You need to try Silica Gel Packets to dry out your phone. There was a good article on associatedcontent.com that explains how to dry a wet cell phone, iPods, or any electronics.

You need to place your cell phone in a zip lock bag with Silica Gel Packets. Silica Gel will remove all the moisture from the phone and its components, something air drying will not do!

Just Google "Silica Gel Packets" and you will find several companies selling these products. There is also a web site called: http://www.SilicaGelPackets.com that has them.

Unfortunately; your warrantee is also voided by the wet. Try finding something to dry it out. I dried mine out using a hearing aid drying device. Putting it in a sealable plastic baggie with any dehydrating agent would do the same thing in a day or so.

My zte z432 phone wont read my sim card anymore


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.

NOKIA C3 GOT WET NOW WONT READ SIM CARD PHONE LETS YOU START UP WITHOUT SIM


Turn off the phone and pull the battery out. Put a small amount of alcohol on a cotton swab and gently try to clean the sim connectors. Put again your sim card e turn on your phone. After that, if the phone doesn't recognize the card, try with another simcard if possible.

My sim card


sounds like the phone is either still wet or the water shorted out the motherboard and you have damaged the phone. you could try a hard reset back to factory defaults or you might need a new motherboard. Insurance might cover this but manufacturer warranties rarely do, in which case try ebay for spares or a new phone might be cheaper.

Razor phone not reading sim card


Have you tried a different SIM to make sure that isn't the problem? I'd say 3 out of 4 times when the phone gets wet the other stuff works after it dries, but people constantly have problems with reading the SIM afterwards. Hopefully swapping the SIM card out will help, otherwise your only option is to have a repair shop fix it up for you.
