Spilled water on my Ascend which seems to have triggered the water sticker. The phone turns on and works with the scroll button but the touch screen no longer works.
Phone is less than 2 weeks old.... Is there anything I can do instead of the obvious?
Also I paid $179 for this phone and they are now $99. Does Metro offer some kind of 30 day price guarantee?
Finally where exactly is the water sensor on the Ascend, just so I can be sure?
under the battery is where mine is located. get either 2 ziplock bags, or an air tight container, and Instant rice. put phone in said container with the rice, let set for a few days. as long as there weren't any sugar or salt in the water, this will pull the moisture out of the phone.
chances are though, you now own a Limited edition Huawei Ascend Paperweight!
why do people think the rice trick works? it doesn't unless you OPEN up the phone..... rice can't absorb liquid through metal or plastic....unless theres something new i don't know about....
because it has to be INSTANT rice and an AIRTIGHT container, and it does work. all you have to do is take the back off, and the battery. Instant rice is designed to soak up as much moisture as it can. trust me it worked on all of my phones that got water damaged over the years. if the back of the phone is "submerged" in the rice, the rice will pull the moisture out of the phone. you dont have to pull the phone completely apart. its like sugar. you can place sugar next to a glass of water, the sugar doesnt have to be in contact with the water for it to absorb the moisture (DO NOT PUT YOUR PHONE IN SUGAR)
sugar will absorb water from the air if you let it sit, thats why it seems amazing.....water evaporates into the air and sugar absorbs
makes it look like the sugar is pulling the water from the glass
rice trick worked for me, and plenty of my customers ...
do you have insurance on the phone? and check if the indicator is red or not ...
on the bright side its only 99$ now, so if you have to buy another one ...
It was my Wifes phone ( which I paid for ). She's mad at me for other reasons and wont tell me where her phone is.
F it, I will buy her the cheapest phone Metro has. I hate being married sometimes
get her a domino. So she appreciates the other phone... My wife has an ascend. Its worth the $100 lol.

insurance is not worth it for the Ascend... deductible $85 + $4 a month, and you will get a refurb; Might as well shell out for a new one!
Sorry about your marriage, do you go to church? Cuz i dont and my marriage ROCKS!!
i love me some Copy Pasta
