Take the battery and sim card out, let this thing dry out for a while...several days.. if you can disassemble it, you ma be able to dry it out with a compressed air spray can.
if not, at least take the battery and sim out.
You can also purchase a container of silica granules at a craft store (they use it to dry flowers) and put the unit in a large bag with the container of siica to absorb out the moisture.
These are long shots, but its worth a try if you can save buying a new one.Good luck on this.

Has the phone been dropped with the SIM card in it? Have you looked at the SIM card to see if it is damaged? You may have to go back to the provider to see if the SIM card or phone has been damaged inside.

My iphone will not read the sim card. The card works fine in another phone. My phone was submerged in a tub of greasy water and i am tryinng to restore it now.


Ben, Could you try dry it first? Do not turn on.
As you said that your card is not read by iphone, i can see that you already turn it on after it submerged in greasy water. I hope it doesn't short circuit yet. Use hair dryer, dry your iphone through the usb connection hole, leave for awhile, make sure it dry, then try again. Hope this will help. For future, if phone dropped in water, first thing to do is take off battery, or turn of completely then dry it before checking it still work or not.Thanks for reading.

My pantech matrix cell phone says insert sim card


This problem arises sometimes because the mobile is unable to read the SIM. May be you should fold a small piece of paper in the same size of the SIM and keep it on top of the SIM and then insert the Battery. I think this will solve your problem.
