Default Galaxy Wonder wont stay turned on

Hi i bought a Galaxy wonder 6 months ago [2year warranty] 2 weeks ago it decided that it would turn off except when pluged into my computer once unpluged it would beep and then turn off although fully charged.
I then took it to place of purchase they sent for repair but i was then told it has water damage to the main board?
the phone always had a case on it and only after having problems i took the screen protector off,i would like to hear if anyone has had simaler problems with the phone?

Hello beecherg. Welcome to Android Forums.

Well, the whole thing does hinge on how/if moisture compromised the integrity of the device's system. That can happen to phone or tab out there, and quite easily sometimes. Humidity did it to a Droid 3 I helped a friend repair, while other times a device can survive being dropped and completely submerged in dish or toilet water.

Heck, if I had that issue I'd just bite the bullet and use the experience as an excuse to save up for another nice new phone, being very careful about keeping it dry, etc.
