Take the sim out and leave to dry

I have previously used isopropyl (expect call from local plod after purchase :unsure: ) to clean phones up with success. Whatever you do you need to strip the thing before the damage starts and maybe give it a distilled ultrasonic bath.

Some people report opening up and letting dry but I can't see that being a long term solution. It isn't the water that does the damage but the sugar / impurities so these must be removed too.

How would i give it a ultrasonic wash, this is all star trek to me.

Just bob down to netto and get a replacement for £15.

Granted, it might not be able to wipe your **** for you, or make you look like Sam's helper dude in Quantum Leap playing with Ziggy, but you can do revolutionary things like make calls and send texts on them.

I am getting old and need a screen that is easily readable and the £15 phones are 65k resolution and i find these difficult to read.

Thanks for your reply though.

Can only give you my own experience, dropped in sea water so a little different, Sorry to tell you but it was a gonner. Dried it out but no go. Wish I could offer you some magic cure.

Piss into a bowl, throw in your phone, then give it 5 minutes on full power in the microwave.

Sorted.

I agree. I have dropped my phone into a pool of piss a few times. The thing is - you always try and rescue it.

No idea why.

I was doing the washign up not too long ago- and the Sony Erikson rang. So I picked it up with sudsy marigolded hand and watched the little bleeder slip into the steaming hot water, whereupon it flasshed at me from under some plates and cutlery.

I fished it out- but it was fu cked. Had it professionally looked at, its buggered, got the Sim card back with no fee

To make matters worse- it was 6 weeks old, and it was the ex wife who had called- aaarrrgggghhh

This question may be a little close to the bone but what the ******.

Check your clothes before you put them in the washing machine is the preffered option.

I've been doing washing for 38 years and I still mess that one up. Washed Mr EG's wallet for him the other week, all his bank cards are dazzlingly clean! :huh:

Much to me annoyance my missues is the same she has had many recurring failures where she has not found stuff that I left in my pockets. But I still love her all the same and forgive her when she does it.

It is truly the nicest thing to hear a man say that about his wife, made my smile shine it did, :D

That's against money laundering regulations.

Know what you mean. Been washing clothes for a similar long time. Put some live ammo through a cool wash and spin a while back. If the information is of any use to anyone Sellier & Bellot .44 Rem Mag still work just fine when it comes out of the machine.

I suppose the other alternative would have been to find out it made a rather good Gattling gun.

(even though it would have just been one barrel)
