Help: Just put my contract mobile through the washing machine

20
Found 29th Dec 2007
Basically I have just ruined my mobile. I have an 18 month contract which I am 9 months through. Rang up O2 and they want £200 for a replacement W880i phone. Shall I downgrade the contract and move to a new network or pay for a new phone??

Get a cheap pay as you go phone to tide you over until you can get a new contract phone?
In your position id buy a replacement from ebay or buy yourself a cheaper O2 pay as you go phone or if you know someone to unlock it the orange deal on here hotukdeals.com/ite…ot/
its a great phone at an amazing price..just need to get it unlocked
do you have accidental insurance

NO. Sadly no insurance
would perhaps dry out (30mins on a low heat....sorry just joking) but could you not put it in the airing cupboard for a week or so. :thumbsup:
I have an Barclays additions account and have claimed for my phone (also dropped in water) through that.
hi, dropped mine down toilet while flushing, left it for couple of days with battery out n still works fine 2 years on

Yep was going to suggest that one as even if it is locked it will still work with your sim

That cost £6.50 a month
I washed my phone a few years ago. I removed the battery and the sim card and left it all to dry out for a few days. Put it all back together but no joy, it didn't work at all. When I went to throw it out about 4 months later I checked it first and it was working ok, but the display was a bit iffy, so I suppose maybe a lot fo time is all that's needed!
Your mobile should be ok if it was on o2


muhahahahah

yeh ok i did tell that joke another time,.....bet hey ho !! lol
Thanks for the help.
What I did was reduce the contract down to the minimum per month. Then i got a new contract phone from phones 4 u on Orange and got £170 cash back which I am using to pay off the remainder of my O2 contract. Also blagged a few freebies like a 2GB memory card
You think you've got problems, I've just put my contract washing machine through my mobile, they're both knackered.
