    How long ago did you purchase your phone? You likely still have a warranty available since the phone has not been out a year yet with T-mobile. Why do you thin, you need a new board?

    Couldn't warranty it cause it has water damage. Your better off doing what the tech said and replace it with the orange motherboard and get it unlocked

    Jenny----the phone comes with a 1 yr manufacturers warranty but it does not cover water damage. I am certain you need a new phone since you do not have insurance (which most do not cover water damamge) you will have to pay full retail or purchase off Craigslist or Ebay.

    Your phone has water damage stickers embedded in it so any tech worth his pay will be able to open your device and tell if it's been damaged by water.

    As stated....you options are limited at this point. Get the Orange MoBo or purchase off a third party site.
