If it's only on the outside, I'd just wipe it clean.
If it's worse I'd immediately remove the battery, wipe everything down with a towel, and let it dry completely. I'm in a dry location so letting it sit overnight would do it; if you're in a humid environment you might want to put it in a bowl of uncooked rice to absorb the water.

Only after it's completely dry would I put the battery back in and see if it works. If it does, great. If not, then it's time to consider getting a new phone. It's all a matter of how much water got into it and for how long.

The above is for fresh water. If the phone got immersed in salt water, I'd remove the battery, wipe the phone dry, quickly rinse it in fresh water, wipe it dry again, and let it dry completely.

I have a Motorola W260G Tracfone and I'm getting a "Restricted Number - 34" message all of a sudden. What is this about?


Had a similar problem on my V170. Remove the battery and the sim card. Using a q-tip dampened (not dripping wet) with rubbing alcohol, clean the metallic side of the sim card and allow to air-dry, then wipe once more with a dry q-tip. Do the same for the metal terminals in the sim card slot if visible. Go ahead and clean the battery's contacts and the ones in the phone while you're there. Put it all back together and try again. This will fix most sim-card problems as long as there's no physical damage.
Good Luck
Jim
