Hello - New to this forum! Joined because I made a cell phone boo boo and wanted to see if anyone could offer any suggestions. So, here goes: I got a new Droid Eris and 1 week later it accidentally ended up in a 16 oz. glass of beer. Now, before you start in, here is what I already know: I don't have insurance and the indicators did turn red, so returning it is not an option (I don't need a lecture on how important insurance is, blah, blah, blah... the phone was free, I have another phone I can reactivate and have never, ever lost or broken a phone in the past - live and learn). I already studied up and read all about how to dry out a wet phone. I did all of that - took the battery out, put it all in rice for a several days, etc. Here's the deal: After doing all of those things, the phone booted up and worked perfectly, for about 8 hours. Then, the battery died and wouldn't recharge. I called a Verizon dealer and they said the battery sounded shot and since the phone was functioning perfectly, a new battery should solve my troubles. So, I bought a new battery. Put it in and wa la! Again, it worked perfectly! I plugged it into my charger and it started charging, etc. My photos were there, my contacts were there, my messages were there - everything. It worked great; for about 2 hours. Then, the new battery started dying and so I plugged it back in and it would take the power from the ac adapter and the phone would work, but the battery would not charge. Everytime I unplugged it, it would go dead. So, I took the battery out and and now here I sit. I am wondering, if maybe, being it was beer that it dropped into, there is some build-up in there and wondering if there is anything I can do to clean it out good. At this point, the phone doesn't work anyway, so I guess I'm willing to try. When it did run, it functioned perfectly, so I'm just wondering if anyone has any advice on this. Thanks.
