Water Damage, Moisture, and Your Bell Phone

Monday, July 13th, 2009

What Is Water Damage?

Water and your Bell Mobility cellular phone don?t mix. If your phone is exposed to water, you might find that it won?t work properly or that it quits completely.

Water damage is a common cause of problems, but the repair of damage caused by water is not covered under your warranty. And don?t make the mistake of thinking that it takes a total soaking for your phone to suffer water damage. That?s not the case at all. Major problems with your phone?s functioning can be caused by far less exposure to moisture.

Why Should You Care?

If your phone is exposed to water, you could find yourself with annoying performance issues. Your cell phone could suddenly suffer from poor reception, making it difficult to make a call or carry on a conversation while on the move.

You could also find yourself experiencing poor battery life, which can be extremely frustrating. Suddenly, you?ll find you have to charge your battery far too often. And when you need your phone the most, it?s dead. The reason for your short battery life may not be the battery itself, but may be connected with water damage to your phone.

With water exposure, your phone can also lose functionality. Some or all of your features may stop working, depending on how much water your Bell phone was exposed to.

And be warned: Water damage will void your warranty faster than you can say ?void warranty.? If your warranty is voided, you will either be stuck paying the phone repair bill yourself or you?ll find yourself having to buy a new phone. And both options can be expensive!

And here’s the kicker!? A diagnosis of water damage can void your entire warranty, so if you have a repair issue that is not related to water damage and you phone has signs of water damage in most cases you’re out of luck.

How Does Water Damage Occur?

Most of us make the mistake of thinking that water damage occurs only when the phone is totally submerged in water. While that?s certainly one way to damage your phone, there are other causes of water damage that most of us aren?t aware of.

Let?s have a look at the obvious and not-so-obvious causes of water damage.

The Most Common Causes of Water Damage

The most common causes of water damage are, indeed, the result of an accidental ?drowning? in the sink, the toilet, the swimming pool, or a snow bank, or an accidental trip through the washing machine. Of course, there are other, similar, causes?but you get the idea.

Little-Known Causes of Water Damage

Less frequently, in hot weather, the excess humidity in the air can cause moisture to build up in your phone and damage it.

Most Overlooked Causes of Water Damage

Speaking of excess humidity, a steamy bathroom is one of the most overlooked causes of moisture damage to a cell phone. If your phone is regularly sitting on the bathroom countertop while you are taking a shower, you are exposing it to moisture that, over time, can result in damage. If your bathroom mirror is foggy from your shower, it?s a reminder that your phone should be removed to a dry location.

How You Can Tell If Your Phone Has Water Damage

Most Bell cell phones have a ?Moisture Indicator? sticker. It?s normally found beneath your battery. Most stickers are round, but occasionally they are square. The moisture sticker indicates your phone?s level of exposure to moisture.

If the sticker is white, it means there is no water damage to your phone. If the sticker is pink or red, however, it means your cell phone has been exposed to moisture and should be checked for damage.

Occasionally, your phone can actually suffer moisture damage without the moisture indicator changing colour. In these cases, water damage can only be confirmed once the phone is opened and the main board is inspected.

Take Ordinary Precautions

When you think about how to make sure your phone doesn?t get wet, don?t forget that exposure to moisture can be just as a big a problem for your phone as submerging it in water. In fact, exposure to moisture can actually become a bigger problem because the damage often goes unnoticed until the phone quits working and you can?t figure out why.

If your phone has been exposed to moisture, you could be in for problems. Problems with signal reception and short battery life are just two examples of the various troubles your water-damaged phone may experience.

Although it?s impossible to avoid all moisture, it?s also important to take ordinary precautions, such as not leaving your phone on the bathroom counter while you are showering.

Remember: While you might not have control over the accidental submerging of your phone, you can take steps to minimize other sources of exposure.
