42 days doesn't seem like that long & I know it really ISN'T that long, but it is making me cray-zay!
I was in the habit of using my phone to play music at night & the best place to set the phone was on the windowsill right behind my head. (I have a very tall bed.) We-e-e-lll, turns out my bedroom window is not quite waterproof, (leaks into the tracks.) Never really noticed it before, at the time we had been in this house maybe a year. But one night a few months or so ago, we had a really hard rain. Overnight it flooded the window track & overflowed to create a lake on my windowsill that my phone went swimming in all night.
I tried the rice thing & it seemed my phone was fine. For a day. But slowly I am losing things. the first thing to go was my speakers. NOoooooooooOOOOoooooooo!!! No more music. The thing is, it is not all the time. I can talk on the phone. I can use speakerphone. The alarm works. The ringer works. But I can't make the speaker work for video or music. Only works w/ headphones. Ok, it's annoying, but can live with it. Then the notification sound (i.e. - for messages,) stopped working. Now the power button no longer responds. Thank God I found a solution to THAT problem on line. (Thank you very much grownupgeek.com
I am not sure what will go next & it is getting more & more hinky as time goes on. I am praying it will hold out the 42 days til I can upgrade. & this time I will check my bill to make sure I have the insurance BEFORE something happens.
