    My phone had some water damage and after the rice trick it started working. It will charge using the USB connected to the computer, but not the wall. For a while, I couldn't even get it out of a booting loop, but deleting the cache work. It all boots great now and it seems to work. However, the computer will not recognize the phone. I noticed that there's a Qualcom Modem in one on the Devices list. Knowing that I do not have a modem, this is probably the phone.

    So far, I have tried switching USB cables, reinstalling the driver through KIES and even a code to change from CP to AP and the different combinations. There is apparently a dial pad code to make sure the phone is set to PDA instead of Modem, but I don't have access to that.

    Any idea?

    "water damage and after the rice trick"

    That's the fastest and easiest way to ruin a phone. See Oh, no! My Phone got Wet!. You do not put a wet phone into rice, unless you want a good excuse to buy a new phone. Now you have no choice - decide which phone you want to buy and buy it. (Repairing a water-damaged phone that's been sitting in rice, concentrating the impurities so the metallic parts of th insides of th phone get damaged faster, will cost a lot more than a new phone.)

    Everything is working fine except for the computer recognizing it as a modem. It's been on for several days without any issues on the actual phone. Thanks.
