I accidentally dropped my brand new phone in some water, and I thought it was dead at first but after a couple days it booted fine, but the battery seems to drain pretty fast and it also periodically vibrates when it's off but the battery is in. I want to get it replaced but I'm not sure what my best options are. Can I sign up for Asurion insurance and get a replacement with a deductible?
I'm just after a bit of quick advice if possible. My phone stopped working around 2 weeks ago with two small strips on the touch screen not responding to touch. I was in bed at the time so not exactly a wet place! (yes yes, you can make some jokes here!).
Just bought it and put it in a glass of water to test water resistance but I neglected one clip on the back. The battery indicator shows water damage on the sticker but there's a second water damage sensor sticker that's still white! I put it in rice over night n it turns on but no screen image displays. I hear text so it's working fine still.
So i was wondering if my phone could be damage from finger being too wet. I pressed the home button earlier and saw like 2 droplet of water near it due to not drying my hands good enough after washing it. The phone is working perfectly fine atm but would like to know if this situation should be avoided or does it take alot more than that to cause water damage to the phone.
Not too sure how to work this site yet so I apologize if this is in the wrong place. Yesterday my phone dropped into water for less than 2 seconds, the water damage indicators are still white. My phone was working up until late last night when the screen was tinted green and flashes on and off continuously.
