Hello,it's the sim slot that has gotten affected due to the rain water,it could have some rust on it,so all you need to do now is just to get a new sim slot from stores and get it fixed,but if you are not electronically inclined i will suggest you visit an authorized expert to help you fix it.
After this is done you will have your problem solved.
please kindly rate this solution if it's helpful,

take care.

Your Ipod needs repairing. Take it to an Apple repairer and get a quote. If the repair is too high then put your money towards a new Ipod.

I have a samsung touch screen that got really wet hgow do I dry it so it does not get damaged?


once dry the parts on the fone may rust making it useless... take it to a foneshop so they can use the right vhemicals to clear it of contamination from the water ingress... i repair fones. your fone will most likely work once dry but within maybe weeks or months it will be useless and the IC's on the board would have rotten beyond repair

Dropped fone in water


Okay, you never want to take a phone apart to get the water out.
you will wont to keep the battery out for as long as possible and what i would do is put a blow dryer to it, maybe about 20 minutes a day for a week (remember being careful not to leave it in the same place to log) and then once the week is over but the battery back in and attempt to turn it on. if it does not work you may want to just get a new one. water damage is serious. and if you open up the phone there is a great risk of getting shocked.

Wet screen IMate pocket PC


* completely turn off the device * remove the battery * take a cotton cloth * hit it for some time, not very hot * press your mobiles screen with the cotton for 2/3 min, do it for 4/5 times, if no luck escalate it to vendor and don't tell them it is because of water drop otherwise warranty will be void. thanks Arun

V3 got wet


sorry to say this but a wet phone is ruined. You will have to take it to a tech at your phone server. They will either repair it or you will have to get another one. Water and phones do not go together at all. Sux.
