    cell phone help, nokia 6133 users?

    My phone got completely soaked while riding in the Chicago rain today and the screen went out. It still lights up but the out side is all white and the inside all back but the back lights are on. the rest of the phone works.

    First off, is there anything i could try to bring the screen back? i tried a hair drier but to no avail. any other suggestions?

    And can somebody with the a 6133 or any nokia that has the same menu flow give me a key stroke by key stroke guide to copy all my numbers to my sim card? or if there is already one around point me in the right direction?

    your help would be greatly appreciated.
    When in doubt, style it out.

    I had a friend that put his RAZR in the oven at 155 f for 20 min, and it worked.

    Whenever my (or my wife's) Nokia phone gets soaked I take it completely apart and let it dry overnight. In the morning it's usually fine. You might want to try the hairdryer after letting it sit for awhile disassembled.

    Leave it alone, remove battery cover, etc., let it dry. I've heard more stories about them working again than not.

    Remove battery, place in bowl of dry rice [cover the phone] the rice will take the moisture from the phone.
