A few days ago i got drunk with mates and fone got soaked in fire extinguisher fuel.
The fone wouldnt work anymore so i left it to dry for a couple of days.
Everythings working now apart from the buttons are abit dodgy.
You have to press them hard to get them to work.
Bottom buttons are worst.
The all kinda work except the * key.
Is there a way to open up that part of the fone so i can clean it or fix it.
I dont wana send it to a fone shop cos theyl prob delete all the data and take 2-3 weeks to get it back.
i dought any more drying out will work
the only problem with sending the phone anyway though, is as it's self inflicted damage on the phone, it invalidates the warranty, i know for sure that they are able to detect water damage as that happened to me with an older phone, but i'm not sure about the stuff in the fire extinguisher.
Just mention that it happened by accident - I told them I dropped in the loo
another friend of mine didnt even say why his phone wasnt working even though he had got it wet and they were fine about it - if you ahve good enough insurance they will cover accidental damage anyway...

Sent phone away.
Told them the buttons were dodgy.
It took 2weeks to get it back, they didnt do anything to it.
Moisture damage bla bla bla. I dont think they could be arsed fixing it. lazy bastards.
Is there a way i can take it apart and try to clean it out?
There must be a guide on the web.
Do you think they would take out the damaged chip and replace it?
They dont sell the phones anymore so i dont know if they would have the spare parts lying around.
Whats everyone think?
