View Full Version : Not Reading Sim Card

08-06-2011, 05:10 PM

Made the mistake of working out with my Nexus One. Sweat/moisture got into the inside. I opened it up, took out the battery, and wipped down the inside.

It worked fine, then all of a sudden it didn't pick up the T-Mobile network. I restarted and now it's working fine EXCEPT for the major issue that it's not reading the sim card. The sim card does work on another phone.

Now I'm taking out the battery, sim card and letting it dry out. Not sure if there was any permanent damage though. Any advice on how I should proceed with this?

I'm a little late here, but I've seen folks have great success by sealing the phone in a ziploc bag with some uncooked rice. The rice does an amazing job of pulling moisture out of the nooks and crannies.

Hope that helps.
