    worse thing you can do is switch it on!!

    just leave it to dry out for a few days.

    i did this too with my brand new samsung tocco dried it out on the radiator for a day but it never worked properly again, :x

    Dont Dry With Air Dryer Or Anything Like That Ull Blow The Circuit Boards , Leave Near Radiator Or In Airing Cupboard, You Could Ring You Contract Supplier And Say It Packed Up Working Worth A Try.

    Apparently the best idea is to dry it SLOWLY!
    in an airing cupboard or low radiator. Dont do it on a high heat

    Only what ive been told

    Take the battery and sim out, and memory card of there is one.

    Put it in a bag of rice on top of the radiator for 24 hours.

    The rice will drain the moisture out of it and it shoud work again.

    Insurance is the way forward;-)

    LOL. altho some people are stupid and would actually try that

    I'm maybe confusing you with someone else, but I'm sure it isn't all tht long since you were e-bouncing with excitement about getting an n95 and with questions about the cool apps you could get for it. You have my sympathies. I nearly cried when my N95 fell under my knee and crunched loudly.

    If you're thinking of scrapping it, could I maybe be cheeky and ask if you'd sell it to me for a tenner? It's maybe unlikely that I could pull any magic and bring it back to life, but if I could, it'd be neat because I've been meaning to get my dad a decent MP3 player, so even if the speaker and mic are perma-broken, it might still have some use in it. Failing that, my mate's N95's battery cover has fallen off, so I could give him the one off your phone. On the plus side, I guess it's nice and clean.

    You'll get around £50 for it in a non-working state at some of the mobile websites.

    Did it clean the memory card:roll:
