Bad switch??? Phone got wet.

dog ate my phone

Sep 15, 2004, 6:48 PM
Four days ago, I hit some tennis balls against the wall the other day, it started raining, and I picked up my 8900 from the ground and the phione acted crazy. It now works but the off/on/hang-up button does not work right. I can terminate a call by closing the shell but, all day today cannot even turn the phone on.

Any tricks to truning phone on w/o using the on\off button???

Verizon 611 sent me a Verizon store where they saw the PINK DOT on the battery apparetnly indicating that the phone got wet (how did that happen?) and they said therefore the warrany was VOID.

If the only issue is this one butto and I can figure a work-around, I do not have to replace the phpne. Any ideas appreciated.

Well, rain IS WET. You just said that it started raining and your phone was on the ground. So... that would explain the pink dot. and the only way to turn it off without using the power button is to take the battery off, but you still need the button to turn the phone back on
