    After having acted as a submarine the phone seems to operate but is not
    able to create the connection with the base station. Furthermore battery
    life seems to be shorter.
    It has been drying for more than a month and I cleaned it wit alcohol.
    Until now without result.

    I would appreciate any suggestion to revive it.

    Best regards,

    Grab your balls by the left hand here . . .

    "as a submarine" means you dumped it in liquid.

    I don't understand how people can be so dense yet make any money to own
    these things. You are dealing with a two way telecommunication device
    dipwad, as such it has not only a recieving antenna, it transmits as
    well, that is when it works. That is when it has not been a submarine.
    I think the owner's manual has something to say about this, now if you
    think that "do not expose this appliance to rain or moisture" does not
    include dumping it totally into water, as Jeff Foxworthy said "here's
    your sign".

    You shorted out the antenna and probably the RF power outputs and you
    sat there and recharged it how many times while you KEPT DOING WHAT DID

    FYI, when the connection is not established the base as well as the
    handset (ex-submarine) will crank up the transmit power until it works,
    or the battery dies.

    If you heed the warning "do not expose this appliance to rain or
    moisture", and realize that if it has acted as a submarine it has
    probably been exposed to moisture, anyone can deduce that you simply
    need to take about $25 down to the store and purchase a phone.

    Your phone is dead, kaput, devoid of life. It is totally deserving of
    it's final resting plae in the trash bin. It's life is over.
