Phone dropped in the toilet!!

OK I know the phone is dead...and I am buying a new one. However the keypad does light up. Can I somehow get the numbers that I did not save to my SIM card? I dont want to pay 75 bucks to fix the phone just to get the numbers out of it. Can I buy some type of software to get the contacts stored in my phone???

Re: Phone dropped in the toilet!!

I dropped my phone in the toilet so all i did was let it dry out for a week at most take out the sim, battery and lay it face down on a towel. thats all i did. hopefully it will work for you.

Motorola has a program call phone tools that you can install in your computer and connect your phone to it. The software will copy the info from your phone and it will also load your contact information from outlook into your phone. Not sure if your phone will connect after it's been dropped in the toilet though. BTW: I bougt the program off of Amazon for about 8.00.

I dropped my Uniden phone . Now the phone is ''dead '' , but the base station still works [ light on ] . Can I buy a phone without buyiny a new base ? Thankyou Sally Little

If your Uniden base station is still working, I would recommend just buying another Uniden
cordless phone unit. The new phone will probably have to be registered to the new base by way of
the menu screen on the new phone. If you have any problems, look through your Uniden User's
Guide for help or call Uniden Customer Service at 817-858-2929 or 800-297-1023.

My motorola razr fell in the toilet. yes, i know

You might try removing the battery pack and sim card then placing it in an area of warm air flow. If the mineralization in the water in which you dropped it wasn't too high, it might recover after several days. It's worth a try and the price is right-

Dropped my moms 8910 Audiovox and wont turn on. Just the Keypad light goes on. What do I do?

Sounds like it is broken beyond repair. Really only 3 things to try...

1) Remove and replace the battery to see if it somehow resets the electronics. (longshot)
2) Try smacking the phone gently at first and successively harder each time checking to see if it is working again. Doing this might jiggle a loose connection back into place. (again longshot)
3) Butter mom up with a nice card and flowers and tell her that she's the best mom in the world. Then when she's feeling good spring the dead phone on her and tell her all about the new cool iphone that's out.

Dropped razor in toilet

Sounds like it is done for, yes. I know a way to save electronics if they are dumped in water, but it requires to fill it with water replacing fluids. Putting it in pure alcohol right away (remove battery first) might save it, as ir should replace the water and then evaporate completey when you take it out. Some contacts have probably corroded in your phone, so unless you are (or know) a repairman of electronics you'll probably need a new phone. :-/
