    Yesterday my phone fell in water and I didn't take all of the cover off in time, I just left it because it wasn't totally drenched. Just a drink spilt on it. Now it's not coming on after 24 hours and I've tried drying it with a window open all night as well as a hair dryer etc. (Whilst writing this my phone just turned on, on it's own but crashed on the load up screen )

    If I do get a new phone, how can I keep all of my numbers and all of my credit without being able to get in to the phone which won't turn on?

    I also have O2 Unlimited, so will I be able to keep that too?

    Thanks!

    Its constructive advice as the rice absorbs the moisture, so it might make your phone work again.

    Your credit isn't tied to the handset, just take the SIM card out of the back and pop it in a new phone. Most phones back up the contacts to the SIM card so you may be in luck on that front too.

    Unless you're in America or China and have a CDMA handset than you're not going to lose any of your credit.
