My contacts and other important info are all in there. I can't switched it on anymore. Anyone here know what to do, please help.. thanks
you have to let it dry out.
I've heard many methods, but the safest is to simply let it air dry for a few days.
It reminds me of an article I read that said you should put your keyboard in the dishwasher if it is very filthy. Don't use soap. Then let it sit for a few days to dry out, and good as new
I'm thinking about trying that out
Your best chance is to remove the battery and keep it on the sun for a couple of days, as open as you can without breaking it. Then try to turn it on. If it does, copy the stuff right away to the new phone, cause it won't last long anyway.
I've had my phone submerged in water too.
Take the battery out.
Dry both the battery and the phone with a hair dryer.
All the functions should come back.
If not, the SIM card should still be ok with your contacts and you can transfer that to a new phone.
A lot depends on how long your phone was in the water....
Hope not too long (for your phone's sake. Ew!)
GOOD LUCK. MM
Thanks Misha for coming over so fast. Wyannjen i hope so too.
Mightmum, i don't have a hairdryer and its kind of too late to go and buy one. right? I drying both the phone and battery in the sun like Misha suggested. The first thing i did was to transfer the Sim card to another phone immediately and then i realized i saved all the numbers in the wet phone. Thats when i asked for help. The phone was about 5 secs in the water. How Mighty Mom? Is it too long?
LOL No problem Ashwin, I saw this thread before the post over there
My Hubby accidentally put one of his phones through the washing machine with the clothes. After a day or two it dried out enough to switch on, but only lasted a couple of weeks before it died forever. At least that was enough time to save the info on it, although if your numbers etc were saved to the SIM card this may survive intact in order for you to use it in a new phone anyway.
I didn't save the numbers in the simcard
Miss Misty:( God how stupid i am.
Not stupid Ashwin, just one of those mistakes we all make once. A bit like if your computer gets virused and you didn't back up your important files and photos... you will kick yourself for ages, but next time you will back up the files in advance of the event.
Yes Miss Misty. a lesson well learnt.Guess i can only wait. Thank you so much Wyanjen Misha MightyMom and Miss Misty. I truly appreciate it
Some time ago I spilled a large McDonald's Pepsi on my cell phone. When I tried to use it the phone went berserk. I knew the sugar in the Pepsi would cake the insides of the phone so I ran it through hot water in the sink for several minutes. But when I tried it again it was still unusable. To make a long story short, my daughter purchased another identical phone on Amazon. Before using it I checked my Pepsi-soaked phone again. By this time (maybe two weeks) it had dried out completely and worked fine (with just a few small hitches.) I'm still using it today -- and it works fine. Good luck with your phone.
Hi Mr William, Thank you very much. Im keeping my fingers crossed. I don't really care for the phone, i only want the contacts i have inside which i didnt save to my sim card which are extremely important to me. Im just letting it dry itself out. So far there are no signs of life yet. Hope i have your luck.
Great to see an old face again.
Just stumbled upon this posting and I wanted to let you know about a service that can recover your information if you can't seem to fix your phone. It's called RecoverMySmartPhone ... I hope that can help in some way, bc I know how miserable it can be to lose all of your numbers and calendar appointments!
put it in a sealed tupperware container full of rice for 48 hours
first, take it apart as much as you can
