my samsung ace 2x has been working fine since christmas when i got it. I recently went camping and brought it with me, it was in the tent during a thunder storm and I don't think it got wet. There was a little bit of moisture on it every morning from dew but there were no problems with it until it lost battery and died. I was able to turn it on after it charged but my lock button stopped working. It has since died and I am unable to turn my phone on, making it unusable. It shows that it is charging, but nothing else. please help i need my phone!!

Hey anglident,

Sad to hear about your phone, but water damage from dew could have messed up your circuitry. Seems like the phone is still alive though.

Have you tried:

1) soaking it in a bowl of DRY rice. Trust me that stuff soaks up moisture and saved a phone I once dropped in a pool.

2) Try taking it to a local repair shop to dry out and check the circuitry.

Good luck!
