    Unhappy Galaxy S5 Water Damage - Sprint

    So couple of days ago it was raining, I was pulling the phone out of my pocket, dropped it in a puddle, half of the back cover got unstitched and later that day anything dealing with sound stopped working including any microphone input, calls, or back speaker all became not functional. I put the phone in a bag of rice without the battery, left it over night and the issue still persisted.

    I don't believe I bought an insurance for the phone when I bought it last month, and I know for sure that I can't call the warranty on a water damaged phone. So considering that my carrier is sprint, what would be the cheapest way for me to get my S5 back to a functioning state again?

    Thanks for any help.

    You could call Sprint and see what other options you have. Otherwise you can also contact Samsung Support. Even though water damage is not covered under warranty, I'm sure they will replace your device if something is wrong, but with the cost.

    I'm sure you can take it to the Best Buy and visit the Samsung Kiosk and see if they can help you out as well.

    So sorry to hear this on your new phone. We are all at risk of the same exact thing.
    I don't believe you have a chance since you have no insurance. But I am very interested in the outcome please keep us informed.

    Power button + volume up for 8-10 seconds should work . Click reset device using the volume up and down keys
