6610 water damage - phone book lost?

Archived from groups: alt.cellular.nokia (More info?)

Hi all,

I'm in a bit of a panic right now, got my 6610 wet this evening
(accidental spillage from a water bottle), it didn't get soaked, but
water definitely got inside it.

Now when I put the battery in it lights up, but nothing more. SIM
card seems fine, tried it another phone. However there are NO numbers
on the SIM, looks like they were all being saved to the handset.

My only concern now is the numbers that were on the 6610, what (if
anything) can I do to get them back? Would the water definitely have
erased them? Might a specialist be able to help? Cost and hassle is
less important than getting the numbers back, the phone book is my
main priority at the moment.

Thanks guys.

    Remove the battery and take the phone apart as much as you can and then
    leave it to dry for at least 24hrs. I have done worse things than that to
    my phones and they've always come back to life in then end, the important
    thing is not to power it up until it is dry. Good luck

    Hi Alan,

    Well it seems to be back to normal this morning (apart from having to
    re-enter the time and date), all calendar, text messages and phone
    number data seems to have been untouched.

    Just copied out my whole phone book onto the computer by hand though,
    don't fancy facing the same worry a second time round! Phone seems to
    be working fine, if it does develop any faults then I've got insurance
    which covers liquid damage, so I'll just take it into the Carphone
    Warehouse.

    Cheers.
