and put my phone in the wash,
Reckons theres much chance it'll survive?
mine broke after a 2 second dunk in the sink (not deliberate). Yours is gone man, it's gone.
if it was a Nokia 3210 I wouldn't even be worried. But its not mate, its just not.
What about the SIM? Will that be ok, the phones pretty shit anyway.
but who knows. It's all witch doctor stuff from hereon out. Good luck fellow traveller!
but when you get it out dismantle it as much as possible, get a hairdryer on it and then leave it to dry out for 24 hours. Might work after.
I heard that that might absorb some of the water??
Thats a bold statement no mistake.
I can hear it going round and round, I've never done this before, Ive lost phones but never washed one before
on cool for 40 minutes, don't forget the softener though.
now that you've done it, why not give it a call just to see if you can see the lights on inside the washign machine. It'll be amazing.
I knew I should have put it on charge after I came in last night. FUCK
So far as I know it's the current running through the phone that tends to kill it in these situations.
If it was already turned off then take it to pieces as much as you can when it comes out and let it dry fully near a radiator or something, give it a good 24 hours somewhere warm and dry.
Then try charging it and see what happens.
which I still use then yer fucked. I love my old school phone though get slagged rotten for it.
maybe the saying is wrong and they do infact make them like they used to.
If it is working still the battery power will just blow everything.
Wait until it is completely dry - dismantle it, hairdry it, put it on a radiator or somewhere warm overnight, try it tomorrow.
It probably won't work, but if you try it immediately it definitely won't.
I've taken it apart, got the hairdryer on it til its as dry as I can get it and left it in the airing cupboard. Not too hot, just nice and warm. here's hoping.
Will the SIM be ok do you reckon? Cause thats more important really, the phones a peice of shit, just want to keep using me contract.
