Company offers free cellphone drying service to Harvey victims

Greg Fischer Editor-in-chief

A leading authorized retailer for Verizon, A Wireless, is offering a free cellphone drying service to Harvey victims in Gonzales and Prairieville.

More than 20 Houston-area and Louisiana A Wireless stores will be offering this service, using Redux technology, to victims affected by Hurricane Harvey flooding.

Redux uses a patented technique to remove moisture from wet cell phones, tablets and wearables, returning most devices to working condition. Under normal circumstances, a successful wet device recovery is valued at up to $100.

The technology can also recover liquid-damaged smartwatches, fitness monitors, hearing aids, tablets, Bluetooth headsets and more.

A Wireless encourages guests to call their local store to ensure it is open as some locations have been affected by flooding.

The free drying attempts will be available through September 30. For more info call the Gonzales store at 225-331-3838 or Prairieville 225-407-4523
