    Constant freezing and rebooting ..

    Earlier tonight, my Nexus started rebooting itself repeatedly. Every time it manages to get to the Home screen, it will eventually freeze and then reboot itself. Sometimes, it freezes even before getting to the Home screen. I got my phone a little wet earlier but I'm not sure if this is the cause because I have heard other people also have had issues with rebooting - just not at the rate it's happening on my phone. The notification light was also acting up earlier but that resolved itself. The battery drained itself after just constantly rebooting and I tried charging it a little to see if it was better but no go. I finally tried a hard reset but it didn't do any good. It is not rooted or anything.


    Please reply ASAP because I have about three days before I am no longer eligible to get insurance on Verizon.
    If there's no hope, I just plan to buy insurance and then immediately file a claim.

    Thank you!

    Sounds quite possibly like water damage to me. I'm also not sure your use of the insurance policy is ethical.

    And the more you play with your phone while the internals are still wet the more potential damage. +1 to unethical.

    So I'm guessing there's no other hope other than to replace it? :|

    The insurance was my last bet but, as long as I'm paying for it, I don't see a big issue since I would have probably had to use the insurance sooner or later anyways.

    Or would you happen to know anywhere that I could send it off for repairs? I can't seem to find any online that advertise Galaxy Nexus repairs.

    Take the battery out at least 24 hours for starters. Some people put wet phones in a bag of rice. They come around sometimes. But current + moisture = corrosion and then it's done for.

    I'll try the rice thing, thanks.
    Hopefully it'll work.
