Ok, ok, I know how stupid it is, but have just realised my mobile was in myjacket pocket when I shoved it in the washing machine. It was on fast rinse when I realised..... (lots of swearing). I am hoping I havent lost all the numbers, and phone currently in a bag of rice. Anyone texting me.....sorry

Oh no RB.. I'd be gutted too I once dropped mine in a sink of water.. I took it all apart, got hair dryer on it, left it on a radiator over night, but it didn't work again

I've heard since, that the rice is supposed to work well.. as long as it's not egg friend rice!

Have you got an online account for your phone? You may be able to find your numbers there, if not like jp says, you've probably lost them all.

I've heard of so many people recently dropped phones down the pan or otherwise got them wet that I think I really must now synchronise mine to a computer and start regularly backing things up.

Sorry you had to have it happen to remind me.

@RB, oh matey...not the way forward.. soggy phones are not good, although its slightly better than my line manager who managed to drop her phone down the toilet...

She dried it out on radiator it took days but miraculously.. it came back to life ...although this was in the days of the Nokia half house bricks!!

((Hugs coming your way))

Its buried in a bag of rice (neither friend no fiend lmao) next to radiator. Here' hoping......been told that someone who knows wot they are doing (obviosly not me) can get info off the memory, so once dry, will ask my 9 year old nephew

My daughter had dropped her Iphone into a puddle couple of weeks ago, put it in rice for a minimum of 3 days in a sealed container but it wouldn't charge. Took it to the shop and luckily it was just the charging unit that was broke. I have heard that instead of rice those sachets you find in new shoes or packaging to keep items dry work better than rice, have not tried it though

It's called "silica gel"* Lynn and it's specifically placed within packaging to absorb any moisture that may arise due to condensation Stuff that is shipped by airfrieght is often subjected to "sub-zero" temperatures, which WILL give rise to condensation as they come back to local ambient conditions I always save them and have a nice stash now for "emergencies" I keep a few in my toolbox too * I'm sure it's available from good hardware stockists, maybe even out there on tinterweb
