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.

Sorry should have mentioned it's been drying for a couple of weeks. The sim works fine in my 3G but not the 3GS that got wet.

Does putting your phone in rice work after it fell in water?


Yes, it does! If you have dropped your phone in water, completely submerging your SIM Card and Phone in rice will cause the rice to absorb the water in your phone. Your phone will work after a couple of hours of being in rice.

Iphone passcode not working and phone went into disable mode...we have sim card can we at least take out sim card and have it "read" on our home computer so we don't lose the data then...


unfortunately the iPhone does not save any data on the SIM card, unless the card came out of an older phone it may have contacts on but the iPhone does not save to the SIM it can only read from it. So as you probably have feared you will have to restore the iPhone back to its factory settings and if you do not have a backup on your computer you will lose all data. I am sorry.

If it is updated to 3.1.3 firmware and you are using a sim card from a carrier that the phone was not purchases from, it will not work at the moment.
