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.

Take the battery out and freeze it overnight it takes all the moisture out and it should start

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!

I got a new lap top. I tried to sync my iphone and lost all of my contacts, photos, text, everything. what happened?

I think you zigged when you should have zagged. I think what happened in your case is you uploaded the list from your new computer to your phone. Ah, the new contact list was, well, there was nothing on the list which your phone didn't question, so it erased your contacts, etc.

Hopefully, this information still resides on your 'old' computer and you can reload it to the phone and start again.

I am sorry you lost this information and I hope you can get it back from the old computer ... give it a try

Thanks for your question at

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.
