Question about Nokia 3200
I went fishing and a 10 ft wave crashed against the rocks, made me fall over and im pretty sure my phone got wet, im not entirely sure how wet because i was wearing a water proof jacket....
anyway it has been months since then and i have had my father look at it [he was an electrician] and he dried it etc, couldnt see any other problems so put it back together. It will turn on but at the most only ever comes up with a blank screen saying 'please insert SIM' even when inserted.any suggestions would be very good.
It doesn't take very long for corrosion from sea water set in, and it's not that easy to effectively clean and dry it(drying isn't enough, salt water residue is left). Your dad helped it some, otherwise the phone would be completely dead, but some localized damage did happen. I think the SIM in this model is relatively exposed and it's likely that it suffered some of the water damage. Try another SIM and see what happens - if it works OK then you really got away with it with a slap on the arm, but I doubt that it's the only thing broken. Good luck
