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

Paperweight?

Thanks for the suggestion

But i use other appropriate objects as paper weight

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.
