out immediately. I dried it off as best I could, pulled the case off, pulled out the battery and tapped it and dried it with the air vents on my car dash. Since I have been home, I put it in a bag of rice and continued to check on it. Right after it got wet the flash went crazy running non stop (I could stop it only by pulling battery)

    I have charged the battery back up and the phone will come on. It will connect with wifi and I can do normal internet stuff with it. The problem is I no longer have the ability to make a call, text or use 3g or 4 g. I get the error "mobile network not available.

    Is there anything I can do?? I can not upgrade my phone until 8/2013. I do not have insurance though I can upgrade using my husbands upgrade instead. If I do this I will loose my unlimited data (which I only use about 1 to 2 G per month anyway)

    you may need a new sim card. Possibility it got wet? If not...and if the water marks aren't colored in, warranty it.

    The rice thing may need more than a day or two. I had one phone that it literally took a week.

    i would do a FDR if that does not work try a new sim .. they will likely make you try the FDR before giving you sim anyway
