Q & A FAQ.
My My Touch Slide is Squeaking Why?
Fatal flaw in the slide's that came out first no one knows how to fix it I suggest you simply put a case over it..
My My Touch Slide keeps Playing the Demo?
It appears your phone is the floor model, This program is HARD-WIRED into the rom there is no way to remove it but rooting & flashing will stop it, if you got an extended Warrenty return it to the T-Mobile store they will swap it out free of charge, otherwise Flash a new rom if you like the HTC Sense use SlidemeRoot5
, or you can go.. Settings>Applications>MyTouch Demo>Force Close (However you'll need to do this everytime you reboot/power down your phone.
Will Google Voice work without Data?
Yes in the sense you can call your VoiceMail and check it like any other, however visual Vociemail / Transcripts will not appear until you can recieve the data.
I do not have a DATA Plan can I still use the MT3GS?
Yes, I myself refused the data plan I have my phone dialed into and saved Hundreds of open Wifi networks on everyday paths so I can use my phone without resolve however leaving WIFI on all day drains your battery quicker.
My Battery Seems to Die in less then 3 Hours?
Froyo 2.2 will have best battery life however if you don't wanna flash and wish to wait for T-Mobile to release it themselves. I suggest you turning auto-brightness off and turning down the brightness as well as the screen timeout time, Turn off Wifi/BlueTooth/Location/3G when not using them. even if you have your phone's screen off they will drain the battery. if this continues with all this off you need a new battery
My Phone after flashing seems to be Looping at BootUP?
Looping can be caused by many things, We have noticed that if you install threw the Free Program ROM MANAGER it will fix the problem more often then not from what we have seen and remember if you got the spare change laying around buy the Pro Version so they keep helping people.
I dropped my Phone in Water what do I do?
Well depends there are a 100 and 1 ways out and floating around on how to repair phones.. if it has happened in last 1-60 minutes throw your phone in a bag of DRY RICE please becareful though I have notice it will dry it out however you will get RICE DUST everywhere try placing a thin napkin or paper towel around it when you place it in the bag of rice.. Option two. Follow this guide to disassemble your MT3GS Dissassembly
Then take a Crest SpinBrush $21 and 70-90% Alcohol $5.00 and get to work cleaning off the corrosion this would be anything that rust colored white like battery acid or anything else. Option 3 send your phone in if its under warrenty or if you just don't feel comfortable fixing it yourself.
Is it safe to use any and all household cleaners to clean my phone?
