    I have just managed to put my daughter's mobile phone through the washer.

    Has anyone done this and how did you get the phone to recover?

    Erm, I'm afraid I don't think it will!

    My neighbour's mobile tipped out of his shirt pocket, straight down the loo. He's a retired church minister, and even divine intervention couldn't resurrect his!

    Ooops!

    I think you'll have best chance with airing cupboard. A guy knocked a pint over mine in a pub once and it went off for ages. Put it in airing cupboard and after AGES it worked again...think it had a hangover ;) x

    OH poured coffee over mine at the W/E. He took it to bits and put the pieces on the radiator to dry out. It's working fine now!
