i accidentally dropped my mobile phone (samsung wave 8500) on the toilet...got all wet...dried the phone, tried the rice thingy to dry it...it powered up but cant seem to make the apps work and the wifi is turned on all the time. when i turn it off, i have a hard time getting it to power back on. brought it to the shop, lo and behold they didnt even try to repair it. reason being that it was bought on the duty free shop on changi airport...no warranty on singapore if i understand the repairman correctly. im going to try to have it repaired in the philippines..
question: given the state of the phone, (turns on but cant make the apps work, wifi on all the time, having hard time powering it up again from being turned off) can i still expect the phone to be repaired? and where can i find the water damage indicator on this phone? thanks.
