    Cheapest phone unlocked or on o2

    edit: now looking for the cheapest phone available quickly. must work on o2 as my contract is still running

    right i dropped my phone into a pint, it is now broken, ive tried letting it dry out but it still doesnt work, im currently on a contract with o2. i remember before some people were buying refurbished phones from o2 for just this kind of problem (i.e phone being broke and not having insurance. am i rembering correctly? whats was the number? any other options.

    thanks

    On a side note, dropping your phone into a pint is quite impressive, well done

    Take as much of it apart as you can and then use a hairdryer to get rid of trapped moisture. There's a chance it might work, a slim one nevertheless

    I have never heard of this, your best off ringing customer services. 0870 241 0202 Was about to give you the mobile number but i remembered the pint...

    Just ask them about repairs, say you dropped it. Most companies repair for free or a small price, especially contract users. Although your best off going an 02 Shop, then send them straight off.

    its not the first phone ive broken this way either

    Give it a drink of water then let it dry out.

    Maybe you should drink shorts, that way it wouldn't fit in the glass! Manufacturers have 12 mth warranty, try them.

    Any kind of water (beer !) damage is expressly excluded from the guarantee... There's a moisture patch in the phone that changes colour when it gets wet, once they see that they won't repair it without a fairly heavy cost.
