Making a Call

hi, my phone is about 18 months old and when I make a call, it does ring but when it's connected, it makes funny sounds and the person at the other end does not hear me at all.


What can I do?


It did get damp last week and I did check the water damage - still white and put the phone in a bag with the rice to absorb any water.


Now the communication on the phone is difficult - I tried to ring my home number - it rings but it makes noises and it had a funny symbol like a headphone instead of arrows and the volume goes up and down!

Re: Making a Call



It sounds to me as if you didn't fully dry-out the device. It would need 4 or 5 days in the rice. Take it apart again and return it to the rice and put it in a warm place.
