TRY PUTTING IT IN A BOWL OF DRY RICE...IT WILL ABSORB ANY HIDDEN MOISTURE...IF IT DOESNT WORK AFTER A WHILE IN THE RICE THEN YOU PROBABLY SHORTED OUT THE CHIP UNDER THE SIM CARD SLOT AND ITS NO GOOD.

Unlock Cell Phones
Your cell phone may be locked to a particular cell phone provider and in this case it needs to be unlocked to use with a different cell phone service provider. To get the security code/restriction code to unlock the cell phone from the current cell phone provider so you can use the SIM card with a different phone provider, Please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r4049238-unlock_cell_phone If your phone provider does not help you then these WEB sites it provides security codes for a small price. http://www.mobileunlockstore.com/?gclid=CKDb2_y2558CFSlJagodxBkDHw http://www.mobileunlocksolutions.com/ http://www.superunlockcodes.com http://unlockcellphonecode.com/

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.

My iphone will not read the sim card. The card works fine in another phone. My phone was submerged in a tub of greasy water and i am tryinng to restore it now.


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.

My iphone 3Gs cannot read sim card, but it can read other simcard and the others, my simcard which cannot read by the iphone 3GS can be read by othe mobile phone. is the promblem in my iphone or the sim...


Actually, there is no problem. That only means, your iPhone is locked to certain sim carriers. If you want to use your sim on your iPhone, you need to jailbreak it and then unlock it. And I got all tips for you to do those stuff.

Jailbreak iOS 4.3.1

Unlock the iPhone

Read the warnings very carefully before you try and do anything.
