I have the cleanest nokia 6210 on the planet it has done 1 hour in the washing mashine....
It was tured on when it went in and off when it came out, I have dried it out and the sim card works in another phone as does the memory card the phone powers up ok but says insert sim card even tho the sim card is correctly inserted.
Is there anything I can do to save this phone a software re-boot maybe ?
Does anyone know ?

In my experience a dunking is only survivable if the phone is off when it goes swimming.

If its on then the phone is invaribly wrecked when it dries out....

Um a bit over from here although I did live on the west bank of LL for a few weeks 15 years ago.

Have heard reports of the Nokia 6210 surviving the washing machine test before, but don't know if they were switched on at the time.

Leave for a couple of day's to dry out and try it again, if no good you can alway's pick one up from e-bay for about £15 - £20, that's were I got mine. :)
