Use a blow dryer and dont put it to close and you more than likely need a new sim card for your phone.

Samsung G600 - phone asks for sim card but doesnt work when inser

when phones get wet they start to rust from the inside, unfourtunaly this is a long prosses and can take a few months but usually if the phone has got very wet they will not work propley again. they may work temperally but eventually it will probably be completly usless. in future if u wet a phone try drying it immediatly with a hairdryer, inside the battery bit too, this may help the water inside the phone not to cause rusting. sorry about your phone.

Check the sim card slot of your phone, it might be loose that causes the sim card to lost contact with the connectors of your phone. Thus, your phone can't recognize and can't detect the card inside...

Insert sim

H2o, on the phone. It may still be saved. the only thing is that you may not have the tools to open the phone. the tools needed are a T-5 and T-6 for most V3. my best idea is to try to softly scrape the Sim Card reader Prongs/contacts. but please if you have never open a v3 don't try it. just take to your local service provider or to one of those guys with a accessories stand selling the face plate replacement @ the mall. they may not charge you anything .and cross your fingers so the micro resistors inside the phone did not fried, this happens if the phone was ON when it got water in it.
Hope this helps

Insert SIM Card

you need to get a new main board.....or you can take it to a mobile store tech and have the phone fully service.

But the best solution would be to buy a need mobile....most time when a mobile gets's more of a 50/50 chance that it will work properly again.

Unfortunately, they usually fault after getting wet. You might want to take it to a local repair facility and have them check the internal circuitry. Best of Luck.
