Lost contact list from wet phone

I got my phone wet and lost all power. I tried everything to dry it but can't get it to turn on. Consequently, I lost my valuable contact list. Is there any place where they can retrieve it?

    That was the result of my trying to get a repair at Verizon - "toss it."
    However, I found a franchise service online, called CPR (cell phone repair) that has a 70% success rate for repairing water-damaged cell phones. I mailed it to them in Riverside Ca. and they called me in 3 days with a repair quote of $35 and they expect to fix it and ship it out in 2 days. I can get it back and transfer my contact list at a Verizon store. Too bad I spent $200 to replace it. Had I only known.
    But thanks for your input.

You can go to the Verizon store and they can try. However, it seems that it has been lost. Sorry

It got wet and won't power up (tried a rice bath-not help). Is there any way to recover my contacts info??

SIM numbers can be recovered but contacts that are save in phone memory cannot be recovered!
remove covering of your mobile phone and place your mobile on direct sunlight (without battery) once its dry if on then ok if not same problem then try spirit (thinner) and clean the whole mobile circuit with thinner using toothbrush !
please rate and comment if this solution works!

My phone got wet. it only shows a white screen now. it will turn on and the buttons work. but only white screen. i need to get my contact list out of the phone. help. lots and lots of numbers lost. ...

If the phone is working, and the only probkem is the screen, then try opening it up and dryin it. If this doesnt help, then, the connection (solder) betweent the board of the phone and the screen has been broken. You would have to melt off the solder attatched to it totally, and then re-solder it. This should help. If that still doesnt work - though it should - then you would have to consider purchasing another screen.

I have a Armani Touch screen phone and I lost my charger , The phone has the following model # 528 where can I get another charger

The phone you have is a very limited edition model. Consequently, parts and accessories are only available in select cell phone stores and Georgio Armani locations. As Samsung is the manufacturer of this phone I would contact them directly at, then click on "products", then select "contact us" to send them an email with the information you have.

Water has dropped on my phone and it opens for a while and then closes again. I want to recover my contacts.

How bad did it get wet? You may be able to regain full function of the phone............Remove the battery cover and the battery. DO NOT PUT THE BATTERY BACK IN, YET. There should be a water mark paper behind the battery. If it's still white, you probably in good shape. If it is pink or red, that's not a good thing. If you leave the battery in the phone, and it's still wet, it's going to damage the battery and in turn everything else in the phone. Allow the phone to dry completely, near heat but not directly on the phone. keep the phone face down during this drying process. Be patient, it could take a few days to dry completely. Every other day or so, slide you battery back in and power on, see if it is any better. With the phone still functioning somewhat there is GOOD hope for this. If it continues to do this after 10 days of drying, it may just be your LCD screen needing replaced. If that's the case, please feel free to contact us, we can walk you through replacing it, or do it for you for a minimal charge. GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!

My cell phone got wet and i may need a new battery would that erase everything on my phone or is there a way to get everything on my new phone

if the phone got wet it is done, the contacts will corrode over the next two weeks or so if it already has not done so. I have worked for years doing part time work in the industry- If you mess around buying thhis and that then you are wasting money for a lost cause. I am terribly sory to be the one telling you, but if you have the insurance this is covered. If it happens again- drop the phone and battery (seperated) in a pot of dry rice , then use that compressed air to further remove sedimenet once its dry. Hope this h elps and have a nice day

Water damage

Consider yourself luck. My spill lost all life in my phone and so I lost my contact list. I wish I had transferred my list to where it can be stored.
