Hello

I have a water damaged phone. Can anybody tell me what are my options
The repair centre will not take it as water corrodes the motherboard and everything.Hence i will have to buy a new phone

So anybody has any idea to make use of it?

Thanks

mazuma will still buy them water damaged I put mine through a 40 degree wash funnily enough it didn't work after but still got about a tenner for it and it was quite an old one. Think the other sites like envirophone etc will take them too

Stick it on eBay, people sometimes buy faulty phones for a decent amount of money.

For future reference, if a phone gets water damaged there's 2 main things you should do:
1) DONT try turning it on
2) Take off the covers, battery and other removable components then stick it in a bowl of rice. Rice is really good at absorbing moisture, and after a couple of days it will be worth putting it back together and turning it on.
